Eating Out: Brunetti Carlton


Category : , , ,

Brunetti's is not just a cafe, it's an institution.
The original branch is just off Lygon Street, in Melbourne. It spans over 3 shop fronts with every possible cake, chocolate, pastry, gelati, dessert you can imagine. Instead of 1 coffee machine, there is about 4 with just as many if not more baristas taking care of all the coffee orders that never seem to stop coming in.

The cakes line the shop front window, making anyone stop in their tracks and admire the fine work of the pastry chefs.

We were lucky to get a table, walking around for about 5 minutes we sat outside.
Coffees were ordered and we took turns to go and get our desserts.

Iron Chef Alana and her boy got tiramisu:

I got a layered mousse: pistachio, strawberry and chocolate. It was so light and delicious, the perfect portion size.

Iron Chef Rob got some nibbles to take home:

If you are EVER in Melbourne I cannot recommend this place enough! Although be aware it's always busy. Even if you can't get a seat, get something to take away! You will not be disappointed.
