7. The Cookie Box
There are cookies and then there are these New York-style confections loaded with nuggets of dark, milk and white Belgian chocolate. This Chapel Street store tempts you in to choose from their oven-fresh selection, which you can handpick or order online.
8. Lune Croissanterie
Maybe the most coveted croissants in Melbourne, these buttery beauties are in demand and worth the queue, so for the love of flaky pastry get in line for croissants, cruffins and more. For crullers – deep-fried New York-style donuts – get to Moon Cruller which orbits its older sibling Lune Croissanterie on Fitzroy's Rose Street.
This is a happy space to indulge sweet tooth cravings. From lolly bag cakes to brown sugar bubble tea croissants, LuxBite has dessert desires covered so go all out in this patisserie cafe, which blends French baking techniques with Asian flavours.
10. La Petite Crêperie
Head down Melbourne's Swanston Street and you'll find this refitted newstand is a permanent feature for take-way French crêpes. Homemade batter sizzles on professional hot plates before being drizzled with sweet (and savoury) toppings. Délicieuses!
