Zimt Patisserie in Surrey Hills is an Austrian bakery / cafe and home to some of the most delicious cakes and puff pastry in Australia! Zimt Patisserie Bakery Café is the lifetime dream of Michael and Sue Leidler. Michael moved on from his family business to establish his own reputation as a one of the fine pâtissiers of Melbourne.
You can also buy products to take home and enjoy later. All products are carefully made with the finest ingredients and under Michael's strict supervision. This ensures the quality of Zimt is maintained. Michael is the head pastry cook of an experienced and talented team.
Zimt is the perfect place to catch up with friends over a deliciously rich chocolate milkshake or to share some decadent cakes. The High Tea served here is sensational and of great value. I brought a gift voucher for Mother's Day and my mother in law Maureen had such a great experience sampling a selection of savoury and sweets that she returned with her sister!
The couches and bench seating create a relaxed and comfortable environment, the aromatic smells of the bakehouse seeping through to the café and make it a pleasant experience. You can even see the pasty chefs working hard behind the counter! The staff are friendly, Sonja Quarmby was prompt to ensure we received our lunch within minutes of ordering. The wait here is never long, great if you are on a lunch break.
Enjoyed coffee and cake there. Reminder of my Austrian heritage. Ordered a lot of cake there for my 80th birthday celebration; much appreciated by all!
Pleasant atmosphere and good service.
I warmly recommend it!
