My Sugar chocolate and coffee bar.

It may have taken a while to get to my mouth, but I found the best doughnut cafe in town, My Sugar chocolate and coffee bar. Owned by Chef Kaylah and Asher, this cosy cafe is located in the heart of Sea Point. I met up with 3 of my friends as I’ve been wanting to try their doughnuts for so long. Talk about all things chocolate, the decor, the walls, the treats are all chocolate inspired! Its what I imagine chocolate, doughnut and coffee heaven to be. The three essentials in life.

Although My Sugar chocolate and coffee bar specialises in chocolate, they are well known for their doughnuts. The doughnuts or chocolate is paired with a house blend coffee made by My Sugar. And let me tell you, the coffee is not for the faint hearted. It will give you a caffeine boost, which is needed after the sugary treats.

My doughnut of choice: milk chocolate ganache with a caramelised coconut and caramel topping from My Sugar chocolate and coffee bar.

What a treat! The milk ganache doughnut has a sweet aroma and a lovely yeasty flavour. The doughnuts (without the toppings and frosting) doesn’t have an oily smell or taste. It is soft inside with a slightly crispy outside. And when it comes to the toppings, its not overwhelmingly sweet and it complements the flavour of the doughnuts. The taste of the doughnuts leaves you wanting more but I could only finish half of my doughnut as I had eaten lunch beforehand. The cost of the doughnuts at My Sugar chocolate and coffee bar are R35 each.

They have a wide variety of doughnuts, catering for every need. Some of the doughnuts at My Sugar chocolate and coffee bar include:

                –  Caramelised white chocolate with a butterscotch popcorn and crunchy salted caramel pearls topping.

– Crème brûlée: the center is filled with vanilla bean custard and coated in caramel (it has the hard crack on top just like a Crème brûlée dessert).

 – Lemon meringue: with a topping of torched meringue.

The chocolate and coffee bar is very small inside, so its best to go as early as you can to secure a seat and enjoy the delicious treats.
