In one word: Average
Winners of lots of pie competitions, this place was a good bet for decent pastry. Actually, the pastry was not bad at all. It's consistency much like a traditional puff in thin layers and no sign of moisture from the custard. The custard itself, pretty 'bog-standard Aussie bakery' vanilla slice and verging on a little gelatinous. The taste was much better than the texture in all honesty, but no custard spillage as a result. The icing again rather average and a little too thick, but at $3.80 the price is more than appealing. I would have to agree with their slogan: "Fresh food for busy people", but a reminder of how far I have come that I only score this 'more than adequate' vanilla slice at only a 6/10.
