Places to Eat in Stanford

Set in the countryside with the Klein River as a backdrop, you can be sure that the eateries in Stanford are a delight. With dishes made with ingredients grown in the restaurants backyard and complimented with freshly baked treats, every meal is a country culinary experience like no other

Whether you enjoy the quick treats and freshly brewed java of the quaint coffee shops or the full course menus of the inviting restaurants, Stanford has it all. The streets of the artsy village is lined with friendly little eateries that will definitely have you going back for seconds.

The rich history and artistic influence of the village gets translated into the meals of the various eateries as they combine traditional recipes with a new colourful array of flavours. Enjoy the tastes of freshly baked cakes, tarts and desserts as you catch up on your gossip in the cosy little coffee shops scattered about town. Most of these social nooks also hold various artworks from the local artists and lends even more so to the ambience.

For those looking for a light lunch or snack, why not try one of the café’s or delis in town? Offering a full menu of light meals and snacks perfect for the on-the-go traveller, these delightful eateries should not be missed. Alternatively those who are in a bit of an exploratory mood can pop into the nearby farm stalls and take their time browsing the aisles. Discover a world of baked goods, organic treats and beautifully hand-made crafts and curios to take home as a souvenir. 

With Stanford located in the beautiful countryside and on the banks of the Klein River it would only seem fitting to combine that with the delectable produce of Klein River Cheese and Picnics. Enjoy the flavourful pairing of award-winning cheeses with local and neighbouring wines while the kids entertain themselves with the farm animals on the grounds. The Klein River also offers scenic boat tours and one of the boats even has braai facilities on board. What better way to end off the day than with a delectable meal shared with friends while cruising down a world-renown river.

Then of course we also have the beautiful wine farms of Stanford. Named after the founding father of the town and the other after the abundant bay of deep blue ocean that lies just beyond the hills, these wine farms are another culinary must-see of the village. Set at the foot of majestic mountains and overlooking the fields and dams of the Stanford Valley, the wine farms showcase the village in its true light. Beautifully aged wines compliment the delectable chef’s creations perfectly and lend to the perfect outing, whether with friends or colleagues. Enhanced with the Stanford’s touch, there are kayaking on the dams and playgrounds for the kids while the dogs join the resident pooches in running around.

Dining in Stanford is truly a unique experience as it incorporates the history, the landscape and the artistic flair of the village. Located on pristine wine farms, boasting award-winning products and local wines and some even ranked among the best country restaurants in South Africa, the places to eat in Stanford only dish up the best.
