It’s hard to believe that after only four years we have outgrown a bakery that seemed so big in comparison to the little home kitchen we used to work in. It was a big step to move from our home to a business premises, and now we are taking the next big step.

When we moved into our Montague Gardens Bakery there were only 6 of us. Over the years we have grown, adding valuable members to our “bakery family” and today our family has grown to 18 and we are bursting at the seams in our current bakery.

It was clear we needed to find a new home and after a successful poll Milnerton/Tableview came out tops and so the hunt began for the perfect home. We looked at many options but the minute we walked into the Milpark premises we knew we had found the perfect home. Easily accessible off Koeberg Road it gave us the best of both worlds, a factory space to bake lots of yummy cakes from but also a retail element where you will be able to grab a cup of coffee and a cupcake. We will be part of an exiting redevelopment of Milpark and won’t divulge much more than to say it is going to be simply A-MA-ZING! The new premises is close to 500 sqm and will boast a trendy retail space, where you will still be able to smell the aroma of yummy cakes baking fresh in the oven. We will also have a cake tasting and consulting room where you will be able to sit and chat to our cake designers about the perfect show stopper at your next event. We have plenty of surprises in store for you at our new bakery and we cannot wait to welcome you into the new space in March 2017.

Of course none of this would have been possible without the amazing support we have received over the years from our customers, some of whom have become friends of ours and shared in our lives and ups and downs the last few years. We cannot begin to thank you enough, you have made our dreams come true.

Keep your eyes on our social media platforms as we share this journey and dream with you over the next few months.

Much Love

Tessa, George, Des & Annie
