Without cake, birthdays would be spent crying, dessert menus would be incomplete and food fights would be much less satisfying. Ensure celebrations, cake-in-face moments and everyday life remains sweet with today’s Groupon: Pay R21 for a slice of cake and a cappuccino at Toast Deli.
Known to send the average human into sparkly, wide-eyed wonder, put an icing-filled smile on a face and induce random bouts of glee; cake could more appropriately be termed the eighth wonder of the world. Not since the creation of the first light bulb has an invention brightened up a day in an instantaneous flash of brilliance. When combined with the lifeboat-in-a-cup known as the cappuccino, the untied force of the two can spark a tea-time treat that would make Greek gods green with envy.
Now take the world’s favourite couple – coffee and cake – and couple them with the charming setting of the Toast Deli and you have a Hollywood romance of old-school Casablanca proportions. With lovely modern décor coupled with hints of wicker hearts and understated elegance, the coffee shop that doubles as a home décor store and clothing shop is the perfect stop to make for lovely light lunch or a terrific tea-time snack.
Sweet fact: In early 19th century, a crook called the “The Red-Velvet Bandit” made headlines when he went on an epic cake stealing spree in White Chapel, London. Stealing everything from children’s birthday cakes to the church’s chocolate brownies, The Red Velvet Bandit was never caught and remains White Chapel’s most notorious party-pooper after Jack the Ripper.
