Melbourne escape part 2: Laurent boulangerie patisserie

After brunch, some of us separated and decided to head their own way whilst the rest of us headed to the DFO located near the casino. Unfortunately for most of us, good bargains can hardly be seen, mainly because it was towards the end of sale season. Nevertheless, it was still great fun browsing around:)

Within 3 hours, we find ourselves on Little Collins St aka the Paris of Melbourne CBD. The lanes were filled with people sipping coffee or tea and the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans lingered. We stopped by Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie, a little sweet shop recommended by a friend.

The interior reminded me of French cafes with every hint of romance despite the number of customers the shop caters for. There's a wide array of desserts to choose from, of which, all looks temptingly good:p

Pistachio creme brulee topped with strawberry jam and biscuit crumbs~ the creme brulee was superb but not so much could be said about the macaron. It lacked crisp although it was moist.

Bora bora double layer mousse cake~ an eye candy piece. Lovely colours and not overly sweet:)

306 Little Collins St
Melbourne, 3000
