Gateaux Cafe + Dessert
Gateaux Cafe + Dessert is the passion project of Nermin Lotfi and Shahira Abdelaziz, two friends with a love of baking who were looking for a cafe that ticked all the boxes – open for coffee and dessert all day and into the evening, friendly to both adults and children, high level of service … the list goes on. Unable to find somewhere that offered all of these things, the friends decided to turn their dream into a reality, finding a quaint spot in leafy Hawthorne. Your eyes will be immediately drawn to the brightly coloured array of sweet delicacies that await your choice in the cabinet. Eclairs of every flavour (think salted caramel, pistachio, Nutella and more), mille feuille, fruit tarts, lemon meringues and more are amongst the vibrant temptations, sitting alongside flaky pastries, housemade sandwiches, quiches, muffins and cakes, and an ever-changing selection of Shlix ice-cream flavours.
