Yellowwood Cafe, KwaZulu Natal Midlands

Last weekend my Aunt was visiting from Jozi and we decided to have breakfast/tea on Saturday morning at Yellowwood Cafe on the Karkloof Road, just outside of Howick.

The main building is a gorgeous old stone house that has been converted into a restaurant/cafe and the property faces Howick Falls, a popular tourist attraction in the area. There are tables and umbrellas set up in the garden, and there’s plenty of space for kiddies to run around and play – in fact, it’s a miniature paradise in more ways than one!

Besides the massive jungle gyms, the main attraction for little people is the little animals – yip, miniature breeds of horses, cows, pigs, rabbits – you name it – CUTE OVERLOAD!

Yellowwood holds a special place in my heart because behind the big stone house is a beautiful purpose built wedding venue where Mr Bird and I held our wedding reception just over three years ago – such a happy and wonderful day β™₯

The old stone house…

Big fat miniature ponies…

Silly old goat…

Look who joined us for tea (not a miniature, unfortunately!)

And these delightful creatures were not at Yellowwood, but thought I would include a pic of them in any case – we spotted them on the driveway up to a friends house just up the road from Yellowwood later that day – love Africa!
