La Belle Miette

One of the best French patisseries in Melbourne’s CBD, La Belle Miette is known for its premium macarons, bonbons and dragées (chocolate coated nuts and fruits). Translating to “beautiful crumb” or a “small beautiful thing” in French, their name perfectly describes their delightful bite-sized offerings. Using premium ingredients, pure fruit purees and high-quality vanilla beans to make their macarons, they also use chocolate from premium producers and butter from an Australian dairy producer that utilises traditional European methods. Why not treat yourself to a Parisian inspired afternoon tea at one of their beautiful locations?

Lune Croissanterie offers a croissant experience unlike any other. They pride themselves on delivering only the best French viennoiserie baked with precision, care and appreciation for the craft – which is why each croissant takes three days to develop its unique flavour and texture. We recommend trying their Traditional French Croissant, Pain Au Chocolat, the Persian Love Cake as well as a Cheese or Vegemite Escargot. And, to make things even better, Lune is always creating limited-edition items or bringing back vintage cult classics. To get your hands on one of these buttery sensations act quick – they sell out faster than you can say croissant.
