Lune Croissanterie, Fitzroy Reviews
Just a small signage outside the cafe welcomes you to one of the most contrast-y interior for a cafe that I have seen around Melbourne. Modern, precise and sterile comes to mind when trying to explain the ambient of the interior space of this cafe. A line and the buttery smell of pastries greets you at the door. Fortunately servers are quite efficient in servicing the line making sure you get served fairly quickly. Next would be when you realize seats are really difficult to come by. They have left the middle of the cafe completely empty, maybe as walkway, so sitting areas are only by the walls. And they are benches with little corner tables as dining table. So, if you're coming here with a group, dining in would be quite a challenge. However most importantly, the parties. So there are about 10 main selections of pastries available (on the day that I visited). I managed to try about 8 of those. And I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at how buttery and close to perfect those pastries were. They came in a very beautiful cardboard box. Didn't take too long from the time your place your orders. Same can be said about the coffees. Will definitely visit again soon.
Nice flaky croissants which are hard to beat! Highly recommend the ham and gruyere croissant. There are plenty of sweet options too if you're more of a sweet tooth. Only criticism of the place is that service could be a tad bit faster to accommodate the sheer amount of patrons visiting the place.
Beautiful pastries, lovely coffee. Be sure to get in early to avoid waiting in a line that goes around the block. If there's space, pull up a seat and watch the pastry getting made. The staff are friendly, professional and quick at getting through the lines. Thoroughly recommend the fig Danish - it's one of the best pastries I have ever had.
Allegedly the "best croissant in the world". Queued half an hour for it. Legend has it that the bakery was founded by an aerospace engineer. Hence the croissants are made with precision. Dough is flattened by machine, measured by ruler before cutting, weighed with a machine and curled in specific manner (through my observation of the open concept industrial theme kitchen). Alas, I sanked my teeth into the fabled varnished croissant and found it to be very crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. But the missing fragrance and buttery taste did not escape my notice. All my fantasy for the legendary croissant came crashing down. For all its worth, I give it a 4 out of 5.
I've known Kate and Cam for a while. I used to go to their Elwood shop which was tinier than the current Fitzroy bakery. They are the most dedicated individuals to their craft. I have been reading unsatisfactory comments regarding waiting times. Keep in mind that these croissants take at least 3 days to bake from start to finish, and they get it to your hands FRESH from the tray. After all, they got praised by the New York Times. Who wouldn't wait for that?
