Purple Yum Cafe (Chadstone)

Filipino/Cafe $ This quaint little Filipino joint has a fantastic ube cake that I just keep going back for. It’s not too sweet and incredibly moist, and the icing is the perfect finish. It’s very popular, and I can see why! They also sell a few traditional dishes for lunch, mostly rice based. Great simpleContinue reading “Purple Yum Cafe (Chadstone)”

Blackstar (Chadstone)

Dessert $ Of course their famous watermelon cake is delicious, but their black sesame cheesecake is really great too! Have to say the watermelon is still my favourite though, perfect balance of light and creamy but not too sweet. Also tried their limited edition hot cross buns; sweet and sticky on the outside but softContinue reading “Blackstar (Chadstone)”

Kurimu (Glen Waverley)

Bakery $ Fantastic Asian dessert place; famous for its cream filled crispy pastries called Choux, that are wonderfully light and sweet. My favourite is the lychee and raspberry. Not a large portion size so you don’t feel too guilty about eating it! The Glen Waverley store also sells Asian flavoured croissants such as pork floss,Continue reading “Kurimu (Glen Waverley)”

AgathΓ© PΓ’tisserie (South Melbourne)

Bakery $ There’s always a huge line outside this store in South Melbourne Market, now understand why! Beautifully delicate, and sweet but not overly so. My favourites are the custard heart and the pandan croissant. But you may be waiting for quite a while, so don’t go if you’re in a hurry! πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯ 10/10 https://shop.agathe.com.au/

La Petite Creperie (CBD)

French $ The wonderful buttery smell of crepes alone is enough to draw crowds at this small stall on Little Collins St on the CBD. The service is lovely and friendly, and while not super cheap, you can’t go wrong with crepes! Great if you’re craving dessert at night in the city. A nice sliceContinue reading “La Petite Creperie (CBD)”

Meet Fresh (Glen Waverley)

Dessert $ A bit of a misleading name, but a popular Taiwanese dessert franchise, famous for its shaved ice. A relatively light dessert that suits an Asian palate. Had the Q Mochi Snowflake Ice, mochi was soft and chewy, and shaved ice was light with a delicate condensed milk flavour. But my new favourite isContinue reading “Meet Fresh (Glen Waverley)”

Koko Black (South Yarra)

Dessert $$ This chocolate is next level. My favourites are the coconut dotties and the Australian wattleseed biscuits! Eating in was less impressive, brownie was a bit dry. Mango white chocolate smoothie was too thick. The chocolate honey joys were surprising great. And the easter ‘eggs’ were praline chocolate! https://www.kokoblack.com/ 🍫 🍫 🍫 🍫 🍫 🍫 🍫 🍫  8/10

Zero Mode (Boxhill)

Brunch $$ Modern brunch place next to Boxhill Central. Very popular, even on weekdays! Recommend a reservation. Poke bowl was very flavoursome and big portion size. Dessert had a nice entertainment factor, removing the plastic casing to watch the cream flow out. Bit on the expensive side, but good quality! 🍚🍚🍚🍚🍚🍚🍚🍚🍚 9/10

Mochimelb (online)

Asian Dessert $ A great Asian alternative for donuts! Mochi donuts have a gelatinous rice consistency and a great range of flavours, which change over the year. On the more expensive side for donuts, but have always been a hit for parties! You can order then via Facebook or Instagram. They do deliveries to certainContinue reading “Mochimelb (online)”

Lukumades (Windsor)

Greek Dessert $ One of the many dessert places on Chapel St. Definitely hits the spot if you’re craving doughnuts/sweet stuff, and don’t want to wait in line for Messina. Many different flavours to choose from. Wouldn’t recommend the icecream, could be better! https://www.lukumades.co/ 🍩 πŸ© πŸ© πŸ© πŸ© πŸ©  6/10
