I don’t know if I can add anything that hasn’t already been said. If you want an exceptional cake and exceptional quality don’t go past Kurk cakes. It is simply amazing and any cake will be the centrepiece for any occasion.

Because? I love vanilla slice ,and now I have had Kurt’s I will never be happy with any other vanilla slice again . The custard was creamy and smooth , the pastry was crisp and light and the icing subtle . I’m going back today...to try something else . Coffees were good and they had dairy milk as well as others . I can see why you get the accolades ..More

Very small cafe located on Cavenagh Street, very service and the cakes are great. Also cold drinks and coffee available.

Lovely service by the girl who served me. $6.40 or something like that for a takeaway pie is pushing it a bit but not too bad. The pie pastry was very odd. More like a quiche pastry. Not the worst pie ever but the owner...might do well to sample a few other meat pies and review his pastry recipe.More

We highly recommend this bakery. The Black Forest cake you made for us was brilliant - it looked beautiful, and tasted genuine, yet it was quite light. And the birthday boy loved it! Now our little grandson wants one just like it for his next...birthday so we'll be back. Thanks Kurt!More

A brief catch up with a friend and I asked if we could visit Kurt's Cakes. Smallish cafe with indoor seating and two displays - one for savoury and one for sweet. I ordered a quiche to take away for lunch and enjoyed a superb...lemon curd and fresh raspberry with white chocolate tart with my soy chai latte. My friend had a coffe and a red velevet cupcake. An unassuming place that produces delightful cakes and does celebration cakes to order. A nice spot to have a quiet catchup. EnjoyMore

I didn't have a wedding cake from him, but I would be surprised if he didn't make them to order.
