One of my favourite places to visit in Melbourne is the iconic Brunetti’s Cafe on Lygon Street. They have the most amazing cakes and biscuits and their coffee is so smooth. The Italians really know how to indulge! They excel in Italian style coffee, cake, gelato and even their savouries. They also have a lovely lunch and breakfast menu.
This week, I spent some time in Melbourne for a World Vision blog ambassador conference and then a few days hanging out with my Mum (you can see some more pictures of the trip on my instagram). Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the Lygon Street store, but we were pleased when we found a smaller store to visit in the CBD.
We were tempted to buy cakes… completely forgetting we hadn’t had real breakfast yet… but we thought we better be partially controlled, so instead we bought french toast with ham and cheese and Mum took back a box of obligatory biscuits for the family in Sydney.
I was surprised to find out that their coffee is actually roasted by Di Bella Coffee. According to the waitress, the beans are their own and roasted by Di Bella. Brunetti’s coffee is divinely light, smooth and creamy in taste – really enjoyable to drink.
There are some very cute (but quite fat) little birds that hang out at Brunetti’s. I loved them, Mum thought they were pests. If I were a bird, I would hang out for Brunetti’s cakes too – they really aren’t silly!It was a nice spot to stop and watch the trams go by, listen to the birds sing and see the big clock tick.
How cool is this tram?! So BRIGHT! I have no idea what the design is suppose to be, do you?
