Customer IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT, but you can be a little bit nicer to them and drop the attitude because you have been around for so long and run a successful business....

Most amazing cake ever. I stay in Port Elizabeth and I wanted a chocolate brownie fudge cake to be delivered to me. Courier was sorted and I have the best birthday cake ever. Thank you Charly's Bakery

Is it possible to say anything negative about Charly's bakery. Thank you for making my son feel special on his birthday! The cupcake was delicious

Charly's was highly recommended for their chocolate-covered chocolate cake--a rich moist all chocolate cake smothered with chocolate sauce. It's a chocolate lovers dream. They also have many varieties of cookies, cupcakes and other sweets. You can sit outside or inside.

Stopped here for tea and a treat... Then had the salmon cream cheese quiche and the chicken and mushroom quiche... it was served with a tangy German pink slaw. Divine! Also bought their chocolate fudge cake and a custom iced heart cookie for our 10th...More

Very interesting building - colorful and creative. When insides however it is another story, staff is not paying attention to you and the food would only be good for kids' birthday parties. Fun to see, nothing much to say about the food or the service....More
