What's coffee without cake? Only half the story: that's what. If sweet spots are what what you seek, Melbourne and the surrounding 'burbs have you covered in pastry, dough, sugar, sponge cake, custard and tarts. Bakeries, patisseries, cake shops, tea salons and cafes abound in Melbourne, and you don't have to go far to find your fix. From the humble slice of home-made carrot and walnut cake, to jewel-like macarons or glistening sculptural desserts, there's a treat just for you, and a place to perch too.
