Local produce is the cornerstone of our bakery — Amongst our ingredients, flour is, of course, central, and understanding its journey is pivotal in creating exceptional artisanal sourdough breads and pastries.
Our core value is knowledge therefore we chat with the farmers that farm our wheat and speak to the millers that mill our grains. We take the time to understand all of these little processes, that began from a sprouting plant.
With that knowledge behind us, we use our own hands to craft small batches of naturally-leavened breads and pastries for your delight. We love sharing this with you, our community. And through your support, we, in turn, take care of you..
Our shop is located at No 5 The Promenade in Hout Bay.
We are open WEDNESDAY - SATURDAY

We have 2 deliveries, so please take note:

For Hout Bay and surrounds, our breads will soon be available on a monthly 'standing order' basis, for collection from our shop during opening hours
South Yeaster Bakery is an artisanal sourdough bakery run by brother & sister team, Brode and Amber. Often referred to as 'humble beginnings', Brode and Amber call it 'flowing with the times' allowing them to mould their decisions and steer them towards organically growing the bakery into the business they envisioned.
Both qualified chefs, they embarked on their respective journeys with plans on entering different areas of the international culinary world. The French & German winters were too cold for Brode, and the UAE was too hot for Amber, so they found themselves back on home soil, in windy Cape Town. And decided to venture into what they knew best together.
Finding themselves caught in a 'lockdown', they set to work, testing, researching, sampling a lot and have grown into what they are today...a dirty bread cult.
