Jason Bakery, Greenpoint
83 Main Rd
Cape Town, WC 8051
The legendary Bree Street Bakery lives on, never fear, but the new Jason Bakery in Greenpoint is a damn fine addition to the family.
Christopher and the rest of the team looked after us in a big way when we popped in after the lunch rush. Their 'Salvador' Nicaraguan coffee was smooth and delicious and the lunch options were ever so tasty, not your average sandwich, that's for sure. We tried the Bap (pictured below) and the Toasted Cheese and Slow roasted Tomato, because I'm a sucker for a well-executed grilled cheese sarmie. They did not disappoint. We also snuck in a little beetroot and ginger flat white for dessert as I didn't have space for any of the spectacular(and famous) pastries on offer. It hit the spot and left me feeling perky even though I was so full from eating all that gorgeous bread.
