The Caker Cafe

Next year I want to start up my own cafe / shop where people can come for the best coffee and tea in town and a slice of cake. I'm thinking something very Agnes Curran / Rose Bakery-esque with little tables for two and a big long communal table in the middle. I want flowers and art and vintage tea cups. I want people to walk past and be drawn in with the smell of freshly bakes cakes. There will be organic salads and strawberry tarts and customers will be able to purchase whole cakes for their dinner parties. What do you think?

  1. i think yes!!!!!!!! i can make meringues or marbles fudge pieces! xxxxx mon

  2. I think this is an excellent idea. Please do it.

  3. It sounds lovely. I always like cafes with vintage furniture and mismatched old cups and plates, they feel cozy and inviting.

    Guess what?! I helped a friend with a catering event last night with her dessert bar and we're going to talk about working out a flexible internship soon. Apparently they're doing a lot of chocolate work next week :) So excited!

    Will you have more savory items than just salads? I know I eye the quiche at cafes whenever I need a little something closer to a meal.

  4. I think this is a wonderful idea! Auckland is need of quaint Aggy Curren-esque tea shops! Go for gold!!!
