BEGINNINGS CAFE. 13 Begin str. Krugersdorp North

DSC_0059 (2)  DSC_0096 (2)After gym this morning I was looking for a place to have a quick bite to eat and came across DSC_0070 (2)a little cafe in Begin str (opposite Keywest) called BEGINNINGS. I’m absolutely crazy (bordering on obsession) about old houses and buildings, and for years I’ve been driving past this beautiful old house, meaning to go in and have a look, but never did.

Today i did!  Owned and managed by Yolande Norden, this home (now coffee shop) dates back to 1897, when a Mrs Pentz – I think DSC_0065 (2)that’s how you spell it , bought the house. Yolande has lovingly restored it to be the popular coffee and gift shop it is today. DSC_0089 (2) The breakfast was a delight, as were the quaint and peaceful surroundings.  She very kindly allowed me to DSC_0064 (2)take photos (which some people dont like )  Have a look for yourself. . Take note the stunning Oregan floors and pressed ceilings. I love the awesome idea of the old wrought iron gate as a display for the umbrellas. AND…I now know what i am going to be doing with my old bras .  BeautifulDSC_0063 (2) bay windows. Charming garden. Nice friendly staff. A must for all “Kdorpers” to visit!

  1. Shelby, “Beginnings” is a truly special place. We lived in that house for more than 10 years and moved out when we built The Warehouse. 10 wonderful, happy years, with our daughter,Mia, growing up playing on its cool stoep and pushing her doll prams over the gorgeous Oregon floors.
    You can imagine my joy when I realised that Yolanda Norden and her talented daughters had bought it and turned it into the beautiful, quirky coffee shop that it is today. I go there often, and always feel as if I’m “coming home”. Their cakes are to die for, and I never leave without buying something from their wonderful selection of gifts. What I love most about Beginnings, is that it constantly changes. Rooms and installations are reinvented and moved around. Just like the yummy selection on their menu, their decor and ambience is kept super fresh and appetising.
