1/7 WINDSOR ST, PARNELL
Sonia and Laurent Haumonte know the secret to baking macarons, croissants and baguettes to French perfection in the face of Auckland’s humidity. It was one of the biggest challenges they encountered upon moving to Auckland from Paris five years ago, but they refused to give in to importing frozen equivalents. They fitted out their simple but sophisticated Parnell pâtisserie themselves and the main attraction is a cabinet of Cordon Bleutrained Sonia’s magnificent gateaux.
