Located on the corner of Bree and Bloem street in the Cape Town CBD, is the hugely popular Jason’s Bakery. What differentiates Jason’s Bakery from many of the other eateries in the area, is the sheer creativity of @captainbreadza, always keeping his customers on the tips of their toes with the menu.
One of the best days to make a leisurely visit to Jason’s is on Saturday mornings to grab one of the day’s limited doughssant creations (Jason’s take on the cronut). Saturdays are the only days you can experience this delicious delight and my advice is to get there EARLY, there’s always a queue and the doughssants may sell out within two hours. Keep an eye on the bakery’s social media accounts where @captainbreadza will let you know the flavour of the day. When I visited it was a delicious cranberry and white chocolate mousse creation.
The serve deluxe coffee, the standard a double-shot, to be gulped down with a peanut butter filled croissant wrapped with bacon and drizzled with honey. The bakery has an ever changing inventory and a quick ‘sushi sandwich’ or ‘Chuck Norris’ sandwich can hit the spot for a quick lunch on any given day.
If you plan on going in peak time (7-9am; 11h30-13pm) be prepared to be put on the waiting list for a table. It’s totally worth the wait.
