Tessa’s Bakery – Making Good Old Favourites Great Again


Tired of mass-produced, impersonal, and taste-depleted baking, Tessa’s Bakery – a trendy Cakery in Milnerton, Cape Town – has taken a stand, whisk in hand. Butter, cream, sugar and good old-fashioned quality goods fill each bowl and make Tessa’s cakes the talk of the town.


Tessa’s Bakery started in Tessa’s home kitchen 25 years ago and to this day, remains a family business. The first store opened in Montague Gardens in 2012. Since then, they’ve grown from supplying coffee shops to launching their very own online store, which supplies customers across the Western Cape with delicious cakes, cupcakes and quiches.

Having started off with just 3 employees, the team is now 20-cake-enthusiasts strong. The Tessa’s culture is one of family, creativity and friendship within the business – and their zest for life and passion for baking comes through in each and every cake.

Today, the bakery is homed in Milpark, Milnerton, where they boast a trendy store front that showcases delectable drip cakes, decadent cupcakes and cake slices as well as authentic Greek delicacies. And for the coffee lovers, they also have a barista who makes some pretty awesome Origin coffee.

At Tessa’s you’ll find old favourites to transport you back to your childhood. Forget flavourless, mass-produced cakes, and say hello to the real deal: chocolate caramel cake, red velvet cake, carrot cake, cheesecake and peppermint crisp tarts. Mouthwatering masterpieces are made daily from the finest and freshest ingredients.

Tessa’s are also known for their over-the-top celebration cakes that are not only showstoppers, but taste truly scrumptious.
