Maybe you’re thinking: “Carrot cake? Boring. How good can it be?”

Well, shoot those thoughts down and have a go at Kafe Utu’s Lush Carrot Cake ($8). This modest-looking cake is nutty and moist, with a dash of finesse that comes in the form of tangy citrus cream cheese frosting. Spices lurk in the background; you know they’re somewhere there.

Since we’re talking dessert, why not pair it with their Soft Serve Ice Cream ($4)? Flavours rotate occasionally, but if you happen to visit when bittersweet dark chocolate with cacao bits is on the menu, you know what to do.
