Brunetti is the most stylish cafe you can imagine! Every aspect of the design including the artistically tiled floors, the timber tables, comfy chairs and the suitably attired staff in crisp black and white screams STYLE! The coffee is excellent as you would expect and the range of savoury and sweet, delicious! It is always bustling so go there for... More

this place is always very full of people because their coffee, cakes and ice creams are to die for. The girls behind the coffee counter could drop their attidue a little very rude only go their cause the coffee as i said is great.

Great cakes and pastries. That's a no brainer. They'll certainly put papas in Sydney out of business. Actually everything is picture perfect and tastes great with no disappointments. I give it a 3 rating as the staff while nice were really dumb. I needed savoury, beverages and pastries. I was told to order at 3 separate counters and pay 3... More

My go to place for buying birthday cakes - they are to die for. Service is great and the coffee is very good. They have smaller bite sized cakes and slices so you don't feel so guilty - but have 2 or 3 as it's so hard to choose.

Came across this place after the main lunch time and were amazed by the selection and quality of the offering. We went in just for a coffee and stayed and ate more than we should have, as it was so nioce. Atmosphere on a Sunday with many family groups was also just great, it was crowded but not a problem...

This shop is always very busy but well worth the visit. They have so many different cakes, deserts as well as lunch. Something to suit everyone's tastes.

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
