We enjoyed an orange slice with whipped cream, a plain scone and a date scone. The date scone was surprisingly delicious. They were evidently popular, as we bought the last ones.
I also had a Belgian hot chocolate. The owner said she went a bit overboard with the chocolate but I didn't mind. There was chocolate on the sides and at the bottom of my cup - no complaints at all! Just to add to the relaxing nature, you can head down and wander along the river to complete your afternoon.
2. Jam and Cream: 1 Orr St, Heidelberg Heights If you are looking for scones of all kinds, this is your place. If you are coming for tea, bring your friends and order a Nanna's Platter of ten baby scones.
They are well known for their cronuts (croissant/doughnut hybrids) and croissants. I would especially recommend the Ispahan croissant (the pink one) - it has an exceptionally floral flavour and tastes delicious.

4. Eat a Scroll: 76 Smith St, Collingwood
You can probably guess, but Eat a Scroll makes a variety of cinnamon scrolls, with flavour toppings from Nutella to cream cheese.
A lemon and blueberry scroll - you might find them stocked in various cafes!
But I get even more excited by their cruffins - a croissant/muffin hybrid. Some of their flavours are seasonal but I've enjoyed a raspberry cheesecake and seen matcha, banana and passionfruit versions.
