“Awesome Supreme Coffee and sweet treats”
Review of Spongedrop Cakery

A little cupcake shop in mount maunganui.
I visit every weekend to get a coffee which is very good and a lemon curd cupcake!
The cupcakes on offer all taste delicious every time I visit, once you have had one you will be back for more!!

We visited this charming little shop on the way back to our cruise ship. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
I was delighted to find that they had a couple of "gluten free" options in their range of cakes, so purchased two of their cakes, to enjoy at my leisure, on the cruise ship.
Yes, cruise ships do supply a large range of cakes, pastries and desserts, but sadly for me our ship had only one "gluten free" cake/dessert option available each day.
The slices I bought were big enough to divide into 4 pieces, to enjoy over 4 days.

A delightful wee cafe specialising in gorgeous cupcakes. Really enjoyed our ham and cheese croissant, so nice to have it heated properly - not in a microwave or flattened in a press. Lovely staff, and great prices.

Out for a drive with family on the coast and we decided to stop off and walk around a bit. We walked past Spongedrop - it is petite - without noticing it. But as we were walking through the park we noticed a set of tables and chairs on a patio which brought us inside.

The shop is very white - which is good because the customer area is compact. The decor puts me in mind of a little girl's tea party set. The counter staff was quite helpful and once they realized we were from the States, they were anxious to get our opinion on the cupcake of the moment - Boston Creme Pie. We also ordered a Raspberry Lemon cupcake and beverages.

The cupcakes were good - moist, and the Boston Creme Pie got a thumbs up. Our coffees were good - lattes, which we took in to-go cups.

It is not the type of place where I would linger because as people come in, there is little space for them to move so you could end up staring into someone's backside.

It is what it is - a sweet little shop near the park, where you can stop off and have a sweet little treat before you head out to enjoy the rest of your day.
