The sweeter things
After we had dined at a lovely little Italian Restaurant for lunch on Saturday afternoon, daughter and our friends said this was a must place to go and visit while we were in Melbourne.
So off we went,... peering through the front window attracted my attention with the most amazing cakes and I felt like a small child in a candy store.
Into Brunetti, we walked which is one of the most iconic places to indulge in delicious Italian style coffee, decadent cake from the Pasticceria, delicious gelato or a tempting savoury from the Paninoteca.
To be honest though, lately we have made a decision to forgo eating sugar, after reading the book, Pure White and Deadly by John Yudkin. A treat for me is a small piece of dark chocolate occasionally when I am feeling like something to eat after dinner.
But every so often it is nice to just have one day off a week when it does not matter - so today was the day.
The macarons and fancy cakes all looked almost too pretty to eat and deciding which ones we would taste was a dilemma.
I opted for a lemon gelato, the intense creamy flavour was really delicious
This is the perfect place to visit especially if you have a sweet tooth.
I wish you a happy weekend
