Our Story

We created this shop in the honour of my grandfather's memory and to bring to life his wonderful sweet creations, I was lucky enough to enjoy as a child.

My grandfather, Oszkar Girodi, a talented pastry chef and violinist, was born in a small town in exotic Transylvania in 1914.

Despite the horrors of Two World Wars, time as a POW and communist rule, he continued to make divine cakes with the help of my beautiful grandmother in a small shop in Kolozsvar (now called Clui) until his death in 1974.

Our cakes are based on his recipes from Central Europe, combining Hungarian and German flavours, most of which are unique in Melbourne. All our cakes are made on the premises from the best ingredients.

We would like to share them with you, hoping to give you moments of pleasure and satisfaction.
