Ever been in love with a brand before you even taste their goods? This was us before we even stepped into Charly’s Bakery. With their colourful branding and delicious-looking treats, finally tasting the goods was really quite exciting. It’s a must-visit at least once in your lifetime.
If you ever find yourself on Bree Street be sure to pop into Jason Bakery for exquisite baked treats and a cup of something warming. And if bread is your life, then definitely go replenish at this fine establishment. For those in love with croissants, we recommend you try the incredible bacon cheese wholegrain mustard croissant. It’s to die for!
The Velvet Cake Co
The Velvet Cake Co is another fall-in-love-with-the-brand-before-you-taste-the-goods type of bakery. With impeccable-looking baked treats, when you finally have that first bite, it’s like a taste of heaven. Offering everything from rainbow cakes to Coco Chanel cakes, they have a cake for any occasion.
Nestled somewhere on Shortmarket street, Rosa’s Bakery is a must-visit on your next inner-city escapade. Offering an array of phenomenal baked goods, it’d be crime not to try at least one, or three. Sample the cherry or custard danish if you’re ready to have your life transformed. But if you want your world rocked instead, then you must be in need of a mascarpone lemon baked cheesecake. YUM!
