Cafe Watch: Little and Friday

Coming in rather late on the bandwagon, but I’ve finally given the ever so popular, Little and Friday a try!

Food: Don’t go in expecting a breakfast/lunch menu because you will be disappointed as they only serve items from their cabinet. However, they do offer a good selection of delectable treats such as their famous doughnuts, tarts, savoury pastries, meringues as well as hot pies from their heating oven. You can opt for a salad to accompany any savoury items if you’re feeling like some greens. Deciding on what to eat is the hardest part as everything looks so good.

Coffee: Supreme – my short macchiato was simple but flawless.

Price: Slightly on the expensive side at around $4 – $10 for a pastry and tarts and $8.50 for a pie.

Location and Parking: This Little and Friday branch in New Market is located away from the busy shopping area and is situated inside Martha’s fabric store. There is a couple allocated parking if you’re lucky, but there is ample street parking close by.

Dining Experience: My friends and I went to the New Market branch, thinking there will be less people. We were lucky as we went early, so we managed to get a seat on one of the two large wooden communal table. The place filled up quickly. The staff were nice and helpful and the cafe has great atmosphere. Our portabella mushroom and mozzarella tart flakey pastry was utterly delicious and we managed to make room for their sweet treats. My hazelnut and chocolate cake is similar to a luscious Ferrero Roche and it was rich and moist. My friend’s summery strawberry tart was a much lighter (and healthier) option and it was not overly sweet, so the natural flavours of the strawberries stood out. We had a lovely time, and I can’t wait to come back and try their doughnuts!
