A slice of vanilla heaven…
Vanilla Slice. Yep, there is a lot of it around & you can buy it at any decent bakery, but Just Fine Foods in Sorrento Main Street is home to the best vanilla slice on the peninsula.
But here’s the irony… this delectable vanilla slice and I came into this world at the same time, and I even had the delight of living above Just Fine Foods for the first year of my life, so I felt like I really owed it to myself to have a little taste.
After ordering my slice and not a spare seat in sight, we wandered next door opting for a bottle of wine with a view at the Continental Hotel
I excitedly tucked into this delicious treat …with its creamy pillow like texture that melts in your mouth, the crisp lightly puffed pastry and a surprise layer of sweet jam at the bottom, this vanilla slice is simply divine!
25 minutes later, I had enjoyed this yummy treat so much that I decided to share the love and grab a couple more for my family, only to find that in such a short space of time nearly half the tray was gone! One thing was clear: This dessert is hot property and seemed to be flying out the door…
From what I can gather, Just Fine Foods also sell other pastries, serve coffee and offer a very friendly service with a smile.
So next time you’re in Sorrento, just passing by or perhaps even have a craving for sweets, jump in the car and get yourself one of these beauties, I’m sure you won’t regret it!
