Set amongst the authentic life of a previously disdvantaged Stellenbosch community, a family team (including a winemaker and a chef of River Cafe fame), reinvented a genuine corner General Dealer building into a quirky setting to enjoy tasty traditions. Lucky Store introduces 'shabby chic' and serves traditional Cape food as enjoyed in the simple kitchen life of everyday locals.
The menu which is hand written on a white mezzanine board changes daily with the mood of the community. Linoeleum floors, wooden tables, jars of sweets and an outside 'stoep' (patio) to laze on while drinking wine from tumblers.
This is no place for snobs, the perfect 'lekker' (local nice) spot for a sardines on toast breakfast and there is always a strong possibility of finding a homemade venison pie or a babotie as a comfort food friend for lunch or dinner.
This is the colourful cultural balance on the outskirts of Stellenbosch for all the stylish European influence on the neighbouring elaborate wine farms. No fuss, lots of soul, get lucky, get local.
