The Tolbossie Padstal (“farm stall”) is situated on the picturesque West Coast of South Africa. It has gained acclaim amongst locals and regular visitors for its array of homemade goodies that are so characteristic of this part of the country. All of the suppliers are from the West Coast, making the flavours and treats all very authentic.
Some of the tasty features of the Tolbossie offering include wild watermelon, ginger jam, beetroot chutney, and curried pineapple atchar. Because the West Coast is known for its fresh seafood, the snoek pies, curried fish, roll mops and mussel pies are an absolute must.
Gifts, trinkets and goods for the home are also available here, making it a one-stop-shop for tourists looking for keepsakes to take home to friends and family. The witblits produced here is a potent alcoholic brandy that takes your breath away but leaves you wanting more of this South African favourite. Tolbossie is famous for their unique witblits, which should only be sampled by those not driving.
