Karoo Cafe is almost like relaxing in a tent, if that tent had comfy couches, delicious meals, artwork, and coffee that leaves you warm and fuzzy inside. The tent covers an enormous space, with fireplaces for winter, and the warm smells of coffee roasting and grinding on site. A large second-hand bookshop has a good collection of Africana and general reading, spilling onto the display floor of a contemporary furniture company that specializes in local woods.
The cafe is one part of Karoo Square, where you can easily while away a morning at the custom pottery studio, learning about indigenous plants in the nursery, or ordering organic produce at the deli. There’s even a hair salon tucked among the trees in the middle.
