My final work lunch of the 2016 year was at Bistro Guillaume, a handy spot with a vista including the ever tranquil Yarra River. We had a big group and a big appetite and both were taken care of over our experience. You can expect expensive, […]
There’s something ever so artificial about the experience at Runya’s Room, but the pastries are good enough to encourage a repeat visit. Ryan and I had been keen to check out this shiny new store in St Collins Lane for a while now and my […]
I quite like the pastries and baking at Gontran Cherrier. The croissants are different but still very enjoyable with a rich buttery flavour without the flakiness of a more traditional execution, which I don’t mind. Living nearby I enjoy stopping in for a treat on my way to the Coles to indulge in some self-service checkout fraud. I did come across a very rude lady here on my first visit at Gontran Cherrier, she threw a fit because I stepped on her feet. I said nothing but shot back a glance that would signify it was fully intended.
Above is the green tea and white chocolate scone, one of the more creative bakery items on the range here to entice the hipster inner north crowd. I enjoyed this with the two making for a delicate union, much like my shoe and that woman’s foot. I’ve dabbled across the breads and other baked items and these are all solid, I haven’t yet dined on the menu but I’m in agreement with the one review I read which said the whole place feels like a frozen yogurt store. That’s cold.
I’ve only had crepes one other time whilst in Melbourne and Breizoz French Creperie is one of the highest rated places in walking distance from my house so I was keen to pop for an after work bite. The interior was apparently all booked out but […]
If you time it right, you can enjoy an absolutely fantastic best in market croissant that’s fresh from the oven. It’s rich and buttery with a delightful aroma and the perfect level of crunch as you go through layers and layers of pure delight. When […]
A friend and I had a long overdue catch up over an early breakfast at Roule Galette, a crêperie I was keen to check out after reading some good reviews around the places. I dunno if we had as good of an experience, it was fine but we didn’t find the sweet options we had that spectacular.
I went for the Theo crepe, which was a with a homemade caramel, salted batter, chocolate and almonds with my companion going for the very tall Aumoniere with ice-cream, whipped cream and chocolate. The crepe itself was well done but for ten dollars it didn’t seem much more advanced than a few toppings and splashings of sauce around. The savoury crepe options sound quite nice so I could definitely be enticed to return to try those ones.
