Fantail is a wholesome little bakery and cafe located in the heart of Roncesvalles. Named after the indigenous bird of New Zealand, at this bakery you will find creative baked goodies that are all made in-house ( which is the norm in New Zealand bakeries). When you walk past this store, you can’t help but do a double-take, as the baked goods on their window display just look too irresistible.

The interior of Fantail is simple, yet elegant, with its subtle shades of lime green and exposed brick veneer by the counter. They also offer plentiful seating space with large wooden tables, perfect for group hangouts or simply enjoying a good book with your meal. The cafe’s clean aesthetic makes it feel like you’re at a high-class brunch restaurant.

You will find all kinds of baked goods for their menu, from sweets like cakes, cookies, and muffins to something more savoury like croissants, frittatas, and brioche. If you have a sugar tooth, be sure to try bread pudding which comes as a buttery croissant bread with custard, strawberries, and a hint of lemon zest to balance everything out. Yes, it is as good as it sounds.
There’s no better way to relax than enjoying a cup of coffee with the delectable sweets that can only be found here.
