Touring and visual stimulation can build an appetite for special treats, and if special and treat are the key guidelines to what you’re looking for, there is only one place to be, the incredible Charly’s Bakery in Canterbury Street.
Could these signs be more inviting, they shout out come inside and be spoilt!
As with most great things, Charly’s Bakery started far away and humble when Charly, a 16 year old boy was looking for work in Namibia’s Swakopmund. He swept the floor, made puff pastry, and washed dishes under the stern guidance of a German Master Baker until he was allowed to learn the cakes. Enter the woman with long dark hair and as they tell it at Charly’s “a helluva cleavage” and two beautiful daughters later they moved to Cape Town – lucky for us!
Today Charly’s is the place of fairy tales – and those cakes! Whether it’s a Wedding, Birthday, Anniversary or corporate function, this is the place that will create the master piece. Charly, Jacqui, Alex and Dani will listen and advise you and then deliver beyond your expectations, and they all taste as good as they look.
Behind the counter work space where the magic happens.
The cakes are true works of art.
Cupcake Heaven With A I Heart Cape Town Flavour!
So whatever you do find time to visit Charly’s Bakery. The coffee is amazing, the quiche and pies incredible and the cupcakes decadent in the extreme. Actually the only negative is that sad realisation that you can’t have it all … Open Tuesday to Friday from 08h00-17h00 and Saturdays from 08h30-15h00 Closed on Monday and Sunday though. If you need it telephone is +27 21 4615181.Enjoy!
