We'd also heard about Little & Friday, a confectionery-cafe churning out the most delectable baked goods. The good: they make beautifully scrumptious pastries and sweets. The bad: they only offer 1 type of pie per day, in limited quantities, which sells out within minutes. We got to their Newmarket branch half an hour after they put out their pies, and were left with just 2 lonely little sausage rolls, which the staff had to rustle from the back kitchen. Of course we snapped up them all up.
The shortcrust pastry of the Sausage Roll (NZ$9 each) was fantastic, but the filling of minced free-range organic pork laced with parmesan, tomato relish, and fresh garden herbs, unfortunately included a bit of parsley, which wasn't enough to make me hurl, but enough to have it fall short of my list of must-tries. I think, a few of my parsley-loving friends like Izzy and Vin and Ms Smarty-Pants would absolutely adore this.
The cafe front. It's a chic space swathed in white and clean lines, with a quiet relaxed ambience perfect for a languid breakfast.
