From all that cafe hopping I did in Melbourne, you can imagine the amount of cake that went into my stomach. They were all good, mind you, not those that make you feel overwhelmed after eating.
One lovely cafe I visited is Monarch Cakes. Monarch Cakes has a long history that dates back to more than 75 years ago. The interior is old but therein lies its charm and it is so wonderfully unpretentious. Shortly after we got ourselves a seat, it started raining outside. It felt so nice to be sipping a hot drink and accompanying it with a sweet treat in that cold weather.
I had a poppy cake! By the time we left, the rain had stopped.
