MELBOURNE | West Melbourne Japanese bakery and café, Fuumi Fuumi, recently opened a second location in South Yarra. I’m a fan of the original location, and was invited in to check out the new space.
It’s a brighter, sleeker space than the original, and bigger too. All the baking for both location now occurs here. On the menu, it’s a similar offering of baked goods and brunch options, with a larger focus on things that can be taken away.
There’s Fuumi Fuumi’s signature light and fluffy shokupan, available in half and fill loaves. It’s also used in the roaring assortment of toasts and sandos. The tonkatsu sando and the cheesy okonomiyaki toast are two of my favourites.
For smaller bites, it’s things like shio pan with fillings like takoyaki and yakisoba; and drum pan filled with things like chocolate, azuki, and matcha.
To drink, there’s espresso and filter coffee, along with hot and iced lattes like matcha and hojicha. The signature Fuumi coffee is an iced latte with house made honeycomb candy, sea salt cream, and caramel sauce. There’s also a selection of house sodas and mocktails. The “Summer Matcha”, a blend of matcha, yuzu jam, and soda water, is great.
