Buy Local Produce

Our favourite shop is South Coast Providores.    They cook their famous conserves, chutneys, marmalades, pickles, relishes and sauces on the premises.  The waft of their Indian Lime chutney had our taste buds going.  We challenge you to leave empty-handed.

Enjoy a Gelato

Chatting with the owner of South Coast Providores she recommended that we should try Il Locale Gelato which sources its products from the nearby Pines Dairy.  They also feature the fabulous artworks of Becky Guggisberg.
