Brunetti Cakes began trading at the Faraday street location in 1985. The Angelé family acquired the business in 1991 and transformed the lovely café that it was into a truly authentic roman Pasticceria.
The Angelé family comes equipped with a wealth of knowledge and experience in Pastry and Cafés. The founder, Mr Giorgio Angelé began his training in Rome at the ripe age of 10. In 1956, at the age 23, Giorgio came to Australia with the Italian Olympic team as a pastry chef. After working for a few years, Giorgio was then given the opportunity to migrate to Australia permanently.Since then Giorgio has always been involved in the pastry industry and you can still find him at Brunetti baking a delicious selection of European style sweets and desserts. Over the years, Brunetti in Carlton has become one of Melbourne’s most iconic places to visit to indulge in a delicious Italian style coffee from the Bar, cake from the Pasticceria, gelato or tempting savoury from the Paninoteca. Brunetti became so popular that in April of 2005 another Brunetti café opened in Melbourne’s City Square, followed by a café in Camberwell (October 2007). Addition to this, you can also find Brunetti’s first international café in the Dubai Mall.
With Brunetti’s expansion across Melbourne and the Middle East their latest development is Brunetti Myer Melbourne (October 2010). The new establishment will be based on the level 3 in Myer Bourke Street Melbourne, and the cafe will offer a large selection of Brunetti fan fare to include celebration cakes and desserts, savoury, chocolates, and caffé.
