I’d visited Sugar and Nice shortly after it opened last year, but paid a return visit last week after reading reviews about the amazing cakes and cronuts on offer.
The display counter with its beguiling array of slices, cup cakes, blondies and brownies, was a temptation I could not resist.
Dazzled as I was by the apple crumble cakes and the coffee salted caramel slice, my resolve wasn’t moved. I’d come for the cronut, and when I saw it in all its peanuty jammy gooey glory, I knew I wanted no other.
This cronut was a glorious crispy, layered, sugary circle like nothing I had tasted before. Heaven is a cronut.
My long macchiato was also very very good. Robust and flavourful without a hint of bitterness. Engaged as I was in cronut mania, I forgot to ask about the coffee beans.
Now the white chocolate blondie below was a little something I sampled on my return visit. The next day. Because this little cake joint is seriously good.
Son AB was visiting today and wanted to sample some cronut for himself. This nutella-topped version with its frosty pink filling was also delicious, but to me it didn’t quite match the heights of the peanut jam version.
Guess I’ll just have to keep on sampling the different fillings on offer to find the perfect one.
Sugar and Nice also sells a small range of gifts and decorator items. It’s a beautifully themed shop with limited seating, so it’s never too crowded and the noise level is always low. The perfect environment for a spot of cake in the afternoon.
