Auckland City is undeniably in its bakery era. Every week we find ourselves uncovering an influx of new openings, and bakeries, with no word of a doubt, are delivering in spades.
But the thing is — most of these bakeries are genuinely very excellent, and such is the likes of Wheatz Bakery, the cute new CBD-based bakery specialising in cute little stuffed croissants, petite and perfect Swiss Rolls and a very glorious croissant-doughnut hybrid that looks like a stack of hot waffles. The tactic is to approach one of the oversized, open cabinets and grab all you can before they’re long gone (which we’re told happens very quickly).
Here, your pastries can (and should) be washed down with something from the expansive drinks menu — such as bubble tea, fresh fruit tea, drinkable yoghurt and sweet iced lattes, among all the usual caffeinated suspects.
If you’re planning a visit to Wheatz Bakery this weekend, we’d recommend taking wee ones in tow and helping yourselves to a tray of goods to share. The strawberry cream croissant is essential, as is the matcha black bean Swiss roll and the decadent chocolate crepe cake. Enjoy!
