Azuma Patisserie

Hidden away in the Regent Place shopping centre, just around the corner from Event Cinemas on George St, is the Azuma Patisserie. This little bakery cafe offers a great twist on the usual post-movie 'coffee-and-cake' it's Japanese.

It offers a mix of traditional and modern Japanese treats including a range of freshly baked chiffon cakes, green tea tarts, ice-cream, and (my personal favourite) red-bean-paste-filled buns. You can accompany your dessert with a matcha latte, soba cha (Japanese buckwheat tea) or green tea. For the less adventurous, standard coffee and tea is also available.

The man behind it all - Kimitaka Azuma

Azuma Patisserie is the latest in a family of highly successful Japanese restaurants. It has two sophisticated older sisters Azuma Kushiyaki (right next door) and Azuma Chifley both of which regularly receive rave reviews. Azuma Chifley was awarded a hat in the 2010 Good Food Guide. Then there are the more relaxed, noodle-focused brothers Ton Ton Chifley and Ton Ton Regent.

Unfortunately, the sterile shopping centre atmosphere creeps into this place a bit, which detracts from the enjoyment of settling in for a chat. But despite that minor complaint, it's well worth a visit next time you're in the area and looking for a treat.
