Famous for their Vanilla Slice, Aj and I wanted to see it for ourselves whether they really are the best in town.
We arrived at the shop at 0730 on a Saturday morning, it wasn’t because we were desperate no – it was on our way to work. Street parking at that time in the morning wasn’t an issue; the city was in deep sleep.
There was a half empty tray of Vanilla Slices placed in the display when we got there, they didn’t look as fresh as the new tray brought out before we left the store. I wonder if the batch we got were left overs?Taste Taste: French Lettuce Vanilla Slice has moist fillings covered by the crispy pastry; I liked the balanced texture and flavour. Even if they weren’t the best in town I would give high scores for its quality – not to mention that they ARE voted to be the best.
We also bought a strawberry tart along with the vanilla slice; was pretty good also.Grabbed a take away coffee and chai latte from them also, we weren’t impressed with the beverages. It was a burnt coffee plus powdered chai latte. Dessert Average Price: $5.00 – $6.00
