A shared passion for jovial gatherings and empty plates brought Beate and Shanel together in 2004 when they were both students at the Institute of Culinary Arts in Stellenbosch. Beate joined The Birdcage in 2009 with big dreams and a desire to spread the love with her sweet creations. In 2011, Shanel brought her culinary skills to the table and together they became the proud owners of the bakery and cafe in Stellenbosch.

Beate and Shanel each add their own flavour to The Birdcage and together the duo champion their food philosophy: to honour nature by using seasonal produce that stays true to its most natural form.

  • New year, new J O U R N E Y

For over a decade we’ve poured our hearts and energy into the beauty that is the Birdcage – the treats, the eats and our cosy Stellenbosch café.
.
We’ve discovered the best people and the most delicious ingredients, and we’ve savoured every encounter. And in all of this, we discovered a taste for adventure. So when a new opportunity popped up, we were thrilled to take it – even though it means saying goodbye to our beloved Birdcage. .
We’ll be wrapping things up during the next few months up until the end of May, so get in your last mouthfuls of goodness while you still can! (We won’t be taking any wedding cake orders or caterings for events after May.)​
.
Thank you so much to all our supporters and cheerleaders – we hope to see you on the next adventure.
.
With full hearts, empty plates and dollops of gratitude,
Beate and Shanel

Our homemade granola is one of the recipes that’s been with us since day 1 and we think it looks super good in our new @klompceramics bowls
