The French Lettuce Patisserie and Bakery - Fitzroy

The French Lettuce Patisserie and Bakery  in Fitzroy proudly parades itself as being 'Voted Melbourne's Best Vanilla Slice'.  Having run past it many lunchtimes I thought it was about time that they were put to the test.

Now in Melbourne there are some iconic patisseries.  However, a winning vote is not to be sneezed at, especially one coming from the Melbourne Age.  I am more than happy to report that the French Lettuce Patisserie definitely deserves its accolades.  I wish that this was a more of a cafe so more people could experience their vanilla slice.  However, this more of a pickup and go bakery. If you do make the journey you'll be looking forward to the next time you can get there.  This place is that good.

I wish I could describe how good the vanilla slice really is.  Put it this way, while writing this I wish I could be there right now.
The other cakes are equally as good.  The French Lettuce Patisserie really does shame most of the cake shops in St Kilda.  
If you are anywhere near the city and can make it to Fitzroy I really do suggest you try coming here.  I don't usually recommend make special trips to any restaurant or cafe but this is one of those few times. Enjoy.
