Shortly after settling in our hotel, our friend brought us to a dessert lovers dream – Brunetti on Lygon Street. It’s open fairly late, and was very busy. You can tell it’s very popular and there’s good reason.
At first it looked as if this was part of a grocery store. It actually isn’t. There’s seating outside, and a lot more inside. As you walk in you can see the vast assortment of desserts and cakes. Definitely mouthwatering.
Since you seat yourself here, we quickly went to look for a seat before looking at all of the desserts and pastries on display.We each ordered some of their prepared desserts on display – Pear Cheese Crumble, White Chocolate Raspberry Cake, and Pistachio Torte.
I loved my cheesecake. It had some berries, and pear cooked right in, and a delicious crust. It was quite sweet, but I like it like that. The White Chocolate Raspberry Cake wasn’t as sweet as mine, but was nice and light.
They don’t just sell pastries here though. The further into the restaurant you go, you will see prepared Italian food like calzones, risotto balls (seem to be very popular here), sandwiches, and also wood oven pizzas. They also have gelato at the very back.
Now that I think about it, I’m kind of sad that I didn’t make it back. We only tried a few desserts because it was close to closing when we got there. They have other locations around the Melbourne.
