I try so hard to be good. And by good, I mean cut down on sugary treats. But YOLO, right…? And with all that there is on offer at Sweet Cillie’s Cakery, cheat days are totally allowed!

So, being a Southern Suburb’er (is that a thing?) I was beyond excited when I noticed the new sweet kid on the block not too far from home and so close to a mall that we spend lots of time at. It would obviously make sense to support a gorgeous little venue in the ‘hood.

Pop in at Sweet Cillie’s Cakery in Tokai for a decadent sweet or savoury treat!

When I received an invitation from the good folk at Fusion Design to attend a High Tea launch, I started planning my afternoon tea outfit immediately. Ok, it wasn’t that extreme, but there was TONS of excitement leading up to the day, which incidentally coincided with the #RoyalWedding of Prince Harry and Meghan! How fitting!


Situated just opposite the Blue Route Mall in Tokai, there is plenty of safe parking if you’re headed out that way – you can’t miss their gorgeous grey and pink building. When we arrived, the lovely owner and baker, Cilla De Jonge, and her staff were decking out a decadent table of sweet and savoury treats for the High Tea guests. From savoury cucumber sandwiches that would make the Queen proud, to delicious profiteroles which were my absolute favourite (besides the lemon meringues, the brownies, the cheesecakes… Oh, who am I kidding! They were ALL my faves!)

These Cheesecakes were so so good…


Before we enjoyed our High Tea, we were treated to a lovely Carmien Tea and chocolate tasting experience. And what a delightful experience it was! The teas were perfectly paired with bite-sized chocolates which brought out the subtle flavours of the teas so well. If you ever find yourself in Citrusdal, you absolutely have to pop in at Hebron Restaurant to enjoy the Carmien Tea pairings and enjoy the various tasting experiences they have on offer there.

The teas are also available to purchase at Sweet Cillie’s if you can’t wait that long to take a trip out to the countryside!

The most amazing attention to detail… Love this little fork!

The delightful spread is only R245 per person and kids 12 and under pay only R185. This also includes unlimited coffee/tea.

Sweet Cillie’s will definitely be seeing me again, and with the availability of FREE WIFI I foresee a few business meetings, over a cuppa and something sweet, taking place here too!
