The verdict

They’ve been filling our bellies with sweet deliciousness for 40 years from their iconic location in The Rocks, and have opened their second location in Waterloo. Here you'll be able to pick up handmade pastries, tarts, cakes and chocolates, as well as a little something-something for lunch too (did someone say sausage rolls and pies?!).

Inside this wonderful smelling shop (it must be all the croissants), you'll most likely find co-owner and Master Patissier Jean-Michel Raynaud busily working away creating some of the best desserts in Sydney. If you're in need of a celebratory cake, or just want to eat one of this city's prettiest cakes, you can't go past The Goya, which is a raspberry mousse cake lines with layers of passionfruit cremeux and the Zulu, which is a super decadent chocolate mousse cake with salted caramel and chocolate shortbread. Umm, yum?!

They'll also be serving up Little Marionette coffee, salads and sandwiches alongside all the sweetness.
