There's a patisserie on Lygon St, in East Brunswick that can rarely offer you a spare seat, not through lack of hospitality, but simply through lack of space. The windows lure you in, showcasing trays of glistening golden pastries. As you open the door, a warm waft of deliciousness envelopes your senses. People come, wide-eyed and empty-handed, only to leave laden with brown paper bags, brimming with croissants, breads, brioches and our greatest weakness, bombolonies, a sinful, sugary, Italian doughnut bursting with jam or custard.
Whilst the cable knit of this scarf may not offer the same stickiness and aroma of our favourite pastries, we do recommend, wrapping yourself up in it, taking a wander down Lygon Street and uncovering our pastry nirvana for yourself.
