The Review

Located in the most unnoticeable alley, the rear of 285-287 Coventry Street, South Melbourne – resides the famous home of Patisserie and Boulangerie >> Chez Dré.

The layout of the cafe starts narrow with tables set on the righthand side, as I walked into the deeper end the cafe broadened with many wooden benches and some small tables set up in the dining area. The petit gâteaux display was quite an attraction, with more than a dozen of cake variations to choose from, no visitors could simply ignore the beautiful glow (glaze) on those extravagant delights.

As a hub of French-inspired sweet AND savoury delights, Chez Dré is known for their all-day brunch and iconic petit gâteaux. Coffee – tick, Brunch – tick, Dessert – tick. Why wouldn’t you want to stay there all day? Shame the street parking limit is only 2 hours, perhaps taking the public transport and a short walk can help evaporate the guilty sugar consumption on the day.

To add to the joy, the market of fresh produce is nearby calling for your inner masterchef.
