There is this place, which could be known as the middle of nowhere. Mostly because it is halfway between two “somewheres”.
This middle of nowhere place is Woodville. I guess it’s not so much middle of nowhere. It does have a name. Most nowhere places don’t even have names.
In this little Manawatu town called Woodville, there is this tiny cafe and bakery called ‘Yummy Mummy’s Cheesecakes’.
I have passed this delicious bakery many times in my life. You even see the sign when entering Woodville from either end. However, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago, that I actually stopped there and purposefully walked into Yummy Mummy’s.
And I was impressed.
I ordered a simple chicken, cranberry and brie sandwich, a mocha, and of course, a cheesecake. It was all so satisfying.
An individual serving of one Yummy Mummy Cheesecake. This one was banoffee.
The coffee. Mojo, nonetheless.
I unfortunately did not snap a shot of the sandwich. It was JUST a sandwich, yanno.
But the thing I really loved about Yummy Mummy’s Cheesecakes was how it was decorated. It was covered in those old school, yet new, funny signs and tea-towels, which I happened to take some snaps of. YOU’RE WELCOME.
This one reminds me of my sister, for some reason. What do you think, Susan?
The other aspect of decorations in the cafe were shelves filled with heaps of old baking stuff. And I mean old.
Then there was the cool aspect of having an old TV with the tube removed and ceramic ice cream cones as sugar holders.
So if you do find yourself in Woodville with a hankering for a coffee and some cake. I would highly recommend Yummy Mummy’s. The coffee is good, the cheesecakes are delish and the atmosphere and service is pretty alright too.
But if you find that you have never quite made it through Woodville, or have never been and want to try some cheesecake, THEY DELIVER OVERNIGHT.
Now how about that?!
