SOMEWHERE SPECIAL TO EAT

The glass windows that separate Cupple Café from the Y'a Bon French Baker next door allow café customers to watch the bakers hard at work folding dough into all kinds of deliciousness. If the bakers feel as if they're being watched it doesn't show as crispy croissants, mille feuille and baguettes fill the cabinets. “Thankfully, I don't feel as if I'm on MasterChef because the see-through panes are soundproof and I can't hear anything,” says owner and head baker, Normandy-born Moise Cerson. For Moise and his wife Andrea, the transparency has a deeper meaning. “It reflects the truthfulness of our food — that we have nothing to hide. And it reflects the way we want to live — with openness to our neighbourhood and all people in our city.” 216 Heretaunga St East, Hastings. (06) 871 0300, on Facebook.
