Sitting close to the South Melbourne Market where a market with the freshest seafood lies Chez Dré, a french breakfast, lunch and patisserie restaurant catered for all.
Chez Dré, a French-inspired sweet & savoury delights, treats.. you name it. The good thing is, they have all-day brunch menu! To top it up, they have a range selection of petits gateau – all unique in it’s way.
There’s an outdoor dining area right after the main entrance. When it gets busy, you’d have to wait (with seats available) for a table. The outdoor area is wonderful – it was a bright day – perfect for Brunch out under the sun at the start of Spring. You can bring your pets and there is sufficient space for them to lie there next to your table/chair as you chat away with your friends and family.
Indoor dining area is modern with long wooden stools without backrests. Other seats were those stackable stools – it didn’t look like it much cost was put to the chairs. But what impressed me was the cleanliness and the arrangement of the restaurant.
It seemed like they have segregated areas, one area for table of fours sitting at the booth next to the dessert counter, two areas for larger groups fitting 8-10 and one area for outdoor dining.
The staff was friendly, our waitress sounded like she had a french accent. She was enthusiastic and when I asked about her recommendation for dessert, she definitely helped me in picking the first petit gateau out of the millions of delights! She helped us try the passionfruit and chocolate mousse. It was devine. Loved the citrus taste combined with the sweetness of chocolate. Chocolate itself wasn’t sweet like many mousse. It was the perfect balance for me.
