Le Petit Gateau

Le Petit Gateau is tucked away in my favourite part of the city, and serves one of my favourite cake in town. We stopped by for a quick dessert after lunch one day at, you guessed it, my suggestion.

Lemon Tart – $8.50

Starting things on a simpler note, we ordered the lemon tart. This is such a classic dessert, and I loved Le Petit Geteau’s interpretation. The pastry was buttery and crumbly, and the lemon curd was tangy and silky smooth. Although nothing ground breaking, this is as good as lemon tarts can be imo.

Brownie and Passionfruit Chocolate Gateau – $9.90

The precision of this cake never fails to blow me away, just look at how crisp the layers all are! The flavour profile certainly lives up to expectation, with chocolate brownie, passionfruit curd, and milk chocolate mousse layered on top of one another, and then the whole thing is covered with dark chocolate glaze, and topped with a mango jelly.

Five ingredients isn’t all that crazy when it comes to French patisserie I don’t think, however, these five elements all work in harmony, and brings the best out of one another. The tartness of the passionfruit curd and mango jelly balances out the richness of chocolate in its three different textures so well, making it a must order every time I visit!

There are still many more cakes and pastries I want to try out from Le Petit Gateau, it always takes me so much self control to not order a couple more to take home when I leave the store. But hey, given its accessible location, I’ll be sure to go back!

How to get there:
Le Petit Gateau is on Little Collins Street, which is less than 10 minutes walk away from Melbourne Central.
