DSC01128It was a cold sunny day in Melbourne and I was in Carlton to watch a game of Aussie Rules Football. The stadium was still closed, it was lunchtime and I was hungry. I don’t know this part of the city well and so I went walking in search of food.

Joggers and cyclists exercised following the paths in the park. I passed the cemetery. DSC01125 The next busy road was Lygon Street, but not the part that is famous for the cafes and restaurants. I noticed a corner shop that looked like a café. Can you imagine how delighted I was to have discovered an authentic French style bakery – Filou’s Patisserie?filous_patisserie

I eagerly entered to find a queue of people patiently waiting in the small interior, quietly deciding on what to choose, before it was their turn for service by the busy staff. Glass cabinets were filled with delicious food typical of a French Patisserie. There were Macaroons, bread of all types, lemon tarts, croissants of course, spinach pies, Madeline’s, chocolate cakes, and more. I bought a savory vegetarian croissant and wandered back to the football stadium.

    Devastated to discover that my favourite patisserie is still closed down due to red tape after a car slammed into the front of the shop in November last year. VERY SAD indeed.
