a guilty (bi-weekly) indulgence

I love love love this place. I work nearby and frequent it often, there's nothing like one of their delicious macarons after a particularly bad day. Your troubles just melt away with it. Excellent pastries, I have never been disappointed with any of it. Sometimes they fill their cheesecake with a chocolate ganache, and oh gawd, words can not even explain how amazing it is.
I can never go anywhere else for birthday cakes again. They always come out delicious, and are always stunningly beautiful.
They also sell baking supplies here and at pretty reasonable prices, I've gotten candy moulds and gel colouring here before, and the quality of the supplies are always very good. I believe they sell the brands that they use?

Service is always outstanding, if you are custom ordering they are very professional and it always comes out better than I could have ever dreamed. It's run by two people, Patrice and Katarina, and they are the nicest people and always remember my name when I come in.

The prices are quite reasonable, pastries are around 2.50, chocolates run from 5 - 15 usually, and I got a beautiful white chocolate cake for a friend for only 60 dollars, it was huge, fed all 25 people at the party easily and we even had leftovers for the morning after!

Like a previous reviewer mentioned, it is a very small place, there are no seats in it really, just a kitchen, a small front area to display their pastries and a desk where they do their paperwork, but it doesn't really matter because macarons always taste best when you're sitting on the pier on a gorgeous sunny day.

I walked past this place today, and remembered seeing some pretty good reviews for it here, but ended up being sorely dissapointed.

The rice was overcooked and the fire dynamite roll (i believe that was the name) was badly rolled and ended up being a complete mess to eat. Also, the (mushy) tempura in it was more batter than prawn, i actually picked out chunks of deep fried tempura batter that weren't even attached to the prawn.

However, my food arrived fairly quickly and the server was helpful and cheerful. It's mostly self serve as mentioned by other reviewers so I can't really rate much for service, otherwise it would've been a four.

Maybe I just picked a bad day to eat at this restaurant, but I most likely will not be returning.
