Want to experience the true Stellenbosch vibe, take a walk down Dorp Street and be sure not to miss Oom Samie se Winkel and have eggs benedict at Mellissa's next door.

Dorp Street is buzzing. It’s the Main Street and has a plethora of cafes, restaurants and shops. It’s quaint and touristy. Parking difficult.
