Karoo Square – an oasis in Pretoria East

Karoo

In Pretoria East along a pretty dull stretch of Lynwood Road lies Karoo Square, a quaint little “village” with a lovely mix of shops and a great café. It is the perfect place to spend a couple of hours on a sunny afternoon. You can shop for pretty much any nik-naks under the sun at The Shed; get indigenous plants and pots in all shapes and sizes at the Karoo Nursery and Desert Pots; buy locally made ceramics and watch artists at work at the Pottery Studio; browse the wonderfully well-stocked Inhabit Concept Store; or just relax with a coffee and a bite to eat at the Karoo Café. And much more!

Karoo Square is passionate about ecologically sensitive design, local produce and sharing of knowledge and skills. They have built a creative community where innovation and pursuit of uncommon ideas are encouraged and shared to provide an environment that promotes conscious living. Here, it is hoped that tenants and visitors alike will find a space to experience simple beauty, culture and happiness.
