Caramelised Pear and Rum Custard Tart - Babka AUD7.50
Luscious pear halves partially hidden in a rowdy rum laced custard reminding the diner of it's adult pleasures with every mouthful.
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.
