The Cassis Story

The rich, vibrant and trendy café culture that we are so familiar with today, first became popular more than a century ago in La Belle Époque Paris…

In the year 1900, a café called Lenôtre was established for the World Fair in the heart of the renowned Champs-Elysées in Paris, facing the Grand Palace where the exhibition was held. Imagined as a modern hub of creativity in the form of contemporary design coupled with gourmet cuisine, Café Lenôtre represented the pinnacle of gastronomical alchemy and cultural refinement.

CASSIS Pâtisserie et Boulangerie was founded in Cape Town with the same principles of on-trend and seasonal cuisine made with the freshest, highest quality traditional French ingredients, served in an opulent yet relaxed café environment surrounded by contemporary design and art. CASSIS serves more than appetising light meals, freshly baked bread and scrumptious cakes and desserts: we offer our patrons an enriching pause in their busy modern lifestyle. Our passion is to relive the Belle Époque, every day, in the Mother City…

CASSIS – a touch of Paris, in the heart of Cape Town.
