Bedford Soda (read full post here) – whilst we found the sodas refreshing they weren’t as flavourful as we remembered. The Oreo Shake on the other hand we saw our friend finish in a matter of seconds!P1015964-Edit

The Dairy (read full post here) – sadly they’d run out of root vege crisps by the time we got there but we managed to get an ice cream sandwich topped with candy floss! The cookies were too hard and possibly slightly overcooked/burnt – hopefully they get back the soft chewy ones soon! We’d recommend the Vintage strawberry ice cream flavour, super delicious.P1015976-Edit P1015969-Edit P1015971-Edit

Here are a few snaps my friend and I took on a casual walk around Auckland.

twohonesttruths_foxtrotparlour09Of course, an adventure is never complete without food and as always, Foxtrot Parlour manages to make some show-stopping food. Be it from their sister The Dairy (read here), or this DIY donut that comes with its own saucy syringe and cream. Somehow when they give you some responsibility with compiling your food, it tastes just that much better. Be warned though, it gets crazy messy. You’ll be licking the sugar off your fingers, pulling apart the donut, handling the knife to get some cream, and working the syringe – which requires both hands. It may be useful for them to supply wet tissues of some sort at the end to avoid translating your sticky mess any further than your table. I would definitely recommend sharing the donut, we loved the salted caramel one.

You could also take bush-walks, explore the Wintergarden or just lie on your back and admire the blue skies. twohonesttruths_foxtrotparlour10 twohonesttruths_foxtrotparlour11 twohonesttruths_foxtrotparlour12 twohonesttruths_foxtrotparlour13Hope you all had a great weekend!
