Clay Café in George has officially opened: And the Garden Route is going to be forever grateful –
What you need to know about The Garden Route:
The Garden Route has long been known as a destination that thrives in treating travelers and adventurers alike with a taste of serenity and tranquil natural surroundings. The garden Route is seen as unique and special to the Cape . The region boasts a coastline of 300km’s situated between Mossel Bay & Plettenberg Bay . It’s not surprising that next to Cape Town, it is just as much of a popular Holiday destination as our prided Atlantic Seaboard or Hout Bay . A gorgeous mountain range nestles tight and close to the shoreline . As you enjoy your leisurely drive toward our new Clay Café venue in George enjoy the view of the coastline dotted with beaches and bays, and vividly coloured wild flowers, brightly on display during Spring Month and beyond!

What Is So Special About George?
It has long been a belief that George was first explored as far back as 1688 , in the hope of finding fresh food and water. Eventually the city was named after King George |||.
This King was England’s ruling Monarch at the time.
George is one of those places that offers something for everyone under the sun! Visiting George would not be a complete experience without exploring natural treasures such as
Montagu and Outeniqua Passes. George also includes some seriously historical landmarks such as Pacaltsdorp Stone Church – the oldest church in George – and the ancient slave tree in York Street. Other must-see attractions include the Railway Museum, the ever-popular Hop Route, the Museum – a collection of local gems – and the beautiful greenery of the Garden Route Botanical Garden at the top of Caledon Street.
The Garden Route has a Mediterranean climate with mild to chilly winters and moderately hot summers. During the warmer months – November to March – the cool water of the Indian Ocean is the perfect ending to a long, hot day.
