HAUSFRAU
Melbourne, VIC

When too much frau simply isn't enough, head to Hausfrau bakery and cafe. One of Yarraville's hidden gems, this unassuming neighbourhood cafe has diners covered on breakfast, lunch and everything in between. With rumours of some of Melbourne's best vanilla slice and meat pie, this is certainly not a place to miss if you're driving through.

DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
When too much frau is just not enough, join the ladies who linger, prams akimbo, over lattes and cakes at this homage to all things domestic. Watch the waitresses, resplendent in just-like-mama-used-to-wear cutesy aprons, whiz around in a display of coordinated domesticity so well constructed it puts the Australian synchronized swimming team to shame. Enjoy the cool relaxed decor – slightly retro, slightly modern, but definitely relaxed and easy on the eye. Ogle the giant kitchen utensils, namely a whisk, sieve and can-opener which serve as both kooky decoration and further tribute to the domestic goddess in all of us. Ponder the size of the fraus in the kitchen whose job it must be to wield these massive tools as they whip up batch after batch of superlative sweetmeats and more.

"But what about us?" I hear the men moan. Worry not boys. A touch girly the whole set up may be, but who cares when the goodies are so good. Get stuck into excellent coffee and accompany it with a selection of the very best the Austrian baking canon has to offer; richer than Rupert Murdoch and more seductive than Jennifer Hawkins. Choose from tarts plump with custard and pistachio, dense chocolate linzer and other tortes, strudels and a Black Forest cake tempered with sour cherries. Savouries bust out of the Teutonic boundary and head south towards individual pizzas of the Mediterranean variety. There are full-sized cakes to take away at ridiculously decent prices, and for the single gent there are gingerbread ladies to go. Danke.
