So of course you can’t visit Stellenbosch and not visit the De Oude Bank Bakkerij. This authentic, artisan bakery is tucked away just off Church Street and feels like a little escape from the modern day lifestyle. Decorated in a lovely rustic way, it oozes charm and old world character. You can buy a variety of delicious breads that are baked daily in the early hours of the morning in a wood fired oven. They come so beautifully wrapped that you almost don’t want to eat them! You can sit and enjoy a coffee or sample different breads with cheeses, meats, pestos and preserves and on Wednesday and Friday evenings, you can enjoy pizza and live music. It’s truly a special place, so make a note to visit!
