LE MIEL ET LA LUNE
330 Cardigan Street, Carlton North.
I saw Le Miel (FYI it means ‘honey and the moon’) featured on Broadsheet Melbourne a few weeks ago and thought it looked so irresistibly mignon that I literally went there the next day. In hindsight, their promise of dark chocolate brioche should have told me that my heart would soon be broken, but I went anyway. There gf options weren’t extensive, but they were there—they offered gluten free bread, which was ordinary. I honestly don’t think it’s too much to ask for something other than the barely-viable mini slices of standard supermarket loaf, but the scrambled eggs were the best I’ve ever had so I can (sort of/not really) look past that. They also had a case full of lovely petit cakes, and luckily there was a delicate flourless orange that was actually perfect (albeit small) and parfait with my coffee.
Overall, not amazing for a coeliac, but it was so positively cute that it was worth it (but seriously, don’t go if you get upset about the lack of brioche in your life).
Melbourne, gluten free.
This blog is about something I love and something I hate. I love food, and I hate being coeliac.
Not being able to eat bread sucks. I can't count the amount of times I've been close to tears because 'I'm just really hungry and I just can't eat anything and I just want a sandwich!'. All I ask for is some gluten-free bread and a token flourless orange cake—and I adore it if I can find something more. Constantly prowling for gluten free anything in my lovely city MELBOURNE and I sometimes try to cook gluten free versions of delicious things that usually contain gluten. My favourite thing to do is go out for brunch and a coffee, and I'm an egg-fiend with an over-exerted sweet tooth.
