Death by chocolate? Sounds heavenly. With its fantastic location just a few happy skips from South Yarra station, you’ll instantly cure any bad day with a trip to the Baker’s Bench from 1-5pm. Surround yourself with good vibes and the therapeutic smell of baked goods at this bespoke boutique bakery where eggs are free range from the Mornington Peninsula and chocolate is nothing short of Belgian Couverture.
Taste the slice that started it all—the Almond Ganache Torte—the ultimate chocolatey goodness created by founder and baker Isabelle Bach whose partner inspired her by saying, “If no one’s making your perfect dessert, why not make it yourself?”
Surely you can schedule a Sunday each month to treat yourself to a delectable dessert degustation cum high tea sesh where Isabelle experiments with new bakes every session. Otherwise, they’ve even got a 24-hour cake’line for “emergencies”.
The best part? After you’re finished with your cure-all cake, you even get to devour your edible Callebaut chocolate spoon!
