After creating and nurturing the beloved Patisserie in Johannesburg’s Illovo for 10 years, Glenda Lederle sold in 2002 and moved to start up the infinitely popular, Katerina’s restaurant at Kurland Estate outside of Plettenberg Bay.
It was at the Patisserie that Glenda became renowned for her beautifully presented pastries and cakes however not many people know that in 2013 & 2014, Glenda decided to travel the world. She trained in some of Europe & America’s top kitchens from ‘The Red Rooster’ in New York City, to the acclaimed ‘Petersham Nursery’ & world famous ‘River Café’ in London to Four Seasons Michelin starred restaurant in Berlin.
Having returned home in May 2015 to seek out a new spot for her restaurant, Glenda bided her time until the right location presented itself. Glenda’s in Hyde Square is now open for breakfast, lunch, tea, after work drinks and dinner. There is also a ‘choux choux’ lounge for quaffing champagne and ‘Dotty Choux’ the takeaway patisserie counter specialising in Choux Pastry.
