Situated in Little Collins, the ‘luxurious’ street of Melbourne city, the cakes in Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie are beautifully done. A ribbon is tied around its cake to make it looks like a present. Its old European-styled building with its wooden chairs and marbled floors give sitting in the cafe itself a real unique experience .  That afternoon when I ate the nicely ribboned-cake in this little bakery, the absolutely spoilt me completely immersed myself into the life of New York’ s Upper East Side.

However, if you are looking for a real treat for youself, I will still recommend Brunetti.  So far, I feel that Brunetti’s cakes are still the best in Melbourne. Laurent’s cakes are as pricey as Brunetti’s (maybe even MORE priceiy than Brunetti’s) but its cakes (although beautifully made) still could not be compared with those in Brunetti’s.  Nevertheless, good cakes can easily be found in reasonably priced- bakeries around Melbourne cities such as Bread Top, crown cafe and Maxims (its egg tarts, lao po ping and pineapple tart are the best!) =)

If you are thinking of trying Laurent, there are 13 outlets in Melbourne; namely Albert park, Brighton, Clayton, Chatstone, Camberwell, Doncaster, East Melbourne, Toorak and Hawthorn.
