Josephine Mill

Josephine Mill
La Cuccina

Josephine Mill – Newlands; Much more than an old mill. Josephine Mill is home to a collection of authentic artisanal offerings, set amongst the verdant tree-lined Liesbeek river. A refuge from the bustle of the city, a vestige of a time when water wheels turned and millstones ground wheat and barley. 

La Cuccina

An 18-year-old family-run Italian inspired restaurant, with a real interest in locally sourced, organic, free-range, farm to plate home-cooked cuisine. 

Lapo’s Kitchen
A social dining experience in one of the most beautiful settings in the city. A place to share a feast of six carefully constructed surprise courses with fellow foodies and friends, hosted by enigmatic founder, Chef Lapo Magni.

Trump & Timbal Coffee
A roastery run by a fanatical coffee connoisseur, producing a range of unusual blends inspired by late Renaissance coffee houses that became havens for intellectual, commercial and artistic activity. 

Breadology (Opening December 1st)

A small boutique organic wheat bakery run by an ardent, fun and spirited baker. 

Music Evenings
Fine dining live music events within our venerable red brick Mill – our first one is on Nov 9th with Derek Gripper

Where the Locals Go!

Where the Locals Go!

The Gardeners Cottage is definitely local agents Sally Shaw and Lynne Crosland’s favourite coffee shop to meet for a quick cappuccino or a light lunch.

The owner of The Gardeners Cottage, Lee Barty is an old family friend of Sally’s as they were neighbours in Rondebosch many years ago. The food is delicious, the staff are wonderful and the restaurant is set amongst the most beautiful trees.

Besides the restaurant, Montebello is a beautiful creative space filled with talented artists, jewellers, potters and you can even have your car washed while you enjoying lunch.

On display at Kirstenbosch’s Richard Crowie Hall over the Easter Weekend will be a collection of trees grown by members of Oyama Bonsai Kai.

The club meets monthly in Plumstead and offers a friendly environment for people to get together and learn more about bonsai with interesting demonstrations, talks, workshops and friendly experienced members always willing to give newcomers a helping hand with  their trees. We welcome anyone from the serious grower to the complete novice for whom we offer a fantastic beginners course!

Come to Kirstenbosh and see the wonderful little trees. Bring along your own tree for some advice, watch experienced growers working on their creations or find a new bonsai to take home with you from the extensive range on offer at the sales area where there will also be pots, wire, potting soil and other bonsai supplies available for sale. We look forward to meeting you, and hope you’ll enjoy our show!

On the last Sunday of every month, The Kirstenbosch Craft Market takes place in the grounds of “The Cottages” which are located opposite the main entrance to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Here you will find 200 local artists and crafters displaying and selling a variety of hand-crafted merchandise at great prices.

There’s entertainment for the kids with pony rides being a favourite with the little ones. Pop over the road to the Gardens once you’ve bought all you can at the market. There are four different cafes and eateries at Kirstenbosch at which to enjoy a leisurely Sunday brunch.




The Newlands Forest Contour Path is a manageable, 8km long walk through Newlands Forest. It offers quick access to a natural environment and has wonderful views – one could almost forget one is still in the city!

The walk starts and ends at Rhodes Memorial, via Kirstenbosch, Skeleton Gorge or Nursery Ravine. Although some parts of the walk are steep and rough underfoot so care will need to be taken, a lot of the path is flat, shady and the route is along a wooden boardwalk. Please take note of the fynbos as you pass through the boundary between Groote Schuur Estate and Newland Forest.

Please always remember to take: 
• a charged cell phone 
• plenty of drinking water 
• snacks 
• a hat 
• sunblock 
• something warm (the weather can change quickly) 
• suitable walking shoes
