Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Elgin, in Western Cape

In the scenic heart of the Overberg, within the unrivalled beauty of the Western Cape Province of South Africa, is the small town of Elgin. The entire area is known for its abundant, productive apple farms. In fact, this valley produces the vast majority of the country’s apples and is, as a result, a major hotspot in terms of international export, despite being so small; even quaint.

This hospitable hub is home to the Platform 1 Eatery, where a warm ambience is complemented by innovative dishes and fresh ingredients. The menu style is described as being “country bistro”, referring to the homemade, hearty appeal of the dishes, while maintaining a sense of fun and newness.

Delicious coffees, open sandwiches, tapas boards, soups, stews, burgers, steaks, quiches and salads are all on offer for the peckish or the very hungry. Some Platform 1 specials include the home-made chicken- and mince balls with a variety of toasted nuts, free-range chicken wings and pesto chicken kebabs, caramelised pear and blue cheese spring-rolls, and the brie and camembert cheese wedges; all of which are available as tapas options.

In addition, there are sweet treats to tempt even the most disciplined of diners. These include carrot cake with caramelised lemon and walnuts, a double chocolate cake for that extra indulgence and a fresh lemon poppy seed cake.

Thanks to the abundance of world-renowned wines that can be found in the Cape Winelands, the Platform 1 Eatery offers plenty of delicious options to pair with your meal. These can be ordered by the glass or the bottle.

The quirky décor and friendly service of Platform 1 only add to its appeal, making it an ideal spot to stop over en route to or from Cape Town, or an attraction in its own right for those wanting to celebrate time with friends and family.
