As you all know, I’m a huge cake snob, so when my friend on Instagram @foodismylifemelbourne told me there’s a cake shop in Melbourne that sells the best cakes that he has ever eaten, I booked flights to Melbourne asap and went with him to check it out.
Beatrix is a cute cake shop/cafe in North Melbourne, that sells a huge range of sweet treats and also savoury food such as gourmet ciabatta filled rolls, I definitely want to try their savoury items when I come back to Melbourne.
When I arrived at Beatrix, I was so impressed with their delicious range of cakes and slices, I really wanted to eat them all. My main goal of the visit was to try their their strawberries and cream cheesecake, because I am obsessed with cheesecake.
I ended ordering two slices of cake, I chose the strawberries and cream cheesecake and the cocoa sour cream layer cake. I really wanted to order a third slice of cake, but I knew I couldn’t stomach it.
The strawberries and cream cake was amazing, the texture was so creamy and delicious, it was definitely love at first bite! Each bite of this cake brought me so much happiness. (I actually think I was having a Meg Ryan moment in “When Harry Met Sally”).
The cocoa and sour cream cake was so moist and chocolately and not heavy at all. I also liked the raspberries in the cake too, unfortunately I was too full half way through and I had to get the rest for take away.
Leaving Beatrix was a REALLY sad moment for me, I just felt like I had broken up with a lost love, I knew that I would not have another chance to eat their cakes for a while, I really wished I lived in Melbourne.
Now as I browse their Instagram page, I feel so sad because I miss their cakes and really wish that one day they’ll open up a shop in Sydney or I can visit Melbourne again some day soon.
Beatrix cakes is now officially my new favourite cake shop.
Beatrix is located at:
688 Queensberry Street North Melbourne (corner of Lothian Street)
