The Midlands rocks - My top 5!

Moving from the UK to Kwa-Zulu Natal it didn't take me long to settle in when I was shown some of the best places to eat, drink and shop in the Midlands.  These are some of the places I love to go during weekends, holidays and afternoons off.

1// Karkoof Farmers Market, Howick. Saturday mornings 7am-11am. Pancakes, bacon rolls, freshly squeezed juices - breakfast done. With a huge play area for kiddies, our little boy Jonah loves it. I amble around the bustling market selecting  fresh veggies, cold meats, breads and yummy little Portuguese custard tarts for the weekend.

2// Il Postino.  Situated on the Dargle road these are undoubtedly the best pizzas around.   Brilliant for little ones too with a fenced in play area. We love to head early evening and sit in the bar with the locals for a beer and pizza after work!

3// Nicholsons - Garlington Estate. Anniversary dinners, special occasions, splurge with the ladies. The restaurant serves exquisite food, you do have to book.  Alternatively grab a pizza and cocktail in the trendy bar.

4// Taste of Thai - Hilton. Great for a girls nights out.  Yummy curry, stir fry and spring rolls. Take your own wine and beer as they don't have a licence - saves a few coffers!

5// Blueberry Café - Nottingham Road.   Not really one for energetic little ones, this beautiful hill top retreat was recently refurbished, it boasts stunning views and serves yummy breakfasts, lunches and cheesecake! The shop has some lovely furniture and high end home decor. Check out the rest rooms!

Enjoy :-)
