    Why cant *$s get decent pastries

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Well I dont know if this applies in Australia as I have never had a pastry from *$s but I though that this article might be interesting to everyone out there in coffee land.

    It is from the Sandiego union tribune
    http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20050331/news_lz1w31buns.html

    I found it here:http://snackish.blogspot.com/

    It made me think;
    What is everyones favourite coffee snack/pastry/cake ?

    Mine are the choc filled then dipped Amaretti from:

    Re: Why cant *$s get decent pastries

    There is a bakery chain in Melbourne called Ferguson Plarre. They have a few yummy things, but my favourite is what they call a long john.
    It is like a long doughnut, split lengthways, with strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream as a filling.

    They also do pretty good chocolate eclairs.

    Hey.. Im called fatboy for a reason ;D

    I had to google for Sfogliatelle. *;D

    Everything you guys have posted makes Paula and I want "something yummy" although most of the above are not "furry face friendly" and Ive no chance finding anything in Geelong at 11pm ;)

    I might have to try and make some of those Sfogliatelle. I had never heard of them either...
    Tim does Susies mum make her own or buy them? If she has a recipe Id love to try it if shes willing to share ;)

    The "spanish" star shaped doughnuts at the Queen Vic market are very hard to walk past... and even harder to get some back to Geelong (without eating her share too) ;)

    Basically anything from Dolci Sapori [smiley=tongue.gif]
    Its an Italian business that makes all sorts of yummy Italian pasteries and cakes, way to many to list.
    Ill have to take some pics of my favs and post.

    For those in Brisbane area they are located at on Sandgate RD and I believe also a shop in Newfarm.

    I travel across to the other side of Bris for the scrummies.

    Dam.... made myself hungry....time to go get some!

    Cheers

    Actually, Ive found Lebanese pastries go very well with espresso. At least thats my opinion. Especially ones with a bit of rosewater and pistachio.

    A ciambella from Brunettis with a cappuccino is an occasional morning treat for me.
