Dietary Requirement Enquiries

Do you offer eggless/gluten free cakes?
Our Research & Development Team are hard at work trying to come up with solutions that will satisfy all our customers with dietary specific requirements. In order for a product to be classified as egg or gluten-free it needs to be manufactured in a 100% egg or gluten-free production facility, so as to not have any cross-contamination of any kind.

For our business to be able to achieve this, a lot has to be taken into consideration. However, we are aware of the demand and hope to be able to offer you all something soon!

Do you offer vegan/vegetarian?
Kindly note that none of our cakes are vegan/vegetarian as all our products contain eggs and cow’s milk. However, lacto-ovo vegetarians are able to enjoy many of our delights that do not contain any gelatine. Please click on the link to view our product range and click on your favourite cake to view the ingredients used www.chateaugateaux.co.za/patisserie
Do you offer low carb/banting cakes?
Kindly note that none of our cakes are banting friendly. Our Research & Development Team are hard at work trying to come up with solutions that will satisfy all our customers with dietary specific requirements.

Customised/Personalised Cakes

Do you offer customised cakes?
Kindly note that we do not make customised cakes or desserts in our production facility as we currently are unable to meet individual customisation requests.

It is possible, however, to purchase our large and medium cakes and customise or tier them with toppings of your choice or purchase our ‘Happy Birthday’ disk to personalise the cake. We hope that this will inspire you to add your own flair to your cakes in order to accommodate the theme of your birthday!

Loyalty App

How the Loyalty App works
The loyalty app works as follows:

  • Loyalty app points are separated into hot drink points and cake points
  • Points are earned for every hot drink and every 24cm cake purchase made; provided you scan your earn code instore
  • Once your points reach a total of 10 for hot beverages, they are converted to a hot drink & cake slice reward. This reward allows you to enjoy any hot beverage as well as a cake slice/individual gateau or pastry of your choice
  • Once your points reach a total of 10 for 24cm cake purchases, they are converted into a 24cm cake reward. This reward allows you to enjoy any 24cm cake of your choice
  • Should you have any issues with scanning your code on any occasion instore, please leave your details with the shop attendant and they will facilitate the process of having your points added manually
  • Currently, points can only be earned on hot drink purchases as well as 24cm cakes and no other items instore. We do hope to add more items in future where our app will have more functionality which can in turn, help us provide a better loyalty app program to our consumers
  • Points can be earned on online purchases of 24cm cake and 6 packs, however, rewards cannot be redeemed online.
