Experts say that in case of a natural disaster, your chances of survival increases if you have a boat, a slice of cake and a coffee-sniffing Norwegian to keep you awake on days when you need a boost. Hide in the shelter of the Makaranga Garden Lodge and take in the views with today’s Groupon: Speciality coffee and a giant slice of cake for R30 at Makaranga Garden Lodge.
Known to send the average human being into sparkly, wide-eyed wonder; put more than an icing-filled smile on a face and induce bouts of hysterical happiness, cake should more appropriately be termed the eighth world wonder. And when combined with the word giant, the forces of cake are more powerful than the springs of a giant trampoline, capable of providing a six year-old with enough energy to circle the globe on foot in eighty days. While carrying a baby llama.
Of course, you can only imagine that when giant cake is placed next to speciality coffee in the Makaranga Garden Lodge restaurant, the results are bound to be a tea-time enchantment. With wrought-iron garden chairs and chandeliers elegantly suspended just below the ceiling, the restaurant radiates a somewhat Victorian garden style. Overlooking the lush garden landscapes, you’ll have ample time to take in the sights of the Lodge’s magnificent gardens while enjoying the giant-ness of your slice of cake, and the happiness-in-a-cup speciality coffee brewed by staff with an uncanny talent for presenting customers with delicious flavour combinations. Whether you like your coffee stirred once; twice; or up and down, up and down and then once around; the delectability of Makaranga’s coffee and cake will no doubt be a match made in pastry paradise.
Fake Fact: A restaurant atop a mountain in Greece prides itself on being made entirely out of fake items. This includes fake flowers, faux wood beams, and realistic chandelier replicas made entirely out of styrofoam. Above all, food is made to look entirely like something else, including a famouse barbeque chicken and rice dish presented resembling chocolate cake.
