Fodor's Review

Redolent of tobacco, dried fish, and spices, this 19th-century-style general store is one of Stellenbosch's most popular landmarks. In addition to the usual Cape kitsch, Oom Samie sells some genuine South African produce, including witblitz and mampoer, both Afrikaner versions of moonshine. The shop has a restaurant, too.
