I’ve had an insanely busy week trying to organise my birthday festivities (I couldn’t turn 30 and not celebrate) that’s why I haven’t really given the blog any love this week, but in all the chaos I did manage to get out for lunch one day this week, so here is my round up of the ever popular and reliable Chez Dre.
Rear of 285-287 Coventry Street
South Melbourne Vic 3205
Chez Dre is what I’m going to call the premier Patisserie Boulangerie in Melbourne. It really is the ultimate all rounder, it has great breakfast and lunch menu’s, and also offers and amazing array of pastries and cakes.
Accessible from two different laneways off Coventry Street (use the court yard entrance if you are travelling with a stroller, I found that I couldn’t fit mine through the other entrance) you could be excused for thinking that Chez Dre would be a relative small and understated café, however what you will find is quite the opposite. It occupies quite a large and well fit out space, both inside and out, however be warned it fills up quickly at peak times and there can often be a wait time for a table.
