Charlotte and I thought it would be fun and possibly useful for others to review the bakery’s we visit while we hall it around Australia.
Charlotte has selected ‘Custard Tarts’ as the focus of the review and I’m reviewing Coffee – I drink a lot of coffee!
Custard Tart Review – Charlotte
One of my favourite features of the tart was the custard which was very wobbly which is nice and you could just eat the custard and it would be absolutely delicious.
The pastry was crispy and crunchy which went really well with the delicious custard.
Overall the textures were really good, but the pastry was quite sweet and so was the custard so it was a bit like sweet on sweet, otherwise delicious.

Coffee Review – Ken
My coffee of choice is a long machiato (topped up), but I’ve ran in to lengthy debates/issues in the past trying to order a Long Mach when interstate so have standardised on a flat-white – all parts of Australia should know the ‘Flat White’ – an espresso shot with hot frothed milk.
I like to taste coffee when I drink coffee – so will be ordering a strong flat white i.e. a double shot.
I wasn’t 100% sure my order for a double-shot flat white was understood correctly as English didn’t seem to be the member of staff’s first language.
Turned out they got it – the coffee came with ‘Ex’ on the lid – assumed Extra shot – nice!

Overall a great coffee, the temperature was perfect for me, initially hot enough that I could sip it but not quaff it! There was just a little something about the taste that stopped me awarding it 5 out of 5.
