We love to go here. Every day freshly baked cakes pastries. My absolute favourite is the eclairs. O yes I must put af least 50 caracters here... The danish pastries are also delicious. I hope I made it to 50 now.

a wonderful little cafe, with excellent little cakes and pastries. my favourite place for breakfast in simon's town, point none. don't miss their delicious 'pear and frangipane' pastry with a good chococcino :) but any pastry at Sweetest Thing is seriously good.
there's plenty of locals at this cafe, and they have a small inner courtyard, close to the kitchen but away from the street, that is just perfect for relaxing and reading.
they have some good veggie pies too, for a takeaway lunch on the way to cape point, but i'd rather suggest you to have a fantastic brekkie here at Sweetest Thing and then stop for a butter tea and a good vegan dinner at another lovely place, Sophea's Tibetan Teahouse, on the other end of the main road, closer to Boulder beach and the golf club.

We had some smoothies there while waiting to go on a tour, it was really nice so we returned later for lunch. I tried the Hamburger with sweet potato chips and my husband had the Chicken burger with a pesto sauce and a side salad. The food were delicious and made with fresh ingredients.
The portion sizes was just enough for a light lunch.
We ordered espresso's that was very good.
They have a lot of sweet temptations on the menu as well as home baked pies and quiche.

We LOVE getting treats from The Sweetest Thing!
BUT we prefer to take away as not much effort has gone into creating a good atmosphere inside the cafe - Would be great to see them do something stylish and fun with the decor..

Nice morning stop for some sweet pastries. Nice selection of goodies and of course the children loved it because it was sweet. Coffee was ok.
