Try to be unhappy at Manning’s Bakery. You can’t. It’s just the happiest place. It’s a place where it’s wholly appreciated that you might want a cup of tea, which is a nice change in this increasingly coffee-fuelled city. And then, the baked treats. The bacon, sausage and relish puff pastries are a hangover cure in their own right, whilst the breadth of their baking is better than your ICA card-toting granny’s. There are cream cakes, made with actual cream and not shaving foam with added sugar, moreish danishes that much you feel positively like a fille Francaise. and ahhhhhh just sugary goodness, everywhere. Je ne regrette rien. Every. Single. Time. / Kate Coleman
