See the Full Monty
Every shopping centre has one, or even two. A patisserie that is. What, literally is a patisserie? It's a shop where pastries and cakes are sold.

What you see is what you get.

Monty's is more than just that. You will find a large range of pastries and cakes, but also cheesecakes, tarts, slices, cup-cakes and many more tasty goodies.

Take your pick.

Monty's Cafe & Patisserie is in the Lilydale Marketplace and is one of eight eateries in the marketplace and is one of the most popular venues.

Must be lunchtime.

What looked simple delicious was an array of muffins, just waiting to be warmed and eaten.


If you are looking for something a little more substantial, you have the choice of pies or sausage rolls. Ready-made sandwiches are always available as fresh or toasted.

Pies for every taste.

Feeling thirsty? Then this is the place to be. Hot or cold your thirst will be sated.

Hot beverages centre on their coffee, sit in or take away. During the recent lockdown, when take-away only was available, I noticed queues regularly formed at Monty's for takeaway coffee.

Several varieties of teas are also on the menu, as well as hot chocolate.

If cold beverages is your want, you can have iced tea or coffee. Milkshakes, smoothies and soft drinks round out the drinks menu.

More choices.

A selection of ready to go cakes for a special occasion look particularly tempting.

They look delicious.

Monty's motto is "The Local's Favourite," and judging by the patronage, it's a true statement.

Eating in.

The best time to see the full Monty is around lunchtime every day.
