Mango Ginger Bakery and Coffee Shop is situated at 27 Lower Main Road in Observatory. Our philosophy on food is about health, nutrition and fabulous flavours. We use only organic flour, pure fats and organic fresh produce where possible. This very high standard of ingredients is assembled into decadent, delicious treats.
Mango Ginger is owner run and the friendly efficient staff are barista trained. The atmosphere is intimate and professional with our baked goods on display in a cabinet and fridge. The business was nominated in the Cape Talk / Nedbank Small Business Awards and achieved a place as finalist.
In the pre-dawn hours the baker produces a range of breads and pastries and our immensely popular wheat-free organic pies. A selection of biscuits, both wheat / gluten free, as well as naughty treats e.g. Pistachio Nut Shortbread. We open at 7.30am for coffee and pastries and start cooking breakfasts from 8.00am. Lunches are kept alive by the ever changing specials board, listing the soup and quiches of the day as well as main meals.
Examples of these include Potato Rosti with smoked salmon, herbed cream cheese and salad, Parmesan Chicken Strips on crostini with a cooked tomato salsa, pesto and garnished with rocket and olives; Wheat Free Crepes filled with lemon, artichoke chicken and garnished with freshly blanched asparagus. On cooler days a favourite is Lamb, Almond and Ginger Casserole with a side serving of short-grain organic brown rice.
Favourites on the menu include our Super Steak Sandwich and heavenly Lemon Tarts. There are many options for vegetarians and customers intolerant of wheat and gluten.
The kitchen remains busy with supply out, outside catering and lunch & tea platters. We also make celebration cakes to order. Mango Ginger now has a full liquor license.
Our customers feel our passion and love for the work we do.
