Your Home Away from Home

Your Home Away from Home

When you discuss love and comfort, the first place you think of is HOME. Home is where Mom and Dad are, your partner and loving children are, or your fur-baby with his wagging tail and welcoming bark. If you are extremely lucky, maybe home for you houses all these precious people and the pets in your life.  Home is where you can slop around in your slippers, put your feet up and have a cup of tea after a busy day (with a tasty piece of Swiss Carrot Cake on the side), and home is where you feel love and comfort the most.

Talking of feeling at home, all Château Gâteaux walk-in stores have trendy pavement or outdoor seating areas where you can indulge in some love and comfort from us – did you know that, apart from cake, this is one of our specialties? Why not pop by with a friend and order chilled frappés and Mini Passionate Lemon Cheesecakes for a fusion of friendship, deliciousness and TLC.

Café Culture is known as a ‘third place’ - a place of refuge where people can relax and enjoy the company of others. They are places where social needs are satisfied, where one can meet friends, colleagues, neighbours and even strangers. And they are places like Château Gâteaux where satisfaction is made sweeter with a slice of Fudge Picasso or a gooey, fudgy Boston Brownie.

A third place contrasts with the first place of home and the second place of work. Third places include cafes, pubs, local stores, bookshops, restaurants, pavements, etc. According to research, the best third places are locally owned, independent and small-scale. That is precisely what we are – all these descriptions mean that we provide our cake lovers with personal attention and the best-baked cakes in South Africa. Pavement Patisseries like ours bring benefits to urban life as they are meeting places for our diverse cultures, places where you can work, and add to the vibe of the centre or street where they exist. 

Visit us soon, connoisseur of Château Gâteaux cakes, we are the perfect third place for you to get together with any of your wide circle of buddies, colleagues or family members and be showered with love and comfort Château Gâteaux style.
