FLEUR DEPOT DE PAIN
Depot de Pain, French for “bread depot,” is a traditional term for a shop that sells bread made off-site. Fleur Depot de Pain is a quiet nod in the direction of this classic concept. All breads and pastries at Depot de Pain are supplied by its sister venue, the iconic French Fantasies Boulangerie Patisserie on Toorak Road, South Yarra.
Fleur’s contemporary interpretation embraces the hectic lifestyle of city folk, catering to their diverse needs by serving baked goods, classic French meals and luxury items at an affordable cost. Already popular as a weekend brunch venue, its menu ranges from a simple dish of fresh natural yoghurt served with organic honey to the more classic French with items such as Croque Monsieur and Befteck Hache.
Opening hours are 7 days a week, 6:30am – 7:00pm
Classico marks a return to the essence of Italian fare. Pared back yet elegant dishes range from traditional Neapolitan 10-inch stonecrust pizzas to fresh egg pasta topped with rich tomato sugo and olive oil based sauces.
Central to Classico is its open antipasti bar. Fashioned to resemble an Italian “Salumeria”, customers can choose from a selection of hanging prosciuttos, salami and Parma style ham which are carved fresh.
Classico’s interior has been designed by architects Foong + Sormann. Its stylish ambience has been created through the use of elegant, timeless materials such as walnut timber panels and marble bar tops. It is the perfect place to enjoy a fine selection of Italian beer, wine and spirits and the strong aroma of espresso coffee.
Classico and Fleur Depot de Pain are managed by the operators of the Belgian Beer Café, Beer DeLuxe, the Greek Grill at Federation Square and French Fantasies.
