Enjoy country-style food at Crossway Country Kitchen

There are few things better than sitting under a huge blue gum tree, surrounded by wide-open farmland and with a beautiful mountain view, while enjoying a gourmet meal. Crossways Country Kitchen, which is situated just off the N2 between Port Elizabeth and Jeffreys Bay, is the best place to experience just that.

I recently had an opportunity to visit Crossways Country Kitchen where I met with co-owner and Head Chef, Trevor Steyn, who showed great passion when it comes to serving his customers scrumptious breakfasts and lunches.

Their comprehensive and impressive menu includes servings of fresh organic salads, herb-infused lamb and hot, healthy artisan breads, among other tempting meals that I am eager to try on my next visit.

I also learned that Trevor spent many years being trained and mentored by some of the greatest European chefs – including celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay. You will find the knowledge he gained from his experiences abroad bursting forth with every delectable meal served at this delightful restaurant.

Mika Venter, co-owner and restaurant manager, also has a passion for growing organic foods and believes that every meal should be healthy. Needless to say, most of the vegetables and herbs used in the Crossways kitchen are grown right outside the restaurant. What they are unable to grow; they source from local suppliers.

It is due to this healthy and delicious way of cooking that saw Crossways being voted among the top restaurants in the Eastern Cape in Business Link Magazine.

A colleague of mine, who eats at Crossways Country Kitchen regularly, says; “I have visited this restaurant many times and often make it a weekend lunch destination. Trevor’s crispy slow cooked pork belly with roast sweet potato and butternut mash and seasonal fruit sauce is one of the best meals I have ever had.”

Crossways Country Kitchen also offers an opportunity for parents to relax while their kids discover the jungle gym and expansive lawn on the property. There is also a wonderful farm stall offering various healthy treats, gifts and takeaway foods for those in a rush.

With the rustic and relaxed atmosphere, Crossways offers great food and fantastic service in a beautiful country setting that will make you want to return, over and over again.

Crossways Country Kitchen is open every day for breakfast or for lunch but Monday has a smaller menu. Their Sunday Lunch is very popular so it would be best to make a booking beforehand.
