MORE ON PHILADELPHIA: according to an article in GETAWAY Magazine online:
"Philadelphia (South Africa) appears to suffer from mistaken identity. I discovered this quaint town a few months ago whilst on a Sunday drive. But when I mentioned Philadelphia to my Capetonian colleagues, I was surprised to hear that they either: (1) had never heard of it, (2) assumed it was an informal settlement, or (3) thought I was referring to Philly, the big city in America. It became obvious that Philadelphia in the southern hemisphere deserved a travel blog.
Situated just off of the N7 on the R304, about 38 km north of Cape Town, Philadelphia offers a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town. It boasts a quiet main street with two cafes and a few art studios, as well as a wonderful restaurant in a restored mill. This quaint town is a great place to relax and unwind on a weekend.
Established in the 1860’s by farmers not wanting to travel great distances to attend church, this historic little town has managed to retain its charming character. Many of the original buildings have been converted into restaurants or little shops. For example, the old post office now houses the charming Stroep Sit Kafee, the general store is now Magic Minerals, and the old mill, is of course, de Malle Meul restaurant. There are also a couple of shops along the main road that sell boutique clothing, crafts, and decor."
