The. Best. Cake. Ever. Can’t rate the salted caramel, chocolate brownie goodness that we have had highly enough. Literally heaven in a cake! So good I had a piece for breakfast the day after (then dessert that night again!).

Zumbo has been around for some time now and his name alone evokes "sweet things", no matter what they are! We have been to the Balmain shop and bought several cakes. We actually loved them and would continue to buy them, except for health reasons;...More

Good bread and sweets. Be sure to arrive early on the weekends as it gets very busy and the shopfront is tiny.
