Sticky Sweets opened in June 2016 and since then, has only gone from strength to strength. If you are ever in Newport, this is a definite place to stop by.
Consumed: Black Coconut Sticky Rice Pudding, Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
Drank: Coffee (long black)
Located directly across from the station, this is one cozy location. What you immediately notice is the brilliant artwork on the wall.
If only sweets really did grow on trees… The eye catching entrance to Newport stations is taken by the owner himself, an avid photographer. In Sticky Sweets, he explores bringing the taste of home cooked Thai delights to Melbourne.
But first, the coffee! One word – delicious. The Kenta coffee, from Zest, is grown in Mt Ambra in Papua New Guinea. I enjoyed the taste as it was smooth and creamy and not overly bitter.
In the winter, I enjoyed the Black Coconut Sticky Rice Pudding. This was one amazing and filling sweet dish in itself. And if I was being honest, I could have skipped lunch all together and just go straight for it. The combination of sticky rice, covered in coconut was something I have personally haven’t had before.
In summer, the home made ice cream was amazing and light. And if you’re energy conscious, the ice creams are made with less sugar and more natural ingredients.
This close to the city and all that was under $10! You have to try it.
The cosy location makes it a great little getaway either for couples, young parents, or the sweet tooth!
The owner, Bun was very attentive and always had a cheery smile!
