I’ve looked admiringly in the window of Smiths Cakes and Aquilana Pasticceria on Smith St for years without entering, so I made up for this on a recent Saturday when I had coffee and cake with a friend there. The coffee is a relatively mild roast but well made and the huge range of Italian cakes and biscuits makes it difficult to choose what to have. This Sicilian treat is a pie style pastry with a fruit and nut filling and it was fantastic with coffee.
They also have gelati and savoury things including pizzas for lunch. I’ll be returning sometime to try one of those as they looked delicious.
