Sunday lunch at Weskusplek in Jacobsbaai

I spent last weekend in the West Coast and spent the better half of Sunday exploring Jacobsbaai, a quaint little coastal village about 15 min from Langebaan. We had lunch at the famous Weskusplek, a restaurant owned by Steve Hofmeyr. The restaurant is situated within a gorgeous bay that overlooks the cold Atlantic Ocean and fynbos. 
The inside decor is stunning. Everything is warm and cozy which makes you feel at home. A majestic fireplace is the main attraction which has dozens of Steve’s childhood pictures placed above it. 

At most eateries you will receive a bread roll or slice of fresh bread upon arrival. This however is not the case at Weskusplek, here you have a huge selection of breads available to you that you may simply pick and choose from. My personal favourite was the seeded brown bread and white peppadew bread. The selection included muscle bread, olive bread, chilli bread and dozens of plain breads alongside a selection of spreads and butter.

The food at Weskusplek is not badly priced. You can pay anything between R40 and R100 for a fresh indulgent meal. Make sure you enquire about the specials of the day as this is worth having.

Jacobsbaai offers visitors the perfect escape from the hustle of the city. If the drive is a bit of a distance for just a day visit then there is amazing seaside accommodation available at reasonable rates. For those like me who enjoy tranquil weekends away but still have the sudden urge to splurge there is a quaint shop located near the Weskusplek restaurant that features the most amazing items ranging from bath products to furniture which is definitely worth checking out.
