Duck inside the South Melbourne Market, where you'll find pastry chef and Parisian expatriate Agathe Kerr, baking fresh, French delicacies in an exposed pastry kitchen behind the market counter of Agathé Pâtisserie. Kerr has been delighting market-goers with authentic, homemade French pastries since 2015. Highlights of the stall include croissants fused with matcha, pandan or cafe au lait; Nutella, salted caramel and peanut caramel custard-filled cruffins; delicately layered millefeuilles and extravagant cheesecakes. Don't be dismayed if you find a line stretching through the markets — the wait is worth it and gives you time to pick from the wide selection of treats on offer.
