In one word: Sub-standard
Purchased en-route home from the city, there aren't too many good vanilla slice options in Melbourne Central unless you go to chain coffee shops. This one looked OK so got it home and served it up with some raspberries. "Coffee is our passion" is the slogan, clearly not vanilla slices. This one was soggy and bland. The pastry was so soggy that I gave up trying to cut it with a knife and fork and just ate the custard, icing and raspberries. The custard was serviceable and mildly vanilla tasting, but nothing special and the fondant icing adequate at best. Thank goodness I had the lovely raspberries too!
