The tour of Brunetti’s was beyond expectation. Fabio, the owner, was incredibly generous with his time, his explanations and the sharing of his wonderful food and history! Well done Foodi for including that on the tour!! That was hands down an incredible experience!!

This was a great tour. The in-depth tour of Brunetti's was particularly good - it made me realise that it wasn't just a cake shop. We later went for pizza in the city shop, which we really enjoyed. The other stops were good too. I also really enjoyed the spice shop visit, and bought lots of things to take home.

5/5 by David Ryan
The brief history on Lygon Street was interesting. The highlight was definitely the visit to Brunetti where the owner Fabio showed such passion about the history of the shop and how it has evolved over the years and how they keep at the forefront of the cake industry. Bravo! The food samples were delicious too!

Really enjoyed the easy pace and the establishments visited! Marnie, our tour guide, was very friendly and supportive! She got us to where we needed to be on time and made sure we got what we were supposed to at each place! The best stop was Brunetti’s as the owner was very generous with his time and hospitality! Overall, an excellent way to spend a morning!

A great experience, thoroughly enjoyed the food and learnt so much as well. I've fallen back in love with Lygon St. after taking it for granted for many years.Our tour guide Marnie was lovely. She related well to everyone on the tour, and brought the history of Carlton to life.
5/5 by Debra Fischer
I really enjoyed this event. Marnie did a great job of hosting us and Fabio at Berettis was so generous of his time and product. We will definately be going back there in the future. All of the businesses were very good. Loved the platters at Stugetties too. Thankyou for such a unique experience
5/5 by Sue Spence
It was fantastic. Gave it to my husband for a gift, and he loved it. Brunettis was our favourite, and Fabio was so generous with his time, information, and samples. If the tour had of ended there, we would have been more than happy. LOVED IT! Have recommended it to friends, who have used our discount coupon to purchase gift vouchers for Christmas.
