The local french bakery cafe

The most important reason for cycling on a Saturday morning, is the breakfast that follows. My favorite (and best value) cafe in Port Melbourne has to be Noisette on Bay St. It is a little French bakery that is always packed with locals ordering freshly backed products and coffees.

My favorite item on the menu has to be the ham and cheese toastie, or as the french call it croque monsieur. A cafe latte or two is always required to wash one of these bad boys down (plus half of my partners). The combination of creamy bechamel inside, grilled cheese on the outside, salty ham and two thick pieces of brioche are a winning combination.

Sometimes, if you want to get a little more fancy you can get a mini chocolate brioche stick to dip in your coffee. Plus they have the best chocolates ever and a full range of sweets including macaroons. Oh well, can't wait to the next weekend.
