We discovered this wonderful bakery one night on the way to the theatre and lucky for us they were still open on the way back. I’ve never seen such a huge choice of delicious baked goods in one place. It took us ages to decide,...More

This shop was brilliant some years ago . The cakes we purchased were dry and tasted like they were made 2 months ago. The creams was sickly sweet. If you want Greek cakes go to Oakleigh! Vanilla and Nikos here we come.

We called into this unpretensious "traditional" cafe called The International Diethnes Cake Shop for a quick morning coffee and were amazed at the array of delicious cakes and pastries including a wide range of baklava and other Greek concoctions. The coffee, too, was very good...More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
