Dolcetti Location: 223 Victoria St West Melbourne, VIC 3003 Contact: 03 9328 1688 Seating just a handful of customers, pint-sized Dolcetti is a small Sicilian pastry and cake shop with enough charm to win over even the slightest of sweettooths. While the shop does do a few savoury goods (think soups and arvo tea), sweet treats are definitely the main deal here, so it’s pretty hard to go by the beautifully decorated mini cheesecakes, strawberry and pistachio tarts and fruity danishes encased in the glass cabinet to the front. Things get a little tricky though when you spot the platters of biscuits encrusted with nuts on the top counter. They’re impossible to resist, and you’re guaranteed to want to take at least one of these babies home.
Operator25 Location: 25 Wills Street, Melbourne CBD Contact: 03 9670 3278 Situated in a heritage-listed building tucked away off Latrobe Street, Operator25 is a bright, open space, with brick and modern rustic finishings throughout. The ceilings are high and the airy expanse adopts an almost warehouse feel, with the communal tables and warm tones injecting hits of cosiness into the space. It’s a lovely escape on a hot Summer’s day.
