Top bakeries in Cape Town

The creamiest cream cakes, the puffiest pastry and the most delicious, rustic sour-dough bread

There’s nothing like a slice of freshly baked bread with a knob of melting butter, or a naughty nibble on a puff pastry filled with rich chocolate. Tempted? If that isn’t enough to tantalise your taste buds, then the aroma of baking dough wafting from Cape Town’s bakeries is sure to make you throw caution to the calorie count.

Jason

Formerly known as Jardine Bakery, Bree Street’s hole-in-the-wall bakery serves the work lunch crowd their favourite sarmies - we swear by the chicken Caesar. Not only will the scent of freshly baked bread, pies and quiches beckon, but their New York cheesecake is one to be savored. Oh, and you haven’t lived until you try their famous bacon croissant.
185 Bree Street | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 424 5644

The Foodbarn Bakery & Deli
There is a real sense of “what you see is what you get” at this family-friendly, open plan kitchen. Bakers rise super early to bake fresh bread and prepare cakes, pies, biscuits, muffins and pastries. We loved breakfast at The Foodbarn.
Corner of Main Road and Village Lane | Noordhoek | +27 (0)21 789 2812

Charly’s Bakery
“You name it, we bake it” says their website. Charly’s has a reputation among trendsetters as having the best cakes in the entire Western Cape. Popular cakes include Double Chocolate Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse Cake and Bailey’s Ultimate Gold Chocolate Cake. They also have the full range of edible glitter and luminous icing, so don’t be afraid to go wild decorating your cake.
38 Canterbury Street | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 461 5181

Euro Haus Continental Bakery and Bistro
The aromas from this German bakery are reminiscent of mother’s baking and irresistible to passers-by. Expect devilishly delectable artisan pastries, breads, cakes, biscuits, sandwiches, salads and cold meats. We reckon their carrot cake measures up on taste.

210 Loop Street | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 422 1809

Queen of Tarts
“Our double, single-layer chocolate and vanilla cake fly off the shelves, but we’ll also make cakes for any occasion, including kiddies’ parties, from cakes shaped like the Ninja Turtles to Hello Kitty,” says owner, Tina Bester. She offers a range of savoury and sweet items including tarts, cheese platters, snack platters, sandwich platters and salads.
213 Lower Main Road | Observatory | +27 (0)21 448 2420

Olympia Café and Bakery
Exuding rustic charm, Olympia is a local favourite. Their specialty breads include ciabatta, seed loaf, multigrain, rye bread and potato bread. Dipping beetroot and butternut ciabatta in a hearty bowl of soup is sure to warm the winter cockles.
134 Main Road | Kalk Bay | +27 (0)21 788 6396

Knead
Tuck into hot artisan bread, baked onsite. Enjoy with a mean cup of coffee, a café-style light meal or pizza from the wood-fired oven, with Cape Town’s most popular surfing beach as your backdrop. (There’s also now a branch in Claremont, at Palmyra Junction)
Corner of Clarendon and Beach Roads | Muizenberg | +27 (0)21 788 2909

Limnos Bakery
The shelves of this relaxed, European coffee shop are lined with over two hundred confectionary items including desserts, pastries, cakes, tarts, breads and quiches. This bakery is characterised by the enveloping aroma of roasting coffee beans. Try their macaroons, you won’t be disappointed.
34 Somerset Road | Sovreign Quay Entrance B | Green Point | +27 (0)21 425 1456

Dinkel
This traditional German bakery offers wholesome breads including their 100% rye and spelt breads. Nibble on their famous German pretzels, made just the way they were intended to be.
91 Kloofnek Road | Tamboerskloof | +27 (0)21 424 3217

The Sweetest Thing
A popular Simon’s Town stopover on any trek to see the penguins, The Sweetest Thing serves up over 40 melt-in-your-mouth confections on any given day. Sip on rich coffees while deciding whether to feast on buttery croissants, huge and hearty muffins, creamy tartlets or savoury pies (their specialty is a chocolate brownie mousse tart). Alternatively, if you’re feeling a little hungrier, try the local shop’s variety of light lunch foods, like crunchy Greek salads and warm toasted sandwiches.
82 St George’s Street | Simon's Town | Western Cape | +27 (0) 21 786 4200

Compass Bakery
The “neighbourhood bakery” provides high quality biscuits to the retail sector, which you’ll find at their factory store along with Madeira cakes, muffins, Swiss rolls and lamingtons. Expect factory prices, too.
Heron Park | Kommetjie Road | +27 (0)21 783 4102

Cassis Paris Patisserie & Boulangerie
Handmade techniques are paired with specialised equipment imported from France. Under the watchful eye of pastry chef, Patrick Moreau, a dedicated staff bakes traditional French pastries, made with real chocolate, butter and imported French flour.
Unit 4 | Peter Park | Corner of Montague Drive and Marconi Road | Montague Gardens | +27 (0)21 552 1305

De Oude Bank Bakkerij
Wood-fired breads including baguettes, ciabattas and olive sticks are best eaten either alone or with homemade pesto, salt-cured Jamon or, perhaps some cheese. “I love my Schoon sour-dough bread with a simple knob of butter,” says owner Fritz Schoon.
Oude Bank Building | Church Street | Stellenbosch | +27 (0)21 883 2187
