HOT: Agathe Patisserie, Rear 97 Chapel St, Windsor (Entry via Artists Lane ) and Prahran Market, 163 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

You know the reason why I could never be (willingly) gluten-free or sugar-free? Because I’m a pastry FIEND. And I love discovering French patisseries in Melbourne, with my newest find being Agathe Patisserie in Windsor. I have been stalking and drooling over Agathe Patisserie on Instagram for a while and finally had the opportunity to […]

HOT: By Josephine 365 Sydney Road Brunswick

By Josephine is a Brunswick patisserie and cafe straight out of a Paris salon. The pressed ceiling and all-white walls present a luxurious feel to the little daytime cafe, which specialises in macarons, pastries and savouries made on premises. The only thing that’s brought in is the bread and ultra-flaky croissants, both from Cavallini in […]

HOT: Sweet Evelyn, 128 Union St, Brunswick

Sweet Evelyn is a Brunswick cafe and micro bakery which is as sweet as its name (apparently named after the owners’ daughter). All the baked goods are made fresh on site every day, from the large range of cupcakes to the brownies, cookies and savouries – only the bread and croissants are brought in from Dench Bakery. […]

HOT: Parisian Patisserie Boulangerie, 19 Keilor Rd, Essendon

Parisian Patisserie Boulangerie is a slice of French deliciousness wedged in an unlikely pocket of suburban Essendon. The cosy two room shop is simply decked out in French provincial white with a few French artworks and fresh flowers. Today you won’t be able to miss it because the flags are out for Bastille Day! And […]

NOT: Collins Kitchen High Tea, Grand Hyatt Melbourne, 123 Collins St, Melbourne

Collins Kitchen is the snazzy restaurant within the Grand Hyatt with an open kitchen format and attached bar. As befitting a hotel restaurant it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus everything in between, including high tea. I’ve eaten a lot of high tea around Melbourne and sometimes it’s hard to judge whether a […]

HOT: High Coffee, The Waiting Room at Crown Towers, 8 Whiteman St, Southbank

If you’re lucky enough not to work Monday-Friday then quickstep to The Waiting Room at Crown Towers, where they are offering their twist on high tea – ‘High Coffee’ – for only $40 per person on weekdays. The Waiting Room is the lobby bar of Crown Towers and it is the exact opposite of a […]

HOT: Cacao Lab, Driver Lane, Melbourne

Arguably one of the happy consequences of H&M evicting the previous tenants of GPO is that Cacao Fine Chocolate has been transformed into Cacao Lab in Driver Lane. Cacao Lab, which is down an alleyway from the revamped Strand arcade, is a much bigger space than the previous island stand. It’s pretty hard to miss […]

Mother’s Day High Tea in Melbourne – Sunday 11 May

This Sunday 11 May is Mother’s Day, the one day of the year that you can really show your mum how much you appreciate her. One of the loveliest things you can do is to treat your mum to high tea (with or without the kids!). Here’s a round-up of Mother’s Day high teas in […]

HOT: The Tea Salon, Shop 2041 Level 2 Emporium Melbourne, 295 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

Melbourne is arguably Australia’s fashion and food capital – and we especially love afternoon tea. So it was a no brainer for Sydney-based outfit The Tea Salon to open their Melbourne outpost in the shiny new $1.2 billion Emporium Melbourne shopping centre. In amongst the sleek, modern architecture of Emporium Melbourne  The Tea Salon stands out as a place of storybook whimsy. […]

HOT: Candied Bakery, 81a Hudsons Rd, Spotswood

Candied Bakery in Spotswood is a bakery and café that’s a direct thumb-your-nose at those I Quit Sugar acolytes. If you’re quitting sugar then steer clear – there’s too much temptation inside. If, one other hand, you are unabashedly NOT quitting sugar then Candied Bakery is a place where sweet tooths die and go to heaven. […]
