It's a bit of an excursion to get here if you're not a local and the parking is not so easy to find.
There is a beautiful selection of icecreams, cupcakes and other baked sweet treats on offer however.

The coffee is good.
The staff were delightfully friendly and helpful.
The baked treats were delicious.
The intention is obviously that most people will takeaway. The amount of seating is really very limited, but the space is very pretty amongst the gorgeous cakes and decorations.

Everything is so beautifully presented in this shop. The little pastries and cakes are very inventive (not your standard vanilla slices or jam doughnuts) and the cupcakes and macaroons look fantastic. I also enjoy the rolls at dinnertime - the poached chicken is very nice. I have never tried the icecream but some of the flavours look very interesting.

If you want a sweet treat, this is the place to go. We ask for extra hot coffee, they never complain like some places. The cakes are always fresh and yummy.

Popped in to treat my daughter to one of their fabulous ice creams and the owner treated my husband and I to some of the cupcakes to takeaway. They were delicious. Definitely worth a look if you're nearby. In fact Elizabeth St has some great places to eat and reasonable prices!

The macarons are exquisite. That's all there is to say. Every day new flavours - try the blackberry if you can get it - or the macadamia...
