How many bakers can say they have a cult following? Jason Lilley has built up a bit of a rock-star reputation for the croissants he serves up at his namesake Bree Street café. Every Saturday morning, Capetonians log into Instagram to see what his latest “doughssant” is. He constantly experiments with flavors for his answer to the cronut, which sells out within hours. Recent combinations include coconut macaroon with salted caramel, strawberry, and chocolate-chip cookie; Earl Grey with lavender; and Belgian beer with pretzel. Something else Lilley is serious about: good coffee. Whatever you do, don’t ask for a cappuccino—it’s all about the flat white here.
