Since it opened a few months ago, Nonny’s Bakery and Café has become a lovely little eating spot. The café is situated just a few metres along on the right hand side once you’ve turned into the main entrance to the Masiphumelele township on the Fish Hoek-Kommetjie Road.  If you’re in the area, it’s an ideal place to stop en route to Cape Point or the penguins.

Nonny serves both light refreshments (including a delicious range of freshly baked cakes and muffins) and tasty lunch dishes such as pies, stews with rice or pap, toasted sandwiches, burgers. For tour groups, she can do a more African style lunch, including township delicacies such as pap and chakalaka! Nonny’s been getting great feedback from tour groups visiting the township and takes a great deal of pride in sharing her story and local cuisine.

Nonny’s Bakery has a lovely garden area where customers can sit in the shade of a small pergola and surrounded by a few plants, sadly often a rarity in the township. It really is a very pleasant and safe space to stop and Nonny’s food is very good, and at reasonable prices. Nonny is fully registered with the City of Cape Town and the café complies with all their hygiene requirements

Please feel free to call Nonny directly to book a lunch, or just pop in if you are passing by. Introduce yourself and she’d be happy to tell you about some of the previous lunches she has provided for visitors to the township.

About masicorpblog

MASICORP provides funding for education, and investment in enterprise so that the people of Masiphumelele - a township near Cape Town in South Africa - can escape from poverty. Mission MASICORP has over 12 years’ experience working in the township. Our approach has been to ask the community where and how they need support and, from this, we know the residents want a hand-up not a handout. We know that they see education as the route out of poverty. We know they will work hard to achieve success – and we see their hard work every day in our education projects and programs. Education is what we do: we built a library and education resource centre where over 20 programs are available free to residents; we have an important project to help improve education in the 30+ township crèches; we have a highly successful university bursary program and we work with and in the township’s primary and high schools. Our education programs extend to business enterprise, where we train and develop budding entrepreneurs, and provide training to help people find jobs. Description In Masiphumelele most people live in shacks. Six families or more share one water tap and toilet facility. Roughly 70% have no regular work.Even for those with work, incomes are very low and many manage on less than $2/day for food. The township suffers from poverty-related health issues: more than 20 % of residents are HIV/AIDS positive and the number of tuberculosis victims has increased in recent years. Life expectancy is under 50 years. Some might say there is little hope but, fortunately, these people have plenty of spirit, dignity and determination.
