After our wine tasting at Groot Constantia, we had a yummy late lunch/early dinner at a cute little French café called Pastis. It’s located in a shopping plaza called High Constantia, right outside of the road that leads to the vineyard. Sitting outside among lime trees and sunshine was the perfect end to the outing. My mozzarella/tomato/basil sandwich was delicious, and the cookie with my coffee was a cute touch. The wait staff and manager were friendly, phoning a taxi for our return home without hesitation.
