Cakes... Cakes... Cakes... Everywhere!!! I'm spoilt for choice here in this bakery @limnos in Claremont! While I've been in Cape Town this past month, I've been sampling the gastronomical delights of this coffee restaurant stores and totally impressed with the quality and standard of the cakes and dessert decadence. This store in Claremont has a clean, fresh, light and airy... More

Review for the Stellenbosch outlet (in Eikestad Mall): I regularly meet colleagues and friends here, as one can have a nice conversation without too much noise. The cakes and biscuits look beautiful, but they don't taste as nice as they appear. The service is consistently terrible (read: non-existent). Every. Single. Time. I have to get up and remind the waiter... More

Visited the outlet in Canal Walk. Cakes were normal. Nothing out of the ordinary. Service was poor. Even though we sat down, we had to repeatedly go up to the counter to request stuff. Ladies behind the counter were very helpful. If the waitress was more accessible we would have tried more cakes. Left disappointed

So many options to decide on... Everything looked so amazing, took us almost 20 minutes to decided. Definitely death by chocolate. Definitely in my happy place after a visit to this bakery in canal walk. Will definitely visit this bakery again.

I've been twice to Limnos Bakers at Canalwalk shopping centre during my last trip to Cape Town. Oh my word. Their cakes are super delicious. At the first visit there were 3 of us, so I was able to get a forkful of chocolate fudge cake and black forest cake, and I thouroughly enjoyed my cream cheese cake with strawberry... More

Lovely bakery, lovely people. The cakes are to die for. Wish we had visited at the beginning of our trip instead of near the end. Great coffee and breakfasts too. Well worth stopping by.

Eye candy The display is so pretty and tempting and sensibly behind glass. The choice just has to be best in Cape Town ( or very near the best ) Pies and bread are baked on the premises
