Award-winning, a French-born chef Pierrick Boyer, formerly of Le Petit Gateau, has opened his first solo eatery, a self-titled café patisserie, on Izett Street in Prahran.
A celebration of his life’s work, Boyer’s new venture fuses the delicacy of fine French patisseries with the indulgence of a modern-Melburnian brunching destination.
Pastry Chef, Boyer creates his extensive and decadent range of sweet treats all in-house, while Head Chef, Bradley Pearce – who has trained under the watchful eye of George Calombaris – has delivered a savoury menu with a twist on much-loved classics including a brioche-wrapped breakfast burger, chilli and crab scrambled eggs and an indulgent eggs benedict, complete with smoked ham hock.
The sweet menu boasts extensive dine-in and take away options including a GF sponge cake with dark chocolate, blueberry cremeux – a French term for “creamy” – and jelly jam named after Boyers 6-month old daughter, Charlotte Tiffany.
The extravagant range of tarts, croissants and cakes include Boyer’s personal favourite, the PB passionfruit brownie made with a brownie base, crunchy praline, passionfruit custard, chocolate mousse and ganache.
Let’s be honest your going to want one of everything! Go with an empty and hungry stomach and make sure you sample a range of delights. Take a friend or two and share!
The perfect NEW brunch spot in the heart of Prahran.
