My summer holiday was long and filled with many adventures in the Bay of Plenty and Auckland….it’s was absolutely fantastic to discover some new little gems of places. I have to say Spongedrop is my new fav place to visit at Mt Maunganui, I dropped in three times over the course of the summer. Spongedrop is new to the Mount cafe scene, with their roots in the Little Big Markets, they have recently made the leap to a permanent location.
Spongedrop Cakery is on Salisbury Avenue in the former information centre (right beside the public toilets). The cakery is delightfully and simply decorated with a modern classic look, with gorgeous wee touches like fresh posies on each table. There are just three wee tables inside and a couple outside, but if it’s busy you can grab one of the picnic blankets and set yourselves up on the adjoining park lawn.
Along with an amazing array of fresh mouthwatering cupcakes and delightful macarons, they serve a fabulous raw chocolate caramel slice. All individual little masterpieces reflecting their passion for good quality food made with love. Not only are there all the fabulous sweet treats, Cassie the barista makes almost the best long black I’ve ever drank. And definitely, the best I have had outside of Wellington. Of course, I have to mention the coffee they serve is the fabulous Wellington roasted Coffee Supreme.
Danielle and team have created a delightful wee cafe, that is well worth a visit!!! Keep it up ladies, I’m looking forward to visiting again next time I’m in town.
I have not been recompensed in any form for this review, it is entirely my own views of a delightful holiday find.
