Acland Continental Cakes, St Kilda
Sometimes the St Kilda bakeries on Acland Street get a bit of a bad rap, as the product doesn’t quite match the exceptions of the highly visual and tourist-worthy window fronts on display. I tried my hand at vanilla slice at the Acland Continental Cakes as was happy with the result.
It was a heavy dose that was best shared and was pretty up there with vanilla slices that I have had around town with a good mix of crisp pastry and creamy custard. I’d probably say the range of items on offer is a bit too wide meaning the less popular items don’t stand up as much in delivery. So far I’ve been happier than the average reviews the place seems to get.
Pro tip: go for the seemingly more popular items
