Continuing from my previous post my "BMW Sunday Trip Out"...To read review the first much needed stop was at a little cafe called the Picklepot on the R617 Boston/Underberg Road. 
The Picklepot has been in existence for many years and has just been taken over by Craig Francis.The last time I visited my "kiddiewinks" were little and I remember it being very child friendly with an outside jungle gym and plenty of space for them to run around and I was pleased to see it hasn't changed.

Getting off the bike all wet and cold, the first thing I headed for was the welcoming fire, the fire at that moment, actually interested me more than any food or drink,which for me is saying something!
Craig was very attentive and helpful with the fire and the drying of our gloves etc. 
His cafe did resemble a Chinese laundry at one stage!
The thawing and drying out process was helped along though, with a very nice, big mug of Hot Chocolate..

I was so happy to see this fire

The breakfasts we ordered were tasty and well presented. The menu has a range of breakfast, lunch and snack choices, as well as scones,muffins, cakes and the usual beverage selection.

The Picklepot has produced a range of jams and pickles for many years on site and are available for sale in selected outlets in KZN or in the cafe. Baskets of the jams and pickles are brought to the table with your food, allowing you to taste. My husband tasted all the pickles and and jams and we finally decided to purchase the French Atchar, which was "delish".
With our clothes dry,our bodies warm, and our hunger satisfied we headed off for the next leg of the epic journey.
