Fun food to try on your next cheat day

FOOD  |  APR 11, 2019


Cheat days are a saving grace for dieters around the world. For one day every once in a while, break the confines of your meal plan to enjoy the sweeter side of life. What better way to say “I love my body” than to fill it with sweet treats that are so worth celebrating. Ditch the diet with some of Canal Walk favourite bakeries and cafés.


Kick off your cheat day with one of the most crowd-pleasing brands to have graced the shores of the mother city. Cinnabon is certainly on a roll when it comes to satisfying a sweet-tooth. If you haven’t tried their menu of cinnamon rolls, we urge you to give in. Like, yesterday! This bakery, now found across the country, specialises in a multitude of cinnamon based treats that are so easy to fall in love with.

We understand how difficult it is to select just one item. But believe us when we say you’ll be sweeter than ever before after having one of their cinnamon rolls. Oozing with sugar, flavour, and dripping in cream cheese frosting, you might not make it through more than one. If your sweetness quota isn’t as far-stretched as a kid in a candy store, their menu offers bite-sized treats that are sure to make you weak at the knees. Enjoy their freshly baked caramel glazed Cinnabons, Cinnabon Stix, or Caramel Pecan BonBites. And if that’s just too much of a mouthful, they also offer hot drinks, iced coffee, and speciality frozen Chillatas.

The Donut Centre

There are so many eateries in Cape Town that can easily entice you to break your diet plan, however, if you’re looking for somewhere that bakes goods both sweet and simple, then make a stop at The Donut Centre. Walking past this store is sure to grab your attention with the aroma of freshly-baked confections. Treat yourself to more than just a shopping spree and celebrate your cheat day with their range of doughnuts, muffins, giant cookies, and pancakes.

You don’t have to destroy your diet at The Donut Centre. With something for everyone, you can get yourself a classic cinnamon doughnut, a fresh croissant or even a plate of pancakes at the most affordable prices. Or you can take it the extra, mouth-watering mile by getting one of their crisp chocolate, caramel, or vanilla frosted doughnuts. In fact, you can even enjoy flavourful additions to your selection with sweets and treats such as Astros, nuts, or sprinkles. The Donut Centre produces only the best confectionary products that are of the highest quality standards. Their menu of goods is sure to drive you glazy!

Cheat day is a widely celebrated event to declare a day free from strict meal plans and negative body image. Appreciate your body and give it the love it deserves with pancakes, ice-cream, and delicious confections from a few of our featured Canal Walk Stores.
