MoVida Bakery

My sweet tooth has been reignited recently so I have been craving insane amounts of sugar - even consuming spoonfuls of sweetened condensed milk on the daily in any form; terrible, I know but I can't help myself. Coincidentally, my birthday passed recently and we celebrated with some MoVida dossants!

Dossants, possibly the next dessert trend hitting Melbourne, is spearheaded by MoVida bakery. What is a dossant, I hear you ask? It is a croissant pastry fried with cinnamon sugar which is then topped with a variety of fillings. It all came about when food lovers were all atwitter on Twitter in regards to a certain article circulating about Dominique Ansel's 'cronut' - the croissant-doughnut hybrid taking New York by storm. In fact, demand is high and even the name 'cronut' has been trademarked! MoVida Bakery has decided to make their own version for Melbournians to enjoy!


Chantilly with dried cherry, lemon curd & raspberry custard with dried raspberry ($5 each)

With a few batches made per day, the first comes out at approximately 9:30 - 10am, so by the time I arrived at 10:30am, I had managed to grab the last six of seven dossants left. The dossant flavours available that day were Chantilly with dried cherry, lemon curd with dehydrated strawberry and raspberry custard with dried raspberry.


We didn't eat them until later that night but a quick zap in the oven and they were crispy outside with buttery, fluffy layers inside (even beautifully caramelised on top from the cinnamon sugar melting in the oven - omg!). Not to mention that all the fillings were delicious with lemon curd being my favourite. In my opinion, worth the hype and worth a visit. Try them out yourself and let me know what you think!

Food: 8.5/10
Service: 7.5/10
Value: 7/10
Will I return? Yes, here's hoping the dossants are here to stay!

  2. Need this now, please! I love Movida Bakery, they do excellent doughuts normally so I suspect these must be delicious. I think they need to do one with dulce de leche. :)

  7. I read an article about these and have been wanting to get one since! I actually live just round the corner, but don't have the stomach for rich, sweet foods early in the morning. Nice to know that they keep well and will emerge nicely with a quick zap in the oven!
