One of the things that has struck me the most about Sydney, Australia is the seemingly endless collection of cafes and bakeries. Not only does Sydney seem serious about its coffee, but the overwhelming variety of desserts, pastries, breads, tarts and treats leaves me with little else to say , except…
Here’s what’s caught my eye so far (Warning: Drooling may commence at any moment.)
Cupcakes, cakes, muffins, bars, and tortes at the Metropole Café…
And tarts, trifles and assorted treats at Nosh Box Cafe.
Now you’re probably wondering which of these many cakes I’ve tried. The truth is only ONE (so far)! Yesterday afternoon, my husband and I had some time to spend together so we went on a lunch date to the Queen Victoria Building (fabulous collection of high end shops, not to mention quite a few of the cafes above).
After splitting a modest but delicious grilled wrap sandwich, we headed up to the Old Vienna Coffee House for dessert.
Choosing from the decadent display of cakes wasn’t easy…
But we eventually settled on splitting a piece of the Sacher Torte.
Happiness on a plate!
