Weekday Mornings [Queen Sally’s Diamond Deli]

The Maranui crew have hitched a ride on the end of Summer with their new sidewalk deli, Queen Sally’s Diamond Deli in Lyall Bay.  Katy and I celebrated the opening with a flat-white (me), a latte (her) and a fluffy (Jimmy).  Lido and Annie were content to munch on my gingerbread men.  I returned a few times during the first week for morning coffee, and again on the weekend for soba noodle salad and a salami sandwich.  It’s a bit like being whacked in the face with a coffee bat drinking Havana coffee again – after so long on the Mojo, Supreme and People’s beans; but it could be just the kick I need to get going on the weekday mornings.

    • Ha ha, a “fluffy” is what all the Wellingtonians give their kids to keep them happy in the cafes. It is just a cup of the frothed milk and, depending on the cafe (and the price) can be souped up with sprinkles, cocoa, marshmalllows, marshmallow chocolate fish and all manner of naughty treats.

  2. Love your recent reviews on Welly’s finest cafes. I’ve yet to actually make it to the Diamond Deli, but hubbie picked me up a latte from there on Friday morning and it certainly hit the spot!

    Your blog looks awesome and I really marvel at how you do it all?! Do you actually sleep? x
