“Dessert Treats”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This place does desserts and only desserts. The menu is based on flavours - you pick the flavour you like, say "salted caramel", "chocolate" or "passionfruit" and the rest is up to them. You are served this plate of wonderful treats all themed with the flavour you have picked. If this is not your style then you can select your own sweet treat from the huge display cases of fresh desserts including cakes, macaroons and ice cream style desserts.

Warning - they do not take bookings and it's TINY - seating 10-15 people maximum. You need to go to the door and give them your mobile number - then you can go and enjoy a drink in one of the local pubs (I recommend Northern Steamship on the corner) & they will ring you when your table is ready. Do not be put off if there is a q of people to get their name on the list - remember.....it's just dessert, it does not take long for people to select, be served and leave (30-45minutes maximum). It's worth the wait. Enjoy!

Oh - and don't forget....if you really cannot bring yourself to wait......then go inside and select takeaway items from the display cases, you won't be disappointed

“Beautiful patisserie!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I bought several items to take away - a fig and mascarpone tart, and 3 falvours of macaron (lamington, rhubarb and vanilla, pear and caramel). They were all exquisite looking, and tasted great. The combination of flavours was well-balanced and obviously came from quality ingredients.

It was really difficult to choose from the extensive range in the cabinet, but the staff were helpful in explaining the different products and patient while I made my selection. I would definitely come here again and perhaps dine in next time. While the prices may seem higher than other places, the quality is also higher, so it's definitely worth it. This is not your average cake shop.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Went for a girls night and we had a fantastic time. Everything is made onsite and look incredible. The hardest part is choosing as there are so many delicious desserts to chose from. Im already planning my next visit.

“Got a glimpse of heaven!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Have been to this beautiful little gem twice now and have both times had their bomb Alaska ice cream and also snuck in a macaroon. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Auckland to treat themselves to one of milse's stunning desserts.
