Like a cake ? Go straight to St Kilda

The reason for our trip to Melbourne took us to St. Kilda but while there one has to go with the flow and stop and sample the cake!

Salty sea air, beautiful architecture and a relaxed bohemian feel. There's no other suburb in Melbourne quite like it. And then there is The Cake!

In summer the beachfront is magnetic; locals and visitors walk, ride, scooter and cycle along the waterfront. Architectural relics such as the Palais Theatre and Luna Park abut contemporary designs such as the Stokehouse in a melding of old and new.

A handful of health-focused cafes sate the good intentions of an early summer morning, though there’s nothing more pleasing than sinking an icy beer over a late lunch of fish and chips along the water’s edge. The suburb has an abundance of bars and pubs pairing food with drink, from wine and cheese, to tacos and mojitos, and burgers with beers. And with locals and tourists alike winding up and down Acland Street of a warm summer evening, the atmosphere can easily turn to party vibes on a weekend – even as the foreshore remains a laid-back oasis.

And then there is the cake!

      Sorry no recipe, however you can buy this lamington on Ackland Street, St Kilda Melbourne OR in Sydney from “Tokyo Lamington” on Australia Street, Newtown.

  2. Ah this made me nostalgic for St.Kilda. We used to own a home there and spent our American summers and Christmases there..
    It is certainly a unique place, and there is nothing like a chocolate kugelhopf, from Ackland Street that’s for sure!
