The man behind our obsession with macarons, croquembouche and V8 cakes is behind Little Frankie's. But this is a move back to basics. Housed in the same building as his high-tea salon, Fancy Nance, it focuses on the simple art of Italian baking.

All of Zumbo's Italian favourites feature on the sweet side of things, plus some stellar panettone buns. There's also a gelato cabinet, stocked with flavours such as vanilla risotto and olive oil with lemon.

If you're feeling more like something savoury, grab a ragout-stuffed arancini, or a mbriulata (puff pastry scroll). Zumbo will add pizzas, calzones and more.

If you're in a rush, everything is available to go from the takeaway counter. Otherwise, grab a table in the 30-seat cafe and enjoy over an espresso.

The colourful fit-out, courtesy of Studio Tate, is classic Zumbo territory – his signature blush pink features, and there is a striking flamingo mural by artist Dan Wenn.
