A little piece of Paris in Port Melbourne
Walking into this little pātisserie on Bay Street is like walking into a French foodie fantasy. Upon entering, you might find yourself almost overwhelmed with the array of freshly baked bread, pastries, petit fours, and savoury filled baguettes.

A French Foodie Fantasy
A large window at the back of the café lets you see into the kitchen where all the culinary magic happens. It's easy to spend hours over a bowl of café au lait and a pain au chocolat watching the bakers create marvellous things. I find that watching them manipulate couverture chocolate is particularly mesmerising.

Noīsette is a favourite morning coffee spot for Port Melbourne locals, as well as a great weekend brunch spot for locals and visitors alike. It's rare to walk past without noticing a line of people ordering with the delightful Francophone staff at the counter. Lunch time during the week can get a bit hectic, as people compete for the daily made filled baguettes and rolls. I usually leave my baguette eating for the weekends, where I like to linger over a smoked salmon and salad filled flavour trip.

Considering the excellent quality of the food at Noīsette, the prices are very reasonable, and the service and atmosphere are authentic and warm. Keep an eye out for the house made marshmallows, the green tea variety are really special.

An overwhelming array
