Review: Sweet Cillies Cakery, Tokai – Cape Town

I was privileged to receive an invitation to the Inaugural High Tea at Sweet Cillies a little while ago and, while I meant to post about it, life got in the way and, excuses aside, here we are.

At the time of the launch, 3 dates were planned for the once a month High Tea, with the next one just around the corner on 18 August. According to their latest Facebook post, there are a few spaces available, but you will have to move quickly! Check it out over here.

It’s all in the details

So, without any further delay, let me tell you about all the deliciousness. We were super spoiled guinea pigs on the day of the launch, where Cilla was keeping a careful eye on which items were devoured the fastest, and which items were a bit slower off the mark. With a comprehensive range of both savoury and sweet, you definitely won’t go hungry with this buffet, and it makes it a wallet friendly treat at R245 per person, while children 12 and under pay R185.

My favourite thing about the high tea, aside from all the profiteroles you could eat, was the size of the portions. While dainty delights have their place, I like actually having more than just one bite of something yummy. But, maybe that’s just me. The stand out treats include the lightest and most delectable quiches and mouth watering mini pies on the savoury side, with the brownies and cheesecake knocking my socks off when it came to the sweeter perspective.

Hi! Welcome to our family travel blog. We hope you enjoy the content we share here. We tried the nomad life in 2016 and, while we loved exploring 7 of the 9 regions in South Africa, we found it tough. We are back in Cape Town and enjoy going on mini adventures as a family. Our kids will soon be 11 and 14 years old, and they love the outdoors. Anton is a stay at home dad and helps me to home school the kids, while I hold down a job and find time to write. One day when the kids are older and have settled into their own lives, we plan to explore the rest of South Africa in a 4x4, so that we can also visit Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. Contact us for unique, family-friendly content about Cape Town, most of South Africa and what we have learned from our travels so far. You are most welcome to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@tazzdiscovers) to see what we share on a day to day basis. We look forward to working with you.
