Grab a Tray, Tongs and Tucker
It happened by chance that we needed to go to Bonbons. Months ago my daughter had picked out a birthday cake she wanted from the Airport West shopping centre. When we went to pick it up there were none left. We remembered buying delicious cupcakes and cheesecakes from Bonbons, so decided to try them for a birthday cake. They have a range that satisfies the desires of children and more sophisticated tastes of adults.
We almost went for the mouse at the back but eventually settled for the berry cake
They were a little more expensive than Michel's but the cakes are packaged in a box almost too good to throw out. My daughter carried it proudly to the car.
Here's THE box
The individual serve cakes are generous but too good to share unless it's a half and half trade! I think Tobler's Own cheesecake is meant to be Toblerone but maybe I'm wrong. What would you choose: chocolate walnut fudge, New York baked cheesecake, lemon meringue tart or macadamia cheesecake? For the indecisive ones amongst us (like us), why not sample them all? If you spread them out over the week the calories don't count…right?
They are $5.90 each though so more of an adult treat perhaps. The kids don't agree but then again they're not paying or sharing! There are Elmo cupcakes for them if they twist your arm. Click here for the featured cake selection.
Don't think about the food coloring
I have started to see these Bonbon franchises all over the place. Bonbons Bakery, the latest Asian-inspired (Chinese backed) self-serve bakery chain, has hit the Australian market. It opened 25 bakery cafes in 2013-14 with plans for 300 stores throughout Australia. In the next few years there could be in excess of 1000 stores throughout Asia.
According to the owner, while it might seem strange that this franchise has started in Australia, not Asia, Asians apparently prefer Australian brands to those that are Chinese-owned and operated.
Near enough to healthy and half the price
Bonbons Bakery make a point of being different to other bakeries. Bonbons Bakery, is marketed at an Australian and international target market, with an eat-in cafe concept and 'good coffee' on tap. The kids love the (literally) pick your own lunch concept. Make time to do the circuit a few times.
How does it work? Grab a tray
Grab some tongs Choose your favourite freshly baked buns Bring the tray to the counter & order a really good coffee
Bonbons Bakery is a 'Grab and Go' Asian and Western style bakery and coffee shop often seen overseas. It specialises in freshly baked bread based products baked fresh on premises every day. 99% of ingredients are Australian made. They have unique combinations like cold hot dog buns, individual pizzas, sausage rolls, croissants, donuts, Danish pastries and more. The breads are very soft and sweet.
They also sell hot and cold beverages, cakes and treats. Bonbons sources its own freshly roasted coffee blend, supporting fair trade growers of coffee beans, teas and produce.
They pride themselves on having coffee at least as good as their bakery section. Their brand Bonn is roasted fresh in Melbourne every week. Bonn Coffee is premium, high grade & exclusive 4 bean Arabica blend with a smooth and classic European taste.
They also have a delicious range of Gourmet Coffees to purchase at selected stores. To find out which stores offer our gourmet coffee range please check here.
