Oh how we love Bluebells Cakery. With cafes in both Hillsborough and Eden Terrace, it was about time the North Shore got a bit of Bluebells action. Enter the oh-so delightful Takapuna store. Located in the trendy Fortieth & Hurstmere development (home to the likes of Fish Fish, Dante’s Pizzeria and Bird on a Wire), this cakery is your one-stop shop for a sweet treat (or two). In this bright and airy space, you’ll find all of Bluebells’ usual suspects: cupcakes, slices, cakes and macarons. Personally, we can’t go past their hybrid caramel and ginger slice—so gingery, so caramely. If you’re not much of a sweet tooth, there are also flavoursome salads and fresh sammies up for grabs.
