I’m quite certain everyone is the aware of the cronut craze and especially Brewtown Newtown. It was my first time trying one so I went a little overboard and had some at the shop and then purchased more to take home with me, absolutely no regrets though.
Think of a krispy kreme original glazed, but 10x more beautiful. Flakey layers of pastry with a sweet glaze finish. Words cannot even describe how good this was! Out of all the flavours I tried, this was the clear winner.
Coffee cream cronut, $6
This cronut is filled with so much cream it was spewing out delicious coffee goodness with every bite. I’m not a regular coffee drinker but I LOVE coffee flavored things. It had a semi-sweet glaze with a perfect coffee cream filling which wasn’t too heavy or too sweet, just the right amount.
Chocolate Crunch, $5.50.
Crunchy chocolate pieces on top of a Cronut, quite nice not the most exciting.
Cinnamon cronut, $4.5.
A very simple yet delicious Cronut, flakey with lots of sugar, this resembles the cinnamon donuts from Donut King.
Look at those beautiful layers!!
The other flavors they had available are jam and passionfruit, I will definitely have to come back and give thos a go. But from what I’ve tried so far, the glazed cronut is the clear winner with coffee cream not too far behind. Next stop is Zumbo and Grumpy Barista!
Grilled black sausage, $16
Squid ink linguine, garlic chilli prawns and kale, $18.5
The mains were a little on the small side so they weren’t too filling, but I think they did that on purpose so you would have enough room left for dessert.
My lack of detail on the main dishes was because I was so engrossed in the cronuts and didn’t pay attention to anything else. But to be fair, we really only came here for the cronuts.
Brewtown is quite busy, we got there before 10am and there was already a line outside. It took us about 20 minutes to get a table, but luckily, the food comes out really quickly.
if you’re just interested in the cronuts, you can opt for takeaway which is quicker, but still a bit of a wait as they are insanely busy!
