Elliott Stables is a lovely place to stop for a bite in Auckland city centre. It combines the pick-and-mix choice of a food court with the atmosphere of a cosy restaurant. And in Elliott Stables is Delectable Desserts.
I have loved the idea of dessert cafés since I first came across one in Vancouver many years ago. What could be more wonderful than to have a special end to a culinary night out care of a specialist pastry chef?
Delectable Desserts offers a cosy setting, friendly service and a good mix of classic and unusual recipes. I enjoyed creme brulée, while my friends’ chocolate mousse and chocolate soup (!) were also very good. There is nothing nouvelle cuisine about the portion sizes – come here for generous lashings of cream, chocolate and meringue! In fact, it’s probably the perfect antidote to a bad day.
