Almond Danish AUD3.60, Coffee Macaron AUD2 - Noisette

I have always had a fancy for a nice bit of French pastry, and had been wanting to try it out after reading the review in Epicure for a while now. What better time than a crisp Saturday morning to make the trek to Port Melbourne for a taste.


We were greeted by a cosy little cafe where some staff even spoke French. A good sign of things to come.


The coffee, di Manfredi, was smooth and rich. The almond danish had a luscious custard sitting on a buttery puff pastry that had a bit of bite to it, rather that the crisp kind that just falls to bits. This was followed by our sausage roll that was topped with linseed which gave it a nice nutty flavour. As some layers of crisp pastry fell away from the top, you could definitely taste the aroma of a good pastry!

- Pleasure and pain, by John Lethlean, Epicure, The Age, May 12, 2007 "My great-grandfather started to bake at home in 1825 for his neighbour. Word got around and such was the demand for his bread that he started the first bakery of the Menards, which began the curse of the bread."
