Belle’s Patisserie, the much-loved Johannesburg institution, is no stranger to the Best of Joburg Awards, having been named the ‘Best Patisserie’ in the city since 2013.


At last night’s glittering Best of Joburg Readers’ Choice Awards 2016 ceremony, Belle’s once again walked away with top accolades as ‘Best Patisserie’, ‘Best Coffee Shop’ and ‘Best Doughnut’.

Owner Linda Lipschitz comments, ‘To continuously receive such awards just cements the fact that we are doing something right; we’re nothing without our consumers, so to be recognised and praised by them through these Readers’ Choice awards is an honour. At Belle’s we continuously strive to raise the bar and this proves that we are!’


‘I absolutely love the red velvet cupcakes and cheesecake from Belle’s Patisserie. They’re always such a hit when I take them with me to dinner parties as well. I also love it that it has Banting-friendly and healthy desserts! All the taste with none of the guilt,’ says Cara-Lisa Sham, on the Best of Joburg website.
