I love a good neighbourhood bakery, so I was disappointed with my taste-test of Nicholson Street Baker. On the basis of its cheerful orange awning, RM and I had a brief morning tea there and sampled a dry chocolate cupcake and a sturdy apple and walnut muffin containing minimal fruit and nuts. The best of the bunch was ‘Kylie’s famous’ Hummingbird cake – it was the right texture and was smothered in a nice cream cheese icing, but it wasn’t so good that it deserved any sort of fame.
NOT: Nicholson Street Baker, 706 Nicholson St, Carlton North
