The Lazy Lizard has to be your first stop in Prince Albert. Not only does it serve delectable light meals, and sell a pleasant collection of curios and home crafts, it is also a fount of information on just about everything that is worth knowing about the town and its environs, including things to do and places to stay. It is a lively and homely place with people dropping in for a chat or a word of advice the whole time. Something is always going on.
Lazy Lizard started life as a bus terminal, then became a curio shop, then a coffee / curio / Internet caffe. In the days before 3G, its free WiFi service was an absolute boon to techno-travellers, and is still one of the fastest WiFi services you will get anywhere in South Africa (yes, that includes Jo’burg and Cape Town). In a pinch, you can even use the Lazy Lizard’s own computers.
