My friend Alyna suggested we try The Providore, a new establishment that sits comfortably in Mandarin Gallery, for an afternoon of cakes and coffee. I wasn't expecting it to match up to Melbourne's standards, but found that the place was fairly decent, and worth re-visiting for its coffee.
The coffee was (thankfully) better than the cakes, so I would definitely recommend skipping the sweet treats and going in for the caffeine-laced kill.
