From exotic spreads to delicacies, there is something for everyone in here. The hardest part is choosing, especially when having to travel by air the next day. This place will become a regular must visit.

What can I say? My husband and I wanted to buy everything in this shop. Like literally. Definitely gives some of Paris' more modern patisseries a run for their money. A must when your visiting Melbourne (and nearby Chapel Street).

Cakes and deserts are the best but also check out the cookies and other hand made products. My favourite is the popping candy cake.

EVERYthing looks amazing, EVERY cake and dessert we've tried tastes amazing. We've been lucky enough to visit B&P several times over the last few months, and every time it has been really amazing. The worst thing is making the choice, but the staff are helpful,...More
