Sugar Buns is a well known cafe located in Hampton Park Shopping Centre. They are very famous for elevating the insta shakes or freak shakes to a mega shakes. Sugar Buns is a bakery as well as a cafe, serving home baked pies, quince everyday as well as hearty brunch dishes. Love by the locals, busy even on the weekdays and many foodies venture to the cafe on weekends. The good news is they take reservations and there are plenty of car parks.

I have been wanting to try their mega shakes for quite some time but as usual I always got distracted on weekends and Sugar Buns is only reachable by private vehicles so it's pretty hard for me to get there on weekdays since my husband use the car on weekdays. Then finally on a Saturday, I woke up early and decided this is the day to visit Sugar Buns. I ordered their Mega Shake Chocoholic ($16) and Iced Tea Explosion Raspberry Mango ($14). The mega shakes was massive, I was tempted to order the bubble gum candy mega shake but I was swayed by the chocolate instead. The shakes has a perfect texture, not too thin but not too rich and beautifully constructed. The raspberry mango tea explosion was fun but the taste just average, taste a bit like cough syrup and I do think the price was too high.

My husband ordered one of his favourite food; Chicken Parma - battered chips and salad ($16). It comes in a massive portion and the chicken was crunchy on the outside, tender inside with melting cheese and ham on top. Even the chips was good, crunchy with enough saltiness.

I my self have been eyeing for their Carbonara Parpadelle - bacon two ways, mushroom, poached egg, spring onions, cream sauce ($17). The pasta was al dente but sadly the sauce was way too thin for my preferences. I needed more cheese and richness flavour but it does come in a very generous portion.

We were seated out front and sometimes a little bit hard to get attention from the staff even though we understand cause the cafe was really busy. The food price was very reasonable and comes in a very large portion but the main star still is their shakes. They have three size; mega, mini and baby perfect for all occasions and age. This was a fun experience, I would like to repeat some time in the future.
