Received this bag of snacks from a friend. It was the best nutty snacks I've ever had. Makes me want to go to the Zimt café in person and get more yumminess! See less

On arrival as they just opened we were greeted with a beautiful you need a mask. Upon saying we have exemptions, a filthy look was given by the older barista behind the counter. The only friendly face was the mask less chef in the back who greeted with a smile and good morning. Then a customer walked in minutes after us and was greeted with hellos and good mornings. Will never return to this overpriced rude place. See less

We read the positive Google reviews about Zimt Patisserie and decided to give it a try. We walked into the cafe just before 3.00pm on a Saturday afternoon. Rather than a welcome, were told by the staff in a very direct tone “we are closed”. We asked if we could buy a cake and the answer was ‘yes’ as though they were doing us a favour. Staff need a friendly reminder that when customers walk in the door, they are there to spend money in your business. With the effect that COVID has had on businesses, we were shocked to receive this kind of response. Secondly, we purchased the flourless chocolate cake and some cheesecake slices. The flourless chocolate cake was old and thick. It was not fresh and should not have been sold. The cheese cake slices tasted like we were eating butter. Both were not up to standard. I real let down in service and product. See less

Lovely place but it absolutely astounds me how places like this Cafe close at 3.00 pm on a SATURDAY, this is what's wrong with Australia, in Europe cafes are often open until after midnight. The night life is incredable. People arriving at this Cafe at 2.30 pm have 30 minutes to enjoy a coffee and cake. One would think that they could at least stay open until 5.00 0m. I bet they don't want to pay staff that extra 2 hours, people come in for breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. This is a long weekend so after lockdown you would think that cafes would stay open. See less

Disappointed with my Mothers Day platter. Ordered it based on Facebook post and sample in shop. What I got looked very different, not feminine, different cakes, different decorations on cakes, squashed together and not nicely arranged (was I expected to re-arrange?). This was despite being promised in the shop that I would get exactly the same cakes and quantities (per head) as per sample. The sample in the shop even had a lovely Mothers Day chocolate plaque which I assumed that I would be receiving seeing as they didn't say it was an optional extra. This is my second order that I have been disappointed with and I wan't particularly impressed with the response from Zimt after I emailed them. EDIT: For some reason the first of my 3 photos that accompanied this review (the photo of the pretty platter sample) has been hidden and is only visible to me when I log in to my Google account. You can see it however on the Zimt Facebook Mother’s Day platters post of 3 May 2021. Have a look and decide for yourself as to whether I received what was ordered. See less

Your cakes may be good but Laurent are better. One also does not have to eat with wooden forks and wooden spoons on paper plates, drinking coffee from takeaway cups. You blame Covid but your staff move food around with no gloves on their hands & your wooden utensils are kept outside for dust and dirt to collect on them. This is unacceptable and Vic Health may be interested. You may be saving on washing up salaries and being greedy by not reducing your prices, but Laurent has my vote. They have good coffee from cups and saucers and good food eaten on crockery plates. Professional and not money-grabbing. So long greedy. See less

What a brilliant eggless cake... just love it. Thank you so much Zimt cafe for a wonderful cake. Just a perfect cake and bonus that it was eggless. Lovely staff and chef who know what the customer need is. Thanks for making my husband 30th bday fabulous with this delicious cake. See less

Lovely cakes and pastries here. Have visited a few times. The tables were not cleaned regularly, perhaps not enough staff for a weekend morning as it was very busy. Comfortable decor although not a place you would take children, more of an adults only cafe with a very quiet subdued atmosphere. You could read the paper in peace here. See less

This Austrian patisserie has been around way before Surrey Hills became a local hot spot, serving some of the most authentic strudels in Melbourne as well as lots of gluten free goodies. I recently took my mum there for her birthday, we were treated to a high tea set of great coffee, scones with berry jam and cream, cupcakes, tarts and macarons. Loved ever bit of it! See less
