Jason Bakery’s “go somewhere else” opening hours

Jason Bakery's opening hours - go somewhere else
No really, they aren't open on Sundays or public holidays. Which is a real shame for those of us who don't work in the city. Totally understandable though Jason... you and your staff also need a break.

Jason Bakery – they love real breal

I've been meaning to visit Jason Bakery for a while now. Eventually the day came, so here's a quick no-frills review:

There isn't a lot of seating, but the bar chairs and tables attached to the outside pillars are actually reasonably comfortable. It was actually genius of them to small half-round tables to the pillars! The croissants are tasty, but the croissant-and-egg breakfast isn't much to write home about (and I was left feeling hungry). Their coffee isn't as good as Origin's, but it's not bad at all (I have a penchant for Origin's flat whites). The staff are friendly and efficient. I'd visit Jason Bakery again, and advise you to do so also! :)

No sleighs on the beach, Santa!

No slays on the beach Santa!
Santa's taking his post-Christmas holiday in Cape Town this year! I chatted to him for a while after this incident - apparently his argument was that there were no signs indicating that slays weren't allowed on the beach. A fair point, I guess.

Surfing Glen Beach

Surfing Glen Beach
I'm no surfer, but it seemed like the waves at Glen Beach, next to Camps Bay Beach, were large enough to surf, but not too large to terrify newbies learning to ride a wave. You'd definitely need a wet suit on this coast, but the conditions at Glen Beach looked pretty good for those learning.

I met these two women, visitors from the Netherlands, on Glen Beach. They seemed to have captured the firm attention of the small crew of guys fresh from their early-evening surfing. :)
