27 Boxes, Melville


27 Boxes is an amazing shopping centre, positioned right in the heart of Johannesburg’s gypsy town,  Melville. It is made entirely out of shipping containers of all different colours. The shops are all very different and exciting, ranging from arty clothing to delicious cakes. It is a bright and vibrant place for young people as well as a great place to spend the day with the family.

Two shops that stood out to me where an amazing macaroon shop and an exquisite cake shop.The cake shop, Crumbs ‘n Smiles, can make any cake of your choice. The few on display included, a protea cake as well as a minion cake. Being a baker, this shop caught my eye due to the incredible detail in each cake.

After looking around at this incredible place, we sat down at The Countess Gastro Pub for a bite to eat. We soon discovered that they make the most amazing milkshakes, with the most outrageous flavour combinations. For lunch, I enjoyed Cheese and Chorizo on ciabatta bread and a Salted Caramel and Popcorn milkshake. It was such a stunning meal that I decided to take my family back there the following week.

If you are looking for a change of scenery and something different to do. I would defiantly recommend taking a trip to 27 Boxes.

I hope it brings out your inner gypsy.

Lots of Love xxx
