Maroussia's Dumplings - Babka AUD15
Maroussia's Dumplings filled with potato or mushrooms, panfried & served with dill and sourcream - (20 minute wait) AUD15
Well worth the 20 minute wait, these delightfully chewy dumplings were filled with a creamy potato puree laced with cheese, or earthy mushroom. Eaten with a dollop of cold sourcream and a sprig dill, it is a carb-lovers dream.
One of the best places in Fitzroy, nay Melbourne, for breakfast, brunch, or indeed coffee and cake. Waiting in line for a table or takeaway is the sweetest torture!

- Cafe hit parade - by Dani Valent, The Age, September 12, 2010 Next time you curse the Punt Road traffic, save a tiny barb for Babka: the caramelised pear cake is partly to blame. A sweet almond pastry case is filled with rum-spiked vanilla custard and caramelised lemon-and-cinnamon poached pears. It's the tart for which the phrase "worth crossing town" was coined.
