Pastry: The highlight; golden and flaky 9/10

Value for money: $6.50, Average size, fresh (on a Sunday) 7/10
Overall score: 7.5/10
"I've had my fair share of vanilla slices but nothing will ever compare to this one right here.
The photos do zero justice to how incredible it was. The vanilla custard was the best custard I've ever had in my entire life."
Naturally I had to check it out. With a sense of deja vu, it later dawned on me that the owner Harry also owns Jahdomes Cafe in Mill Park. I visited 14 months ago and I had quashed that rumour of the best vanilla slice then, and unfortunately this one fell short once more.
Whilst the cafe was great and we all enjoyed our lunches the assessable component on this blog was as follows:
Phil Puff: "Nice enough"
Marian: "Not custardy enough"
As a footnote, I noticed that from the almost identical Jahdomes slice, the Haytch slice is smaller and yet still the same price - hence why I scored this one slightly less overall.
As for some of the Zomato reviewers - get out and have some more vanilla slices and then re-evaluate your thoughts on this one.
