Around the World in 11 Doughnuts


Celebrate French joie de vivre with a beignet, a doughnut with French origins but made popular in New Orleans. The beignet is softer with a brioche feel. They’re best served hot and filled with sugary goodness. Port Melbourne’s Noisette offers three types of beignets – strawberry jam, vanilla custard (the vanilla bean is from Madagascar) and salty caramel. All are made with butter from Brittany, making them extra calorific… and delicious! -

Melbourne's new-wave eclairs

Noisette Salted Caramel Eclair

This precisely piped eclair is filled with a thick, latte-coloured salted caramel filling and dotted with droplets of citrusy melted chocolate. The rich, salty filling is balanced by the addition of a tempered dark chocolate sheet. A drizzle of salted caramel glues the chocolate to the choux and adds to the two-handed salty/sweet palate punch. Makes for a decadent treat.

Noisette on Postcards

Noisette-on-PostcardsRecently Postcards, Channel 9's Victorian-based travel program, stopped past our Port Melbourne shop as part of a special on Melbourne's shopping strips. As part of the bustling Bay Street community, Noisette was proud to have the crew visit.

We are not 100% sure how much of their visit will make it in to the final episode but either way, if you are watching the TV, check out the show at 5.30pm 8 September on Channel 9 as a way of supporting local shopping precincts!
