Hausfrau is a cute bakery cafe styled with kitsch 50s-style laminate, enamel jugs and crockery of bright blooms which serves an array of savoury and sweet treats as well as selling loaves of bread. Its warm cosiness was very popular when we popped in for a movie post-mortem so we had to wait a while before securing a table on a Sunday afternoon.

It’s the perfect location for an afternoon nibble and general gossip – flaky mini sausage rolls, a pastry snail, cute citrussy cupcake and a corn cake with tomato relish. And if you’re a true hausfrau, you can even buy a hausfrau canvas shopping bag ($4.50) or apron ($20)!

Update January 2011: Hausfrau has now opened another branch in Albert Park – check it out here.
