Balm Balm and Spiezia at Manna Cafe

I like to think that I already know of/ have been to most of Jozi’s finest spots for cake ūüôā
I was delighted to come across another one last weekend. It’s called Manna Cafe and it’s in Fourways- corner Monte Casino Boulevard and William Nicol. There’s also a nursery and a church in the centre if you find yourself getting a bit lost.

Love Green, who distribute Balm Balm and Spiezia, both organic skincare products, hosted a high tea where guests got to sample all the products and learn a bit more about them.
I had already tried out Balm Balm, read the¬†review here, so this post will focus on the awesomeness that was Manna Cafe ūüôā¬†

Comfort food and cakes, what more do you need?

¬†I loved the vibe at Manna. I didn’t get a chance to look at the food menu, but if the cakes were anything to go by, I’m sure the food is great!

The fireplace and couches create a warm and inviting atmosphere

The chocolate cake is easily one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve EVER tasted. It was even slightly warm as if it had just come out of the oven!
We also tasted the cheesecake and a red velvet cake which were VERY yummy.

Manna isn’t really the spot to go to if you want quiet time with someone. Because it is quite small, it gets really noisy. I guess it didn’t help that there were mainly women there when I went- a table of 10 ladies having a baby shower and then the BalmBalm girls!

I love when its apparent that the owners of an establishment have put their hearts into decorating it. Manna is filled with beautiful decor, like the gorgeous feature mirror that you can see¬†a little bit of in the below picture. I felt like I was in someone’s home.

Sampling the products was great. There is so much on offer from both Balm Balm and Spiezia and what’s great is that they are both organic and free of any unnatural ingredients.

Hope you all treat yourself to some cake this weekend!
