The chef-duo of Yolani Abrahams and Stefan Roos surprise and delight time and time again at this up-and-coming bakery-café at the gateway to the Ceres-valley, which started as a pop-up but is flourishing as firm favourite with both locals and visitors alike.
Fresh-out-of-the-oven artisan breads, roosterkoeke, flaky pastries and stunning cupcakes are the daily fare. Bold flavours find happy partnerships when the chefs are at their most innovative, such as Chef Stefan’s 50% rye bread with cumin with a whole pear baked into the centre. Yolani’s knack for creating limited edition new delights ensure that patrons turn into returning customers due to intense FOMO. A breakfast-favourite is the homemade honeycomb granola breakfast. Café-style lunches are presented beautifully and offer serious value for money. Special dinner services will become more frequent with delectable dishes on offer such as the salt and pepper squid starter, with lentil salad and smoked paprika aioli (definitely a highlight of the three-course menu that was presented). More than ample vegetarian options to choose from.
You can enjoy a fresh brew from the friendly neighbouring Tremor Coffee Shop baristas (adjacent and connected via an open-plan setup) while savouring the latest one-time surprise creation (try the red velvet sweetie pies with rose water meringue and dipped in white chocolate on for size). Fresh juices round off a breakfast order nicely.
No matter who you are, you will walk out feeling like a Ceres-valley local.
Best suited for a decadent indulgence on a wet, wintery day.
