Bay Vista, Brighton Le Sands

Bay Vista, Brighton Le Sands

I was lucky enough to have Jelly introduce me to this lovely dessert bar and it has became my favourite dessert spot ever since, and our go to spot for catchups :P!! There are words of wisdom written all over the walls!! I mean, who knew stressed backwards spells dessert???!? Definitely very encouraging whilst I was going through exams :) Hahah love you guys and the the smell of fresh brewing oh so melty chocolate...crispy cooking crepes...perfectly fluffy pancakes..and much muuuuch moreeee! Ahh I salivate just thinking about their copious amounts of delicious goodies!!!!!

So guys, I have below, the numerous desserts I have tried over the course of my never ending adventures at Bay Vista! Enjoy! :)

March 2014

I've been visiting Bay Vista a lot recently, I have always visited it regularly, but twice in 2 weeks? Definitely a record!

Bay Vista has recently updated their menu items as well as a whole lot of new ice-cream flavours!  Apparently there is even lamington flavoured ice-cream now!! Wows.  Pretty keenbeans to try that next time!

Peter, the restaurant manager, highly recommended the new Mexican Crepe ($17.00) so we got exactly that!

What came out was one huuuuuuuge slab of soft, perfectly chewy crepe stuffed with chilli beef, beans, guacamole and salsa with a nice side of salad and huge dollop of oober creamy sour cream.  I did what I always do, and slathered the sour cream all over the crepe, yummms.

Then we ordered N.Y.S.B Cheesecake Waffles ($16.00) which came out so quickly we hardly had time to grab our cutlery!  

The waffles were thick and fluffy and I loved them together with the NY cheesecake and thick strawberry sauce.  I would have to say they do the best NY cheesecake imo.  

Annnd then came the finale of the night, Bill The Boss's Buenos Aires ($24.00), a magnificent concoction of mango, coconut and passionfruit ice-cream, fresh bananas, fresh strawberries, soft serve ice-cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce and diced roasted hazelnuts served in a huge glass fish bowl :D  A good 30cm tall I think!  I highly recommend anyone visiting Bay Vista to order one of these kinds of bowls under the 'World Famous Icecream Bowls- Super Special'.  They are hands down the best sundaes you will ever have!

The next week, we went back to try moooooar desserts, starting with the 5th Avenue New York ($24.00).  Again, a huge bowl filled with massive scoops of peanut butter ice-cream, chocolate ice-cream, boysenberry ice-cream, soft serve ice cream, waffle bites, brownie chunks and chocolate fudge sauce.  It was deeliiiish as always and gone in less than five minutes!

Next came the dish I was most excited about, a new menu item called the Super 'Sonia' ($17.00) featuring perfectly cooked crepes stuffed with cinnamon scroll chunks, fresh banana, sultanas and mixed smashed nuts, then topped with loads of cinnamon sugar and super creamy vanilla ice-cream. 

Below are a selection of my picks from Bay Vista, I am still trying to figure out how to add posts to previous posts so for now this will do.

 Snickes Crepes- Snickers bar pieces, roasted peanuts, chocolate drops, caramel sauce.

Athens 2004- Lychee rose ice-cream, chocolate ice-cream, fig and pistachio ice-cream, soft serve ice-cream, cream, white chocolate sauce, pecans and turkish delight.
OMG I LOVE THIS! This was the first sundae I ever tried here, and I get it almost every single time I come here!

5th Avenue New York- Peanut butter, chocolate and boysenberry ice cream, NY cheesecake pieces, chocolate brownie, real ice cream ‘soft serve’, whipped cream, fountain chocolate fudge and waffle bites.

 South Pacific- perfect blend of coconut ice cream, banana slices, whipped cream, chocolate chips, soft serve, chocolate fudge and the waffle cone on top.

N.Y.S.B cheesecake waffles- Thick Belgium waffles topped with fresh strawberries, NY cheesecake, strawberry puree and ice-cream
I absolutely love their NY Cheesecake! The best I have ever tried!

Fountain chocolate waffles- Warm delicious Belgium waffles topped with either strawberries or bananas and a very generous serve of fountain chocolate and vanilla ice-cream

The Secret Cinnamon Scroll.  It is pretty much a huge  scroll of sweet bread , soft, warm, and its innards filled with cinnamon and a sweet liquid thing slathered on the bread which made it really nice and moist. 

Mortal Sin Cheesecake-  It consists of chocolate biscuit crumb base, smooth cheesecake layer, dark chocolate mousse and finished off with a layer of rich butterscotch caramel cream.  It was surprisingly light tasted even better when dipped into the melted chocolate.

Africa Wild- toffee peanut ice-cream, chocolate honeycomb, crushed nuts, whipped cream and caramel sauce

N.Y.S.B Cheesecake Pancakes: Buttermilk pancakes topped with fresh strawberries, NY cheesecake, strawberry puree and ice-cream

 Chocberry Crepes- fresh strawberries, chocolate drops and fountain chocolate

Strawberry Crepes- topped with strawberry puree, white chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream

  3. Hi,

    Just wanted to let you know about our newish restaurant / café that we opened in Prahran. It is a sister café to a fairly established Port Melbourne venue. Prahran has great daytime café fare with a few extras.

    We specialise in the REAL American BBQ – from Maple smoked Pork Ribs to 10 hour Hickory smoked and Dry Rubbed Beef Brisket. Our American BBQ menu was around long before the current craze. In addition we have a dedicated Paleo menu, which is extremely rare in Melbourne.
    Our chef is a protege of Iron Chef Sakai. He ran 2 of Chef Sakai's restaurants in Japan.

    We would love to invite you to try out the café. If interested please let me know if you would like to come for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Invitation is for your and a friend.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Best regards,
