We stopped at The Sweetest Thing after having lunch nearby just to have some coffees with cakes, which were always delicious.

We rushed in an hour before closing time, so not much of a selection left. Managed to have a wonderful hot chocolate and cake though. The place is a tad tired looking, but worth a visit for the food. So if we are in the area again and need to feed our sweet tooth we will definitely be visiting The Sweetest Thing.

'The Sweetest Thing' provides many delights: delicious and wholesome pies - the chicken pies bursting with real chicken and either vegetables or blue cheese. The cakes score high both on a decorative (scrumptious looking) and functional (delicious tasting) level. Very enjoyable.

We often drive thru to Simonstown specifically to enjoy the most delicious cake. Their pies too are fabulous. In fact everything they bake is excellent. Sadly though they've no idea about service and the place is rather tired looking. Hence we occupy one of the two tables on the pavement in the sun....bliss! And we always take something home for later.

Gorgeous cakes. What more can one say? For many friends, The Sweetest Thing is now top of their visit list for cakes when they come to stay.
