A few years ago Brunetti Café in Carlton moved to a bigger venue to take pride of place on Lygon Street next to the Nova cinema.

It sports a fancy look with mosaic marbled floors and mosaic counter walls, Brunetti café is worth mooching around just to check out its finery, but of course that's not why most people go. It's the sheer choice of tempting afternoon delights on display. Literally rows and rows of mini tarts, slices and cakes all wonderfully presented.

If you're a sweet tooth like me, this place is seventh heaven. There's a gelato bar which even in the dead of winter is still appealing. So if you are on a diet don't go because you won't be able to resist.

So much choice, so little time!

If you find yourself short on a birthday cake or two Brunetti has a mouth-watering selection that you have to walk past to enter into the café.

Too much cake is never enough

This café has got presentation down to an art form. As for the prices, you will pay slightly more for your slices, the birthday cakes are expensive but worth it and coffees are reasonably priced.

You never have to wait long for your coffee

If you want to stick around for dinner there is also a delicious selection of traditional Italian dishes on offer.

Brunetti cafe is always popular, with people catching up with friends and families especially with the movie loving crowd. Best time, just after the movie has started and before the next one begins.
