ABOUT

So Whipped, have a Mmmmoment

The Moments we create. We don’t just wait for them, we go looking for them, we inspire them, encourage them, we become them. So Whipped is about the cream on top of your coffee, the icing on the cupcake, the person who is oh so in love they would do anything. So Whipped is the favourite part of your day,  puddle jumping, the first sip of a cold drink on a hot summers day or snuggling with someone you love under a blanket with a warm cup of hot chocolate on a cold winters night. That kiss that makes you lose your breath and your toes curl. Those contented moments that we have, where we think to ourselves, life is well!!!

SUSTAINABILITY
Our beautiful Cafe is 98% recycled, reused, reclaimed and green. The only items that we couldn’t go green with was our sign board and our tap.

 GOOD FOOD
We love using whole foods, real eggs and LOADS of butter in our baking.

GREAT COFFEE
We are passionate about good coffee, currently pouring Science of Coffee – Phi Blend. These high quality beans are sourced directly from Central America and blended with two natural East African coffee beans. Science Of Coffee are local micro-roasters (North Coast, Kwa-Zulu Natal) who work directly with the farmers to help improve their crops. So Whipped receives these expertly roasted coffee beans weekly, ensuring consistently fresh coffee.

The Phi Blend works beautifully in a number of brewing methods, but particularly espresso based drinks. We recommend a single Cappuccino, or for something a little stronger, but silky smooth, a double shot Flat White.

Flavour Notes: Oak, Spiced chocolate and Syrah.

All So Whipped baristas have completed our training course. They are continually being critiqued on their barista skills and attend ongoing training workshops. We ensure a clean espresso machine and properly dialed in grinder settings every day.

We hope you taste the love in every cup.

TESTIMONIALS

 

You actually cannot believe the taste sensation satisfaction until you’ve tasted So Whipped’s baking. It’s OUTSTANDING! And then just as you think you’ve tasted the best, they amaze you again. Master Bakers personified! – Meredith Christie

My happy place. Love your Banting chocolate cake (bomb) with whipped cream! And delicious decaf cappuccinos. Appreciated today how Candice went to her car to fetch her I phone charger for my phone that was on its last legs. Honorable and kind hearted, a gift from God, is the basis of this coffee and cake shop. Thanks for the friendly staff always. – Taryn Edge

I stumbled upon this place while walking through Gateway and I thought they had a witty name so I figured I should give them a go – and OHMYGOSH was I right to do so. They have the most incredible cupcakes in the world, and I am a cupcake connoisseur, trust me. My personal favourites are the red velvet and the belgian chocolate but they have so much more to offer, all sorts of cakes and muffins and they make a mean cronut ( if you see it, you will want to shove it in your face). Plus, the owner Candice is super nice and she comes for chats sometimes. I also thought it was cute that they had a separate children’s play area, seemed useful for busy mommies. Oh, and my boyfriend thought their coffee is great but I haven’t personally had a taste though. But he is to be trusted haha. All in all a great experience for me, not so great for my total BMI. Will be back every chance I get.Theodora V (Bucharest Romania – Trip Advisor)
