Lamb Shank Pies & Watermelon Cake - delectable!

5 minutes walk from New Town station.

You will be surprised at how a simple slice of watermelon can create an wholesome & refreshing taste in your mouth!

Be sure to get there early as the space is pretty confined and can probably seat less than 20 people (rough estimate).

Definitely a must to go when you're on the area! Try the lamb shank pie and their famous watermelon cake! We went here on a busy Saturday afternoon so the customer service wasn't as great ( I guess they had a busy morning) but the cakes and pies did not fault! Definitely will go here again when I'm in the area!

Incredible quiches!! The strawberry and watermelon cake lives up to its reputation. They have a great selection of cakes for many diets (vegan, gluten-free), so no one misses out at all. The staff are really friendly too. It's a tiny cafe so make sure you get there early if you intend on eating there. It's well worth queuing for possibly the best pastries and cakes in Sydney!!

Everything is so good. The lamb shank is juicy. The cakes look delicious and you wont be disappointed when you take a bite of it. Friendly staff and really great atmosphere.

Ok, so we didn't squat and eat....but by the look of lines we definitely thought we would have to! Regardless, cute place, but be prepared to wait a bit especially on the weekends.
