I love writing, art, music, food, finance, hanging out with my favourites & being a productive night owl.

Want to feel like you're in France? Read this to see how
Strawberry Cream is a rare patisserie and cafe in the Darlinghurst area, Victoria Street to be precise. To clarify that, although there is an abundance of bakeries in Darlinghurst, I can't think of any there which left me feeling as satisfied. When you walk into Strawberry Cream, you'll unlikely be impressed by its modest interior. You will most likely be extremely impressed by the lovely service, gorgeous exterior and delightfully affordable prices. With the quality of food at Strawberry Cream, you'll certainly be able to choose an enjoyable experience with value for money.
I highly recommend you sit outdoors at Strawberry Cream, as it genuinely feels like you are in a Parisian cafe sipping away at your coffee and eating your dessert. Speaking of dessert, depicted below is a chocolate mousse in the form of a bunny. The red outside was a little bit like a jelly baby or snake in the sense that it was slightly chewy. I believe that was intentional and it tasted good. The strawberry mousse within was absolutely to die for, I cannot recommend it more. The ears were made of white chocolate. It was so cute, I almost felt bad dismembering its body.
Below is an Apple Strudel. Although I'm not usually a fan of sweet pastry dishes, this tasted quite nice. I could actually taste the apple in it, which I unfortunately must note as a benefit rather than a feature due to the lack of obvious fruit tastes in other "fruit" dishes.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Strawberry Cream. With lovely service and such a gorgeous pseudo-Parisian experience with great value for money, there is definitely no other choice in bakeries around the Darlinghurst area for me.
The only downside that I can even think of is that Strawberry Cream did not accept Eftpos when I went there, so you need to pay by cash. There is an automatic teller machine (ATM) next door, so it's nothing to worry about. There's ample parking and the location is a short and pleasant stroll from many places in the city.
