8. Pana Chocolate: Raw Desserts
The newest kid on the dessert block is a very welcome addition. Pana Chocolate in Alexandria serves raw desserts (vegan, dairy and gluten free), which means you can feel good about what you’re eating while you’re eating it! The array of raw cheesecakes is plentiful and the display case alone is drool worthy. If you still don’t feel like you’ve had your fill, you can always grab a bar of the original chocolate to take home for an extra snack! 21 Fountain St, Alexandria NSW 2015
7. Pasticceria Papa: Ricotta Cheesecakes
The first time we visited Pasticceria Papa in Sydney’s Inner West was on a lazy Saturday. We were looking for morning tea and took a roll of the dice – and a spin of the Urbanspoon ‘what’s nearby’ wheel. We stumbled into pastry heaven. Cannoli that rivals Italy’s (in Pisa I subsisted solely on ricotta cannoli for two days straight, so you can take my word for it), fruit tarts that are glazed perfection and rows of pastries lining the entire length of a four metre counter top. The real star of the show is the Ricotta Cheesecake. Creamy, sweet, light. Incredible. Buy a whole cake, buy by the slice, or buy the little individual cakes for a single serve you won’t feel guilty about not sharing. You can also choose to have it pumped full of Nutella for the ultimate in Italian deliciousness. 145 Ramsay Street Haberfield
