The Recollection Village

The Village is so much more than your run-of-the-mill coffee shop or restaurant. It was designed to resemble a small village, brim-full of unique vintage objects, antiques and curiosities. It features, among other, a dining room, an old-fashioned bicycle shop, a garage with a tow truck parked inside, a petrol station, a large showroom with cars from the 1940s and 1950s and the Ouma's Country Store.

The dining room, aptly named Harley's Lounge, is based on the concept of a self-service restaurant. Here, you place your order at the counter, take the proof to the kitchen - a quirky polka-dot wagon in the yard - where you can then take a seat while waiting for your order.

While this establishment is well worth the visit for just for the atmosphere and décor alone, the menu offers an exceptionally interesting variety of nachos, burgers, chips, hot dogs, chicken strips and even macaroni and cheese. For those with a sweet tooth, if the decadent milkshakes weren't already tempting enough, dessert can be sourced from the Ouma's Country Store.

The Village also has a playground for the little ones, complete with a huge sandpit, jungle gym and roundabout. Parents can relax and enjoy a cup of coffee while their kids enjoy the creative outlets offered by The Village and those just popping in for a social visit with friends might find themselves losing track of time.
