Fresh Home Baked Treats and Excellent Coffee at Bread & Brew at the Crags

Bread & Brew

There are some places you just know you have to stop at and experience.  One of these is Bread & Brew at the Crags.

Situated right on the N2 in The Crags Shopping Centre outside Plettenberg Bay, it’s a perfect place to break your journey and enjoy a respite.

This wheel chair accessible restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch, and is full of delightful surprises. It’s a place where you can relax and enjoy your meal while the children are free to play in the safe garden.

Old-school activities, including a touch farm, will keep them amused and happy.  Pets are welcome provided they are on a leash, as the chickens roam around freely.

The shop is a delight to browse through with gifts and curios and interesting décor.  Fresh farm produce and delicious treats are for sale in the Deli.

The Food at Bread & Brew

Wonderfully fresh salads and vegetables are grown in their own garden and the eggs are their own free range.  The bread is freshly baked and the freshly brewed coffee is the best.

You may choose from a fixed menu or you can build your own menu from a personal selection of ingredients. 

This is a fun system where you tick off on a laminated paper your choice from a wide selection salads, breads and extra toppings. These will be beautifully served to you in little portions to make your own sandwich or you can tick to have us build you your very own sandwich, salad or breakfast.

They do not have a cut off time for serving breakfast, enjoy their wide selection of breakfast specials or their delicious eggs benedict made with their own hollandaise sauce.

Bread and Brew serves traditional comfort food like pies and boboti and delicious sweet treats.

Sunday Lunch is a wonderful traditional menu with the likes of roast lamb, cauliflower and white sauce, pumpkin fritters and malva pudding.

Bread and Brew also offer small event catering and are known for their great service and friendly staff.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
