chocolate shots in hout bay and alpacas in noordhoek

Yesterday we decided to go try out a little bistro in Hout Bay called La Cuccina. I'd been there for a meeting a while back and I'd been dying to try it out as the place had such a great atmosphere and the food looked yummy. Well, we weren't disappointed! The food was very yummy, wholesome and down to earth. The staff very friendly and the owner even sent us over a taste of their delectable hot chocolate shots when I ordered a Chai Latte and they were out.

{Left:70% Dark Hot chocolate, which I think is my new favourite as it's chocolaty, but not very sweet. Right: Hot Chocolate Shot... mmmm}

{Cakes and things to buy. We got a delicious Chicken & Mushroom Pie from their Deli section}

{Cupcakes, which I have to try next time}

Rudi and I decided that we liked the place so much that it would become our new Saturday/Sunday breakfast spot. We sat in the sun enjoying our meal and hot chocolate and feeling very relaxed and at peace with the world.

After breakfast we decided to go for a drive along Chapman's and then stopped on the side of the road when we saw these funny creatures.

{Alpacas in Noordhoek}

Aren't they just so cute and fluffy?!? Alpacas are like a little bit like small lamas, but are bred especially for their woolly coat. They come from South America so it's interesting to see them here.
