THE Kloof and Highway SPCA tea spot, Marilyn's Tea Garden, has become one of the most popular venues in the Upper Highway area to gather and visit with family and friends.

In recent months it has seen immense improvements, changes and refurbishments in and around the magnificent old farmhouse and gardens, all of which have added more appeal to the already stunning environment.

The grand old house, with its wrap-around veranda, is one of the original farmhouses built in Kloof.
The veranda, with drop-down blinds for protection from the wind and rain, now offers comfortable seating for about 40 people, with views of the garden and nursery.
Inside the house is an intimate and cosy 12-seater restaurant for those looking for some privacy and this venue can also double up as a small conference room for corporate meetings comfortably seating 10 delegates. For families and friends, wishing to sit in the gardens and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air there is now ample seating to sit and eat and while away the day.

The tea garden restaurant offers a choices for breakfast and lunch, as well as an array of delectable, home-baked cakes to satisfy any sweet tooth.
Hot and cold beverages are also on sale and freshly made popcorn is now available.
Every Saturday, the ast Sunday of the month and public holidays a sumptuous breakfast buffet is on offer in the garden, with live music presented by Belinda Dolphin and friends.

In keeping with our SPCA's policy of zero tolerance for cruelty to animals all meat products and eggs used in the menu items have been carefully sourced from various free range farms in and around KwaZulu-Natal.
Free range eggs are available for sale at the tea garden daily.

The safe, beautiful gardens offer plenty of space for children to run and play while moms and dads relax and enjoy the facilities. The soft play area for toddlers under the age of four has been relocated to the shady spot under the trees, close to all the other children amenities. This area is fenced off for the safety of the toddlers and has tables close by for the mom's to sit and relax, while also being able to keep an eye on the bigger children.

With five jungle gyms, swings and slides available every day, they also have a jumping castle available on a Monday, Thursday, Saturday and every last Sunday of the month and public holidays. It is true paradise for children and parents alike.
