This adorable dessert shop is very sleek and extremely sweet. Their small display of treats is made up mostly of macarons, made with incredible care by French owner Josephine. They also do tarts and the occasional biscuit, but with intriguing flavours like Earl Grey, gingerbread and smoked milk chocolate, the macaron is the star of this sweet show!

You cant go baking delicious doughnuts and cupcakes without serving sensational coffee to accompany them. Either somebody told Sweet Evelyn or they figured it out themselves, because they do both brilliantly. This adorable micro-bakery offers indoor, courtyard and sidewalk seating or you can take your sweet spread to the park across the road.

Green Refectorys dessert display might be the most tantalising on Sydney Road. Their homemade cheesecakes, carrot cake, chocolate mud cake and flourless orange cake haunt the daydreams of locals. This place is busy and small, so you may have trouble finding a seat at peak times; but if youre taking away, youre in luck because the cake cabinet is only two steps from the door.

Pantheon Cakes is deliciously old school. This family-owned Greek bakery isnt at all trendy, but nobody wants it to be. Since the 80s, theyve been doing traditional Greek biscuits, slices and a variety of baklava pastries all by the book and all scrumptious. Grab a mixed box and bring it to your next dinner party, brunch or picnic!
