Can't fault the quality of all the things for sale here...you don't achieve such perfect flavours with B grade ingredients. I am sure I once saw a recipe for the famous strawberry watermelon cake, but even I wouldn't attempt it, so I bought it here. Put it on the bucket list, it is something everyone must try at least once in their lifetime . Great to take guests from out of town or overseas. They will be blown away.
Great location in Newtown with the ever so popular watermelon cake. I am from QLD so it was nice to actually try the cake without the usual line up! It was great with their house roast coffee and definitely want to go again. Friendly and approachable staff made for a great experience!
The home of the most Instagram media cake... the famous watermelon cake! Their website doesn't work great on mobile, so if you plan on ordering a cake online, do so on a laptop or desktop computer.
However to rectify the issue I called the store and they were extremely friendly and helpful.
I love this cake and it comes in different sizes to suit any occasion. The watermelon is crunchy, the rose water a delight to the senses and it looks gorgeous.
Always a great selection of cakes of high quality and nice taste. Service is always efficient as always a constant queue there. Bought a couple of vegan doughnuts (coconut and cinnamon sugar), Strawberry Watermelon Cake with Rose Scented Cream, and Amedei Chocolate and Hazelnut Torte.
