There are two types of people in this world. Those who have a sweet tooth and those who don’t. Luckily, for purposes of this blog post, I am the former. I have the sweetest tooth of all sweet tooth people – I could eat ice cream for breakfast, a chocolate brownie for lunch and a bag of jelly beans for dinner.

I have put together a list of all the places in and around Johannesburg I like going when the sweet tooth craving strikes. Be it ice cream, doughnuts or the best dessert you’ll ever have in your life, you’re in for a treat …


Where? Cafe Del Sol (all three Cafe Del Sol have this on the menu)

Why? The best pavolva you will ever eat. In your life!

Eclairs (and other French pastries)

Where? Paul, Melrose Arch

Why? The closest you’ll get to eating pastries in France.

Address: Corner High Street and Crescent Drive, Melrose Arch, Sandton

Tel: 010 0203002

Ice-cream sandwiches

Where? Crumbs & Cream

Why? Biscuit, ice-cream, biscuit and some delicious toppings. Need I say more?


Where? Paul’s Homemade Ice-Cream

Why? This is the best ice-cream you will ever have, in your life! The flavour combos are beyond anyones wildest dreams. Think roasted banana and nutella. Or roasted coconut. The list goes on, so take a look at the website:

Molten Chocolate Praline Pudding

Where? Jamie’s Italian

Why? Molten. Chocolate. Praline. Enough said!

Macaroons, pastries and little tarts

Where? Patachou Patisserie

Why? Just look at this photo above.

Doughnuts and Coffee

Where? Krispy Kreme

Why? The taste, the variety and the coffee are three of my favourite things about Krispy Kreme.


Where? Tasha’s Hyde Park

Why? Pistachio flavour gelato just like in Italy.
