What Is A Cronut?

This is a delicious croissant-meets-donut pastry delight. It is shaped like a normal donut, but made with croissant dough. The hype and origin of this yummy treat came from New York City.

The cronut is available in many forms; some have fillings, some are glazed and some are given a hug of yummy flavours and additions for garnish.

What Is A Donut?

A donut, or doughnut, is a ring-shaped, deep fried pastry. It can be served plain, sweet or dressed with other ingredients.

Babette's Bread 

Let me tell you a little story... once upon a time in a world filled with flour lived a Law graduate who became obsessed with baking bread. All the butter, yeast and mixing through the dough took her to a place called the US of A to explore what she loved under the guidance of a French baker. She grew up to become a bread artist, and her name was Barbette. She came back to Johannesburg and opened her own world of scrumptiousness, which is one of the bread spots that we have fallen in love with. Babette's Bread has one of the best breads we have tasted and her sourdough bread will have you saying feta, rocket and sun dried tomatoes.

Junipa's Bistro

Want to talk artisan, well Junipa's Bistro is thee bread spot you must visit. Situated in the ever so modern burbs of Bryanston, the atmosphere is absolutely great. This spot also has freshly brewed coffee to compliment their oh so yummy freshly baked breads that will have you eating out of the palm of Junipa's (pun definitely intended). Whether you want bread to go or to sit down at the bistro, you surely won't be disappointed. I'm quite the matchmaker so I'd pair their goodies with a good pulled chicken and cheese.


If anything, I think we have established that Fournos is one of the franchises that actually make some of the best breads around. They have tons of tummy hugging fresh bakes that will have you warm inside and filled with nostalgic thoughts. Believe me when I say, you will be spoiled for choice - just don't buy the whole shop unless the plan is to get a franchise. The passion they have for baking and serving good food shines through, you cannot deny yourself of such goodness.

What a mouthful? Literally...last words. Bread, Butter (not margarine), chicken, cucumber and mayo! That is my weakness. Do you know of any other awesome bread spots in the city? Let us know about them!
