The delicacy, balance and artisanship of Lilette has me looking at the world in a different hue afterwards every time! The best French patisserie in Melbourne I have found...even better than many I have been to in France. Although I dont live on this side of town, whenever Im nearby, I make a special point to visit. If their lemon tart and chicken & leek pie were the last things I were to taste in this lifetime, I would be mighty content.
Superb. Please keep up the good work and I hope to visit soon.
I popped in for a takeaway coffee and a muffin while I was in the area recently and was very impressed. The service was great. I was greeted warmly as soon as I walked in and the man came and held the door for me on my way out. The coffee was great and I can be fussy with coffee. Muffin was delicious and a perfect size. So many other cafes sell muffins that are far too big and not that nice. I would definitely return to Lilette next time I am in Malvern.
Newly opened for about 7 months, this authentic little French patisserie cafe is run by a couple who trained as pastry chefs and worked in Australia and abroad with some of the biggest names. Excellent service, friendly, delicious $8 mini baguettes (they are also sold plain big and small). Beautiful croissant, divine hot chocolate. Crepes are served after 2pm. The patisserie is almost always full and a steady stream of customers come and go, cakes and pastries quickly disappeared. They do take orders for functions and birthday cakes. The only drawback was a long wait for food. Or maybe it was just that afternoon. Will definitely be back.
Takeaway cappuccino and latte are beautiful. Staff is always up for a little chat.
