To start the day there are no fewer than FIVE excellent coffee outlets. Sample them all! Choose the best cappuccino before heading on to stronger stuff.

Starting the day with coffee is a hugely important factor in our daily lives. The Festival has made sure coffee lovers are spoilt for choice: Jacksonville at the Box Office, Terbodore in the Bistro, Barn Owl in the Amphitheatre, Mi Casa in the Craft Market & at the Art Block and Café Vend at the Bell Tower. Tea lovers should keep an eye out for Jackie Cameron’s stylish tea and cakes in the Extreme Chill Area.

But there’s more … much more!

The Festival is proud to announce the new look Bistro, now called the Crookes Craft Beer Bistro. Devil’s Peak will have four of their delicious offerings on tap: First Light, Lite, Alpha Berry Cider and Artisan House Lager. Jack Black will be there too! You’ll want to have another … and another!

But there’s even more …!

The Extreme Chill area will boast The Gin Tin – a vintage VW treasure will be found serving up KZNs most incredibly incredible Gin & Tonic cocktails. A full selection of gins and tonics will be available alongside fresh fruit, herbs, homemade syrups and spices for the guests to make their own or have one of our recipe items.

Right alongside the Gin Tin the Bubbles Bar will be serving a selection of SAs bestest bubbles (in our opinion anyway) with a minimum of 2 bruts, 2 rose’s and 1 sexy little Italian minx called Prosecco.

For those who may be concerned, fear not the Stella Festival Marquee, aka the Beer Tent, will be “business as usual” and the Crookes Craft Beer Bistro will also boast a full bar.
