Review : Brunetti

214 Flinders Lane

Monday – Thursday (7am – 9pm)

Friday (6am – Midnight)
Saturday (8am – Midnight)
Sunday (8am – 7pm)

Buggles had been pestering me to visit Brunetti since our arrival in Melbourne, in fact she has been pestering me since our last visit to Melbourne a few years back.
Apparently people had been raving about the cakes & other 'delights' on we visited the Flinders Lane store to pick up some dessert for later.

We ordered a Citrus Tart, a Strawberry Tart & two Ricotta filled pastries.
The Citrus tart had no citrus flavour at all & was very disappointing, a pastry shell filled with flavourless yellow goo.
Buggles said the Strawbery tart was ok, but not exceptional.
I quite liked my Ricotta pastry, it had lots of citrus peel in it & had a nice lemony flavour.
Buggles quite enjoyed her pastry, but it was a little tight on filling.

Based on our experience, don't know what all the Brunetti fuss is about.

I love ricotta pastries- but shame about the rest of disappointing stuff!

It was a shame, Buggles had been wanting to visit for so long.

Brunettis is good for a nice panino for lunch and some of the pastries are nice but I just find most of their cakes taste of sugar and not much else. Bad coffee too.

We had been told by many that Brunetti's was a Melbourne "must do" foodie experience.I guess we were disappointed by the reality

I have heard mixed reports about this place. Guess I will have to go there myself and make up my own mind.
