MELBOURNE | International Cakes is a cafe in Melbourne’s Greek precinct on Lonsdale street that’s known for its assortment of Greek cakes and pastries.
Think things like galatuboriko, baklava, halva, loukimi, almond coconut slices, and vanilla slices. It’s not just Greek cakes either – there’s a wide assortment of other cakes here, along with a few savoury options and, of course, Greek coffee.
Ownership of this long standing venue did change a few years back and the quality isn’t as consistent as it used to be. We find that the syrup based desserts in particular can often be too sweet. The generous opening hours, however, make International Cakes one of the few options for these sorts of Greek treats late a night any day of the week.
The almond coconut slices and halva are what we tend to buy when we’re here, and they generally hit the spot.
