Home of #TheCakePeople Part Two
Welcome back Cake Lover! We are excited to share the rest of the story of Durban and Château Gâteaux with you. It is all about our gorgeous outlets and what to do in the area…enjoy.
Our Divine Durban Stores:
Our first Durban outlet opened in Morningside on the Berea – a ridge with cool breezes and very cool views over the city of Durban to the ocean. Berea is also home to the beautiful Botanic Gardens. You can go there anytime, but once a month on a Saturday and Sunday you can get a ticket to “Music at the Botanic Gardens”. Pack a picnic, pop into our Morningside shop and pick up a box of mini cakes and cheesecakes to add to your picnic hamper. Relax in the Gardens and enjoy listening to jazz, alternative rock and anything in between to escape from the sultry Durban heat and your busy life.
Set up a date with your girlfriend, boyfriend, best friend, or lovely spouse, and visit our fresh and vibrant outlet at the Pavilion Shopping Centre in Westville. We have a range of delicious coffees – from a Frappe to an Americano – and a difficult choice for you to make from our beautiful cake display. No matter what you choose, however, we guarantee it will be super delicious and that you will make lasting memories while bonding with your date. By the way, clever lady, don’t forget to take something home from our frozen range, which you can pop into the freezer for your next celebration.
Slightly north of Durban city, fun family outings are waiting for you. Visit the Litchi Orchard Farmer’s Market held every second Saturday, go snorkelling in Ballito, indulge in safe swimming at lovely Thompson’s Beach or the Ballito Tidal Pool. ou know what to do, don’t you, Mom? Picnic time again, we have three convenient Château Gâteaux stores for you to visit - Ballito, Durban North or the Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga. Top Tip: When shopping at a Château Gâteaux store, take a cool bag with freezer blocks with you, so your special treats stay cool and fresh until picnic time.
Many of us go to the South Coast of Natal for a holiday as self-catering units have great accommodation for a fabulous time away with the family. And there is a Château Gâteaux outlet in the Galleria Mall in Amanzimtoti – Toti to most of us – to stock up with desserts and pastries for evening treats.
This stretch of coast will keep anyone super busy as there is much to do. Several Nature Reserves – Vernon Crooks, Oribi Gorge, TC Robertson and more. Farms to visit – Butterfly Valley, Riverbend Crocodile Farm and Pure Venom (eeek)!! The KwaXolo Caves featuring San rock art sounds like a highlight to us.
You will delve deeper when planning a visit to this beautiful and entertaining part of South Africa dear reader. Just remember that your hosts, Château Gâteaux, will welcome you with open doors and exceptional cakes when you arrive.
Château Gâteaux, making magical moments since 1997.
