Brunetti, the famous Faraday Street pasticceria, has pulled up stumps and returned to its original,  and spiritual, home on Lygon Street. And they've effected one hell of an upgrade. The new space is opposite Cinema Nova and the joint is twice (!) of the size of the former premises. They're serving pizze and wine now too. 

Sure, cue  the I-only-like-hole-in-the-wall-hipster-digs crowd saying it's just a chain, but this place is a survivor for a reason. Have you tried the hot chocolate? The stuff is so dark its bordering on black and so thick you could stand a spoon in it. The macarons? Those brightly coloured puffballs are the perfect balance of crunch, crumble and creamy ganache and they're consistently ace. 

Now a triple threat with a café, piazza and restaurant, you could pass the whole day here, going from meal to meal and then browsing the pastries and cakes in the interim hours.
