Food – Beatrix

Foodie Corner - Sweets Special

Located in an old style North Melbourne corner shop, Beatrix is the tiniest bakery,  but head down there on a Saturday morning to see the eager foodies queued out the door, and you know its size is deceiving.

Offering a variety of home style cakes and baked treats, just about everything at Beatrix has a really traditional feel to it. You can pick up everything from Anzac biscuits to rhubarb custard crumble tarts to a triple layer carrot cake to potato brioche doughnuts and the list goes on and on. In one sense, I almost feel like each item could have been made by a member of the Country Women’s Association, but then at the same time they put a modern spin on these classic cakes and make them just that bit more interesting.

My treat of choice is the Calamity Jane, which is their take on the wagon wheel. It has a big soft marshmallow filled with home made jam, sandwiched between two gingernut biscuits, coated in milk chocolate and topped with freeze dried strawberries. I guarantee you, it tastes just as good as it sounds! Every element, except for the chocolate, is made in house, and the end result is simply divine.

Their cake offering changes almost on a daily basis, so if there is something in particular you’d like to try, follow their Instagram account to see what’s in the cabinet.
