My visit to Brunetti was made due to the reviews I read about the place.
We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was fairly busy.
Coffee was ok.. I had a better one that came free with breakfast though..
I ordered a cannoli and eclaire - couldn't tell the difference from any other cafe in quality. Woolworths eclaires would give it a run for money actually.
Brunetti is a Melbourne institution so I've been told.. But I think any other patisserie business could come in and take over, easily, if Brunetti's quality diminishes or doesn't change to reflect the new breed of eaters.
Obviously because this place is trending one might be tempted to try it to find out what the hype is about.
However, if you are tight on a budget and you can find another patisserie for a coffee and cake - go there. My visit wasn't unpleasant or awful, I just don't get the hype for what you get.
