Unlike Messina and N2, Cow & The Moon offers paired back, simple, Italian style gelato. In 2014, this small cafe and gelateria was named the world’s best gelato, trumping Italian competitors at the Gelato World Tour title in Rimini, Italy. The strawberry and balsamic is perhaps their most ‘out there’ flavour but offers a really […]
Tucked away at the very top end of the Queen Victoria Building, The Tea Room provides pure escapism from the cities hustle and bustle. Although I have walked in, I would recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment. High tea is served daily from 10am and includes a number of sandwiches, pastries and scones. Sadly, […]
If you enjoy Netflix binges and cookery shows, you may have seen Adriano Zumbo’s Just Desserts. All his pastries are works of art, right down to his zumbarons, including a buttered toast flavour. I would recommend sometimes proceeding with caution, after once eating one of his creations flavoured with miso that wasn’t my cup of […]
Two words. Watermelon. Cake. I know I mentioned this place in my Newtown Food Map, but it’s so good it deserves more than one mention. This bakery, secured my love of watermelons for eternity.
Andy Bowdy is another one of Sydney’s creative geniuses. His cakes, pastries and trifles SCREAM decadence. Think toasted meringue, chocolate, fruit, and HUGE cakes. After becoming an Instagram sensation and basically selling out every food market, Andy set up Saga, his permanent cafe in Sydney.

Well, I start to question whether we are actually friends. Each week Messina has a selection of incredible specials and you can keep up to date with […]
Katherine Sabbath is an icon of Australian cookery and her Instagram is the literal proof in the pudding. Her cake and dessert designs are wacky, colourful, unique, and super special. I had the absolute pleasure of attending a class with Katherine at The Essential Ingredient in Rozelle and learnt how to make a full English […]
It may be because of my love for the Great British Bake Off but for me, when I think of Vienna, I think of Sacher Torte. It was therefore essential that I found some time to indulge. This apricot and chocolate cake did not disappoint, and neither did the opulent surroundings! The Sacher Hotel & […]
When does a holiday not need a fabulous brunch menu? Never! ULRICH offers a brilliant menu at breakfast time including continental options. I chose the breakfast board which had eggs, bread, cheeses, and meats, alongside granola and yoghurt and my friend opted for baked eggs. The coffees here are also fantastic, although I opted for […]
Vienna benefits hugely from its geographical location with Austria bordering, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, and Italy. So where better than Vienna for a pizza? (Other than Italy) We needed somewhere quick between a morning in the Belvedere Museum, to take selfies in front of Kustav Klimt’s The Kiss, and out flight home to […]
