Mince pie in November, I felt uneasy. I needn't have worried. Excellent tea, fab cortado coffee and delicious mince pie. Simple and perfect. R70 for two. Great value

I've always loved eating at Jason's, and when my brother came to visit, I decided to treat him to the best. The service was quick and everyone is always kind and smiling, but I go there solely for the food... Breakfast at Jason's is the best way to start the day!

I visit the hatch for coffee and take away treats, which are always delightful, every single time I pass their store - Definitely one of my favourites!

This place is always packed full of customers. Breakfast was delicious. Big fan of the quinoa salad. Flat white heaven.

Visited as this place as it was Cape Towns hyped bakery. But it turned out to be more try hard NYC bakery than delectable parisian pastries. If you do want a choice you have to be there early as there are still plenty of people out to try the hyped bacon croissant and cronut special - just doubt they come... More

My husband and I made the mission to be at Jason Bakery just after opening to get one of the coveted cranberry danishes. So excited we were that we hurriedly ordered multiple selections as take-aways for later, and did not think we needed to check the boxes when they arrived. We ordered coffees and breakfast. The coffees were good. It’s... More

Honestly, I don't understand why this place is so high up in the ratings. This is what drew us there but we could not recommend it to others. We visited the place at 10.30am only to find out that half the things on the menu were not available (they run out). This included ALL savory tarts and ALL muffins. So... More

Looking for a light breakfast or brunch, full of freshly baked pastries and excellent coffee? The Jason bakery is the place. From Almond croissants and little tarts to pigs in a blanket - it's fresh and local. You may have to wait for a table but it is worth it. On a rainy day it's even better with a blanket... More

On the smaller side, so gets busy quickly, but for good reason. Pastries (croissant cup in particular) are among the best I've ever had, breads are awesome across the board, and the sandwiches are creative and delicious. Great coffee too!

Came for bunch at about 11:30am, had some good red espresso and even better Egg Slutt(one of their menu items, its awesome trust me). The cafe has a very chilled vibe, one of those places you go and dont want to leave. I was quite disappointed that they didnt have 3 of the sweet treats we wanted to order from... More
