Delphi Continental Cakes - Review - Northcote

Delphi Continental Cakes in Northcote (329 High St, Northcote VIC 3070) is a nice kind of old fashioned cake shop.  While the selection is certainly limited compared to some of the mega cake shops in St Kilda I'd say the quality is equal or even better although I believe the St Kilda cake shops are more for tourists than for overall great quality.  

Probably one of the greatest things about Delphi Continental Cakes is that it is open in the evenings.  This certainly makes sense being on the Northcote high street.  Its also great for the punters who are out and about in the evenings and want something other than going to a restaurant or a pub.
What is great about Delphi Continental Cakes is that it is true cake shop.  By this I mean that it actually makes what's on the front door - it actually makes continental cakes.  The run of the mill basic and somewhat generic cake shop has its place (after all we can't splash out all the time) but bland pie and cake shops don't really satisfy the mind.
While the interior design and layout of Delphi Continental Cakes isn't going to set the pulse racing the cakes might.  There is a relatively large selection of cakes and the quality is generally very good. 
Unfortunately some of the cakes kind of look kiddish and somewhat tacky.  Rest assured they taste better than they look.
It would be nice if they included the actual names of the cakes even if they had to be in the native language.  If you find something you like its nice to know what it actually is.  It will kind of add to the authenicity of the cakes as well.  Nice for the non-cake expert such as myself.
Well, that's all from me about Delphi Continental Cakes so try and make it there for a coffee and cake if you're walking the Northcote high street. Its worth it.

In a nutshell: It does the job. Delphi Continental Cakes is open good hours and if you aren't looking for a beer it lets you grab a nice latte or expresso.
