Exploring Melville

Exploring Melville

Having conducted tours around The Melville Koppies for 20 years, this month we learnt that nobody knows Melville better than Wendy Carstens. After she’s enjoyed a hike, we asked her to share her favourite Melville haunts with us.

Though she spends most of her time on the Koppies, when Wendy’s looking to indulge a little with friends and family, her favourite spot in Melville is the famous Café Picobella Trattoria: ‘We go there all the time, and the pizzas are truly divine. We love it there. They have a lovely veranda, and it has a great atmosphere’. And for a cup of coffee or a sweet treat? Wendy suggests Cuppa Café on Main Road. ‘Their coffee is fantastic, and it has a wonderful quiet and intimate feel. I love to sit and look at all the autographs on famous people on the walls. Though to be completely honest, my favourite place to be of all really is out on the koppies!’
