Fun idea!
We stopped there in the morning just to have a look and take some pictures and met Ronnie. The place is simple and relaxed. They have a bar, souvenir shop and a cafe there, where they make a very tasty milkshakes.

Ronnie's friend thought he was playing a prank and painted the wording 'sex' between the words Ronnie and shop. Suddenly visitor's flocked in from afar :-) CLEVER.

This pub is located on Route 62 in the middle of know where (the nearest town is the artsy town Barrydale). If you are traveling to the Garden Route by car I always suggest that you travel via the N1 coming, and leave via Route 62 - this way you will see two very diverse regions in our region. The N1, is the scenic coastal route and Route 62 is the scenic desert small town drive. There are many farm stalls along both routes which are worth stopping at so that you can buy locally produced wines, sherry, port, honey, pies, cakes, cheese and all sorts.

The only time I get to stop at Ronnie's Sex Shop is if I am doing a brochure run (marketing trip) to Cape Town, so i have never been able to have a beer there. I just stop, fill up the brochure board and hop in my car to get to the next stop. I did however stop for some water and a toasted sandwich last time I passed through, and as always the tourists looked happy and relaxed. Many bikers stop here as well, so if you are a biker you should add this stop to your itinerary. If you are lucky you may get to meet Ronnie himself, he is an unique, interesting, friendly man with long grey hair and a beard. Ronnie is my highlight at this rustic pub.

If you have the time this is a stop you need to include :-)

We just stopped to have a coffee at Ronny's in the morning as his place apparently is the 2nd most photographed place (no 1 being Table Mountain) in South Africa ...
And it is as they say: in the middle of nowhere but what an atmosphere and of course Rodriguez music playing....

We had heard of Ronnies from other friends, but stumbled upon it quite by accident one Sunday morning. The view, the signs, all the wallgraffiti, shirts, forein notes and the varous lingerie items make it a bar with a lot of character and history. The food options are limited, but well prepared, affordable and quite tasty. Some drinks are pricey, but the standard choices are all well priced. All in all, a nice pit stop.

We had been told about this place by South African friends, and the story about how it came about is very entertaining. Ronnie himself is a real character. We stopped only for coffee as we were on a long drive to our next destination, but it was well worth it for the 'free' entertainment of looking at the graffitti and underwear left by other visitors! As others have said, it is NOT a sex shop, so family friendly during the day.
