A trip to Brunetti is always on my "to do" list when visiting Melbourne. Delicious coffee and scrumptious selection of cakes and slices. Close to tram stops so public transport is an easy option.

The sweets are really delicious. We were speechless as they were that good. The coffee also was very good and enjoyed everything there. It was an evening and was a bit crowded too.

Gotta try it!!! Reasonably priced, and great way to experience what an Italian espresso bar is like. A little difficult to get a seat during the busy periods but well worth it. Great food and amazing coffee!

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
