We took my mum to the Durban North branch for her birthday mid August. We had an overall pleasurable experience, friendly customer service and the cakes were delicious! We had some beverages as well which complimented the desserts beautifully. Highly recommended, definitely one if the...very best in SA.More

you have an option of poping in the intimate coffee shop for the slice of cake and coffee or tea or else you can buy your slice and have it elsewhere or even better buy full cake and eat it over a period of 1...year. the cakes are to die for, my favourite is their red velvet, but there is wide variety for those who want more than just one flavour.More

I have bought Chateau Gateaux cake for my daughter's birthday since she was about 16. It became a yearly tradition. I cannot think of another kind of treat that could possible outdo the birthday treat of one of these heavenly delights. You have to taste...it to believe it. Not being a cake lover, I fell in love with this as well.More
