Stunning bakery with incredibly yummy treats. If you are in the area, definitely worth a visit but probably wouldn't go out of my way to go otherwise.

If I say a cake shop with a queue out the door I know I'm joining it. We had some of the best cakes everywhere, visit district 6 and then have a cake, it's not to be missed, they also have a great mural and table mountain view
