Laurent Bakery are known for their cakes and hot chocolates so when we were at Doncaster Westfield, we just HAD to pop by and get our sweets fix. Located in the shopping centre, there’s seating inside the store and outside and it does get busy! So if you can find a table, definitely do not give it up.
The hot chocolate here is smooth, rich and chocolaty.
After a night of burgers for dinner, we decided to drop by Brunetti in Carlton to satisfy our sweet tooth. As we waited for Big L to arrive, Mr Angry Asian and I went around and picked which cakes we wanted because, well, who can ever say no to cakes! There’s a few Brunetti around Melbourne and Carlton is the original and the newly renovated spot (moved to another area) makes it absolutely breathtaking. There’s not that many seats around so be sure to stalk the tables until you find a spot for your tooshies.
Had a badminton session with the girlies and of course a catch up isn’t complete until we stuffed our faces at brunch. We went for the option of ‘what’s the closest brunch place’ and thanks those tech-savvy girlies, we were at the kettle black. Like every other brunch place in Melbourne, the routine was the same, you go up to the front, give them your name and how many people in your crew/gang/squad (whatever you all call them these days) and loiter around in front until a table is free and your name gets called out. We were told it was going to be a wait of 35 minutes but some groups didn’t show up when their names were called so we ended up only waiting for 10 minutes (SCORE!).
