Are you a cone or cup person? Decide at Spring Street Grocer's can't-walk-past gelati bar where fresh fruit is turned into frozen magic. Swan into the grand dining room at Hotel Windsor for traditional afternoon tea then head down Bourke Street and upstairs to caravan-themed Grand Trailer Park Taverna where indulgent burgers lead onto oversized waffles, cakes and brownies. Move onto the gleaming Koko Black salon for made-in-Melbourne chocolate artistry. Dessert-focused Om Nom serves spectacular sweet fantasies; consider a dessert degustation. Runya's Room and Hopetoun Tea Rooms both serve elegant high teas; Hopetoun is in the gorgeous Block Arcade and often has queues. Just as lovely is Royal Arcade, which conceals tiny Agathé Pâtisserie, an outpost of the South Melbourne Market bakery. Finish off with a bang at laneway Dex2rose Nitrogen Gelateria for an instantly frozen and possibly interactive dessert. 3km
