Our coffee tour continues as we made our way to
The Pottery, an escape from the hustle in the busy York street. An exciting pizzeria, pottery studio and coffee shop with curios for sale. The place started as an old pottery shed where Wonki Ware used to make their creations from. They decided to open their own cafe and creative emporium. This is the perfect spot for for a family lunch or coffee date with your significant other. Upon entering the creative emporium, there is a huge play area for kids to play in and parents can watch them from their tables. They have a wide array of coffee and drinks, the buzz and sound of kids laughing blissfully sets the perfect scene to unwind and relax. Choose from MannaBrew Coffee alternative to smoohies and from pizza to open vegetarian sandwiches.
I had the
MannaBrew, it’s a superfood espresso/latte and the perfect coffee-alternative as it does not contain caffeine has no acidity. I love flavoured drinks the friendly waiter asked the barista to make me a special cuppa. The staff are very accommodating and made me a hazelnut flavoured Mannabrew latte. It tasted amazing and priced at only R36.
Watch the video below to learn more about the amazing superfood coffee alternative.
They have a
full sit down menu and we enjoyed their toasted vegetarian open sanwiches and meaty thin base pizza. They are affordable and lunch will cost you around R120 per person. Unleash your inner artist
Here is a guide on how the pottery painting works:
Make your way to the pottery shop. Purchase whatever item you wish to design (coffee mug, bowl, plate, pot plant, etc) After which, a waiter will come to your table with a painting kit. And you’re ready to go. Come back in 2-3 weeks to allow them to bake your item and set your design. Various coffee related pottery pieces to choose from

A Garden route experience The Decon Coffee House Food and Drink
On the last day of the trip, we decided to search for a speciality coffee/breakfast venue that is child-friendly. We had come across
The Deacon House. The word ‘coffee’ is the first thing you see as you enter this elegant venue. The restaurant was mesmerizing, has a vintage niche feel and the service compliments the entire experience. It felt as if we stepped into a different era with beautiful lush garden views all around.
My son had the cutest little
Babychino which made him feel part of the tour. It’s made with milk and cinnamon which actually relaxes busy little boys. Their smoked salmon was fresh and not to salty with fluffy scrambled eggs. This is a coffee shop you must visit if you ever find yourself in George. The Deacon Coffee House
