Whenever Jeremy and I have been in Auckland, we’ve seen this little cafe called Moustache. Mainly because it’s on the way up to the casino. We always go to the casino. We’ve always wanted to check out what Moustache is all about, but for some reason it’s always been closed. I think there was one time it was open but we had just eaten so wouldn’t have been able to eat any more.
Lucky for us, the owner of Moustache has a bus that she has brought down to Wellington to sell the cookies here. It’s been here for a while now I believe, but on Sunday Jeremy and I decided it was time to try it out. We noticed they posted on Facebook saying they were about to sell out of cookies for the day, and that they would have to close early. We thought we’d risk it anyway, so drove into town to give it a go.
We were in luck, the queue was a bit long, but not nearly as long as we expected it to be. The bus is really cute and it’s a really cool idea. It’s a bit pricey, but I guess they can afford to charge those prices when they’re as popular as they are.
I decided to go for the most basic combo on the menu – milk and a cookie. That combo was only $4.50, so I can’t really complain about that price. But if you wanted a milkshake instead of the plain milk, you’d have to fork out $11.50. Ouch.
I chose the Snickers cookie, and plain milk. Jeremy ordered the same combo, but went for the Oreo and Marsh cookie and strawberry flavoured milk. It was pretty delicious and worth the wait.
They even had a little dining area inside the bus. We scored ourselves a couple of seats, which was good because it was getting a bit chillier outside. Looking at the equipment inside the bus, they had a lot going on. There was a milkshake machine, a cookie oven and a coffee machine. It’s amazing how much stuff you can fit into such a small bus.
When we were ready to leave, the queue had grown twice as long as it was when we got there. We must have arrived at the right time for sure!
It’s located at quite a strange place, but at the same time that’s good because who knows how busy it would be if it was right in the city. I have a feeling Moustache will be popular for a long time, and I wouldn’t mind going back there sometime to try some of their other cookies.
Does Moustache look like a place you’d like to visit?
