Rarely do we think to trek away from the CBD for lunches and snacks, but there are some good treats to be found if you know where to look.
To me, Sweet Infinity is all about butter. Good butter and lots of it. Their pies are like an amazing casserole wrapped up in a croissant. Lamb-something-or-other-gourmet is better than the chicken, basil & corn and I'm yet to try the duck l'orange because it's always sold out by the time I get there.
Their menu of treats changes regularly. The home-made Bounty Bar (serious dark chocolate around a big slab of coconut) hasn't made an appearance lately but the well-documented lemon meringue pie is always there. The delicate and soft lamingtons, dipped in strong dark chocolate, are a favourite of mine.
You can also stop by there for a loaf of sourdough to take home. A special treat at this time of year (in my bag but not yet tested) are the hot cross buns - 6 for $7. Yeah, pricier than Coles but does the baker at Coles personally candy half the orange peel?
