A quaint little tea garden

We love visiting tea gardens – especially if they are quaint, rustic, artistic and surrounded by nature.

A couple of weeks ago, a friend invited us to a place we’d never been to before: Little Streams Cafe & Deli in Constantia. The property borders the Groot Constantia and Klein Constantia estates, and is situated at the end of a long and winding road, lined by beautiful trees. I think it must have been donated to the YMCA some decades ago. It is much more than just a tea garden though – there is also a conference and retreat centre and a venue that is idea for weddings, kiddies parties, picnics…

It is surrounded by a large 7-hectare (?) garden with large open spaces as well as little tucked-away secluded nooks. Paths – some well-trodden, some less so – meander all over the gardens. It is utterly delightful.

(Pat Elk from Foodies has written a wonderful post about her visits to this place – a slice of paradise indeed!)

    • Hello Pat

      It is lovely to hear from you. A friend invited us to tea at Little Streams just two/three weeks ago; we didn’t have a clue where it was situated or what it was like, so a Google search led me to your blog. After reading your description, we were really excited about seeing the place. And we were very pleased to find that your write-up was spot-on! It really is quite wonderful there! Since then, we’ve been there with a few more people on different occasions, and were delighted each time. Perhaps we shall meet there one day! 🙂

      Bye for now
      Reggie.
