We all love a bit of Gelato, Cake, Muffin and Ice Cream but where can you get the best. We put a list of the best Melbourne sweet spots.
CLAREMONT STREET, SOUTH YARRA VIC 3141, AUSTRALIA
First on our list best Melbourne sweet spots is Adriano Zumbo. Since appearing on MasterChef Australia, Adriano Zumbo has become one of Australia’s most celebrated patissiers. You will find many delectable cakes, colourful Zumbarons, tarts and pastries that are quirky, innovative and appealing to the eye. Adriano’s creativity is evident in every layer of his elaborate desserts and unique flavour combinations that you will not find anywhere else.
29 SCOTT STREET, ELWOOD VIC 3184, AUSTRALIA
Lune Croissanterie is the brainchild behind the almighty cruffin (a hybrid croissant and muffin). They have a cult following with people lining up from 5am just to secure their bundle of baked goods. They are in such high-demand that each person is only allowed to purchase six items – so choose wisely. Delicious, flakey and buttery layers of goodness that are definitely worth the wait!
38 TOORAK ROAD, SOUTH YARRA VIC 3141, AUSTRALIA
LuxBite was established by two Malaysian pastry chef’s; you will see the fusion of Asian and Australian flavours appear in some of their creations. There are plenty of amazing sweets and desserts to delight the eyes and the tastebuds, with a unique combination of flavours and textures.
187 FLINDERS LANE, MELBOURNE VIC 3000, AUSTRALIA
Om Nom is a luxurious, sumptuously decorated dessert bar in the heart of the CBD. The desserts are spectacular; not only do they look like pieces of art, but they taste unimaginably delicious!
285-287 COVENTRY STREET, SOUTH MELBOURNE VIC 3205, AUSTRALIA
Chez Dre is a bustling hub of French-inspired sweet and savoury delights, tucked away in a South Melbourne laneway. They have a beautiful array of gateaux and macarons displayed behind clear glass, sitting on a marble bench top. What I love about the gateaux is the complexity of flavours and the different layers and textures.
N2 Extreme Gelato
329 BRUNSWICK STREET, FITZROY VIC 3065, AUSTRALIA
N2 Extreme Gelato uses liquid nitrogen in their gelato, resulting in an exceptionally smooth texture. The menu changes on a weekly basis with a list of wonderfully indulgent flavour combinations. You pick a flavour from the blackboard and they make it for you on the spot.
We hope you enjoyed our guide to the best Melbourne sweet spots where you can treat yourself to something delicious.
