You’ll find Sorbetiere just a stone’s throw from the Mother City in the ever-trendy Woodstock. Headed by Chef Béran, Sorbetiere’s selections of sorbets and ice creams reflect the seasons. And they make the most of natural and locally sourced ingredients. With fine craftsmanship and a dash of fearless experimentation, this little gem of a shop will undoubtedly make a sorbet lover out of you.
Flavours abound at Sorbetiere
Although there is a wide range of options that will suit any palate, it was really the vegan sorbet that stole the show. It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to taste unusual, exciting combinations like this. You’ll find gin and tonic, melon and basil, pawpaw and ginger, strawberry and pepper, and even fig and Pinotage. Truth be told, these sorbets can rival ice cream any day.
Cool off for summer
There are few places operating on this scale that are willing to take risks with unusual flavours and combinations. But if you’re adventurous at heart, this could be just the treat for you. And, with the worsening drought in Cape Town and fewer ways to stay cool this summer, Sorbetiere could be one of the small miracles left in Cape Town. You can find it at Side Street Studios, 48 Albert Street, Woodstock.
For those who don’t want to brave the traffic of Cape Town for a scoop of sorbet, these sweet treats are available to purchase in bulk and can even be delivered through UberEATS.
