Today I visited LuxBite South Yarra.
I think I have found found cake-y heaven.
LuxBite in South Yarra has the most tempting display of cakes and macarons all within a cute and colourful cafe on Toorak Road in South Yarra.
I tried the iconic Lolly Bag Cake which combines six classic Australian lollies; Bananas, Freckles, Musk sticks, Spearmint leaves, Jaffas and Redskins.
I also thoughtfully selected from the glass fronted macaron cabinet. My final choices were; Red Velvet, peanut butter and jelly, hazelnut, Milo and sour watermelon. All of them good, but the Red Velvet was probably my favourite.
The real miracle is how I managed to choose at all.
Coffees started at $3.50. Today I ordered a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate and my companion had Iced-Chocolate. They were both delicious. My hot choc was accompanied by a little jug of salted caramel sauce for me to add at my discretion. Turns out I am not very discreet, I added the lot and loved every silky mouthful.
It is a big call, but I think these are the best macarons I have tasted. The filling was creamy, smooth and full of flavour and the macaron melted in my mouth. Sorry other macarons, I have a new love.
I recommend a visit.
