Every Friday Alba and I venture out on a little mommy/daughter date usually in search for the perfect morning tea spot! Last Friday we decided to visit the new Bondies Designer Cupcakes store in Apollo Drive, Albany.
We arrived to a busy little line leading all the way out the door. The line moved very quickly though and it gave us a chance to glance over the array of delicious cupcakes on display. Most customers in line were just popping in to pick up a takeaway coffee and cupcake which they pack into a little white cupcake box. This is a definitely a busy spot on a Friday morning but there is plenty of space and seats available.
Inside the front counter is filled with an assortment of perfectly iced cupcakes, so many different flavours to choose from! The store is beautifully presented, it’s light and bright and the staff are so friendly and welcoming.
Alba decided on the ‘Mint Chocolate’ cupcake with pale green icing and I ordered the chocolate and pretzel flavour they call ‘Vania’s Pic’. For drinks I ordered a large Cappuccino with lots of cinnamon and the lady on the counter recommended Alba to try the baby shake with strawberry milk.
Alba made herself comfy on a nice big armchair before I had even finished ordering, a sunny little spot in the front window. We tucked into our cupcakes and they were delicious! Everything you would want from a cupcake – super moist and the perfect ratio of fluffy icing to cake. My coffee was lovely and strong just how I like it, with lots of cinnamon on top.
The Baby shake came out and my gosh it was the sweetest thing ever. A little mini smoothie jar filled with strawberry milk, topped with lashings of whipped cream and sprinkles around the rim. Alba’s eyes lit up! Seriously all the heart eyes!
We think a visit to Bondie is a must! Whether it be for a cute little baby chino date with your little one, a coffee and sweet treat with your girlfriends or dashing in to pick up a big box of delicious cupcakes to take home and share.
