Black Star Pastry, home of the wildly popular (and extremely 'grammable) strawberry watermelon cake, has reopened its doors in St Kilda after undergoing a complete reconstruction. The renovation has brought in a modern new look: shiny silver countertops, a monumental mirror installation, minimalist interiors and sleek neon lights.
The Acland Street shop was Black Star Pastry's first permanent Melbourne home, being described as the "soul of our business in Melbourne" by general manager Danielle Laskovsky, who is excited to start serving "Bayside again, and welcome back the St Kilda locals who supported us through a stop-start few years”.
The reopening of the store has also seen the initiation of new services including Cake Concierge, a pick-up service where customers who have pre-ordered cakes can have their cakes conveniently delivered to their cars (however, we do recommend at least popping in to check out the new industrial-chic fitout).
Black Star Pastry’s signature cakes will be available in-store, as well as a range of all-day bites such as ham and cheese croissants, egg and bacon rolls, and a ratatouille tart.
