Sugardough Panificio and Patisserie is a Brunswick favourite, serving up sweet treats and savoury morsels in a bustling yet cosy environment. Most days the small shop front is often jam-packed with patrons huddled over thick hot chocolates and freshly-baked pastries. If it’s a warm day, check out the garden out back, you’ll find a large communal table and hopefully some sunshine.
Those looking for something savoury will enjoy the selection of panini ($7.80) made with freshly baked bread and a variety of fillings. For something a little more fancy try the generous, perhaps indulgent, vegetable and Camembert quiche ($6.90).
But when it comes to Sugardough it’s really all about cake, cake and more cake, the glass display cabinet stuffed with a mouthwatering array of pastry, strudel, tart and pie. A particular stand-out is the creme brulee ($4.80). It comes in a rich shortbread pastry and bursts with burnt caramel and smooth vanilla flavours. Chocolate lovers will be smitten with the ricotta and nutella crostata ($4.50) a rich Italian dessert tart. A lighter, fruitier option is the apple tartin ($4.80), topped with pistachio nuts and flavoured with cinnamon.
Whatever you choose, Sugardough is sure to keep your sweet tooth satisfied.
