A new coffee and pastry cafe has opened in my hood… Chocolat et Gateaux, and I didn’t have the kids with me this morning so I popped in for a cappuccino to see what it’s all about.

I didn’t have my proper camera on me, but I did take some photos with my iPhone 😉

Chocolat et Gateaux is a little coffee shop that also sells loads of pastries (and I see on their Facebook page that the pastries are gluten free), cakes and other things… I spotted hand made little chocolates as well as macaroons too! They also have a small menu with breakfasts and lunches for those not wanting cake.

The cappuccino was actually so nice that I ended up having two! Of course I had to sample their pastries too 😉 I ordered an apple danish, one of my favourite, and I LOVED it! The pastry was so light and crispy, and there was just enough apple in it. I also liked that the pastry wasn’t very big, so I didn’t feel too piggish

The coffee shop is in the Honeydew Village centre close to Randpark Ridge, Weltevreden Park and Radiokop.
