Our favourite Stellenbosch bakery, Schoon, has relocated and opened up a little shop in Somerset West. When I visited, it was clear that they already have a loyal local patronage and a warm, authentic feeling is in this very pretty space.
Coffee is strong, bread is sour and dark and the pastries are light and nibbly. Perfection and integrity. The core of their business is ethically driven in ingredients and practices and this genuine care comes through in the craft of artisanal, schoon food.
This is a destination worth supporting for many different reasons.
