Another great food find in the Eastern Cape – in fact not ONE but TWO!

Our inFood flatbread

Spending time recently with friends in St. Francis Bay we were introduced to two great ‘foodie’ finds.   The first we didn’t have time to sample – but the reviews speak for themselves and we shall definitely plan another visit soon to sample some of their highly rated cuisine.  Charles Black’s Five Elements is a custom designed restaurant nestled amongst new vineyards, indigenous forest and olive orchards just on the outskirts of this small coastal resort.  Check out their website www.five-elements.co.za – how tempting is that?!

The second find was a small eaterie in Jeffreys Bay called inFood in Schelde Street just a few hundred yards from the beach.   Wonderful coffee, a fantastic range of artisan breads, patisseries more at home in Parisian cafes and an interesting breakfast, lunch and vegetarian menu filled with fresh and innovative ideas.   Packed to capacity on a Saturday mid-morning (evidence of its growing reputation) we enjoyed a 4 cheese flatbread embellished with avocado, chorizo and a delicious tomato chilli chutney, decorated with a handful of freshly picked rocket.  We followed this with one of their zany little individual lemon meringue pies.  Delicious – all served with a smile and at speed.

Their website www.infood.co.za is well worth a visit.   You’ll need little else to tempt you to get travelling to this gem on the Eastern Cape coast.
