Simply Majestic Garden Centre and Restaurant in Germiston is a well-hidden wonderland. If you happen to stumble across it, then prepare yourself to be impressed. Their garden centre welcomes you with the scent of blooms and earthy soil. You can find all your garden needs here, from tools, to potting soil, fertiliser and the cutest garden gnomes. They also stock garden furniture, bird feeders and an assortment of porcelain trinkets. But, once you have made your way through the plethora of plant life, it becomes clear that this is not all the Simply Majestic Centre has to offer.
At the heart of the Centre is an Edwardian-style cottage, complete with brocade finishing and wraparound porch. However, this cottage offers more than its quaint appearance. It is partitioned into various shops and businesses, which include a hairdresser, estate agents, dressmakers, an arts and crafts store and a wedding boutique! Talk about a one-stop retail experience. Pop into as many stores as you can, because you never know the treasures you may find.
The Simply Majestic Centre has one last secret in store – a sweet family restaurant perfect for birthdays, kitchen teas and intimate wedding receptions. With an outdoor play area and al fresco seating, the Simply Majestic Restaurant is ideal for weekend brunch with the kids. I distinctly remember being told an elaborate story by one of the waiters here, about the tree which is at the centre of the playground. With its wide trunk and low hanging branches, this is a child’s dream. Ripe and ready for climbing, the staff at the restaurant spin tales of faeries and elves who live right at the very top. The kiddies are sure to love this added element of wonder, so bring them by as soon as you can.
The restaurant is famed for their traditional English scones served with fresh strawberry jam and cream. Paired with a strong pot of tea, this is Sunday afternoon snack heaven. Simply Majestic also serve up a pretty decadent chilled berry cheesecake. The next time you are in the mood for a little indulgence, give it a try.
