The ArtiChoc Creative Café is the ‘something different’ locals have been looking for when looking to marry their love of good food and creativity. With a restaurant in the Stellenbosch Vineyards and an array of crafty activities, it’s a go-to spot for the whole family.
Booked activities include chocolate-making tutorials, instructor-led crafts, painting and food making workshops. Wine, coffee, and tea pairings are offered for the more relaxed vacationer.
Walk-in options include breakfast and lunch, and weekly happy hour specials. Visitors can also drop-in for a couple of hours of laid-back creativity while painting functional glass items, ceramic figurines, T-Shirts or Canvases (no bookings required).
Situated on the Stellenbosch Vineyards premises just outside town, the Café is the brainchild of two food and chocolate-loving entrepreneurs, Nini Jerman and chef Norman Human.
After the initial Stellenbosch Vineyards’ longstanding restaurant, Swirl, and Bus Stop venue closed its doors before the pandemic, Jerman and Human took to revitalising the abandoned site.
They opened The Winston & Julia Chocolate Shop and Ceramic Café earlier in 2022 which later shaped the concept of the ArtiChoc Creative Café.
