"Stanford RePUBlic acts as a focal point for the Thursday evening talented locals to strum, sing, play piano and generally entertain a very happy mixed village crowd. The delicious pizzas come from coffee corners kitchen and are excellent, it’s a winning combination on a Thursday evening, just a pity the Sharma wagon no longer calls. Well done to Coffee corner for putting up the stage and enlisting the bar. Drop past on a Thursday evening, it’s fun." - Expierencedtraveller...Cape Town, South Africa
