In one word: Inferior
When in Harbour Town your options for quality coffee and/or cake is limited. Having already visited and blogged about La Cirque that pretty much just leaves Degani (as I wouldn't be desperate enough to resort to The Coffee Club). I've eaten in plenty of Degani's around the city before and their stock does vary from store to store, therefore it was a healthy punt on their French Vanilla slice. At $5.90 the price was pretty hefty. Then, when you consider the overall satisfaction I got I would say that I was ripped off. A poor pastry that was weak, stale and a nightmare to cut through sandwiching an inferior, plane cream filling topped off with a half-arsed dusting of icing sugar pretty much sums it up. Vanilla...what vanilla? Done.
