Charly's Bakery has been around for 31 years and we're very grateful that we've become an institution in Cape Town.Jacqui Biess - Charly's Bakery
We're a place where you can come...we've taken our Victorian building and decorated it like a cake...our cakes are unique...it's a place where Capetonians like to bring their visitors to to show off.Jacqui Biess - Charly's Bakery
The last 63 days have been one of the most incredible learning experiences of my entire life...we expected three weeks, possibly five weeks of lockdown...luckily I watched what was happening worldwide, so I got hold of the bank, asked for a payment holiday on our bond and started preparing papers for employees for UIF.Jacqui Biess - Charly's Bakery
