Pâtisserie that looks as good as it tastes.
Cape Town locals who have spent some time on Bree Street will remember the well-loved bakery and coffee hotspot, SMAK Delicatessen. After closing shop last year due to Covid-19 Katia Scherf, the eatery’s founder, spent her days baking and rediscovering her passion for pâtisserie.
Katia, who interned at The Test Kitchen and trained at Prue Leith Culinary Institute and École Nationale Supérieure de Pâtisserie (ENSP) in France, created Mixys, a new online pâtisserie and cake shop, as a passion project that has brought her love of baking to life.
“Our core belief is that it doesn’t matter how pretty the product looks, it’s about how great it tastes,” says Katia, so you’ll only find the best quality treats here. Everything is available on the Mixys website – from Smak’s signature salted-butter-caramel baked cheesecake and oat crunchies to classic sponge cakes.
Other indulgences include chocolate brownies, cupcakes, cookies (the triple chocolate ones are the stuff of dreams), and vegan treats including a super-moreish banana bread that goes spectacularly well with a cup of tea.
Special occasion? This is also your one-stop shop for cakes and bakes for any celebration (with the option to add special toppers and decorations). Chat to Katia and design the cake of your dreams!
