There’s few smells that can rival a warm, freshly baked loaf of bread or buttery croissant in the morning. Luckily for us, Brisbane’s best bakeries are killing it with delicious artisan sourdoughs, flaky croissants, epic cakes and delicate pastries on the daily (no one said anything about a diet here). And because we love all the baked goods, we’ve put together this list of where to find the best bakeries in Brisbane. Get your fix!
A firm favourite when talking Brisbane’s best bakeries, Jocelyn’s Provisions on James Street is the last word in bakery chic. Dainty quiches sit next to super gorgeous passionfruit cupcakes and delicious lamb and rosemary pies. And it’s fair to say we’re obsessed with their raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake.
Miettes Boulangerie Patisserie in Graceville is one of Brisbane’s not-so-well-kept bakery secrets. On any given morning you will find scores of people lining up for Miettes’ famous sausage rolls, freshly bakes artisan bread and their soft cinnamon buns. The good news is they also have a solid coffee game with Campos beans at the ready.
You know they do their bread right at Brewbakers in Albion because they use organic Kialla flour and let their sourdoughs ferment for a full 48 hours. This dedication to the art of bread making results in delicious loaves, but don’t even try to leave without trying the sourdough brownies or the mini jam doughnuts. You’ll thank us later.
Danny’s darling bakery in Tenerrife is a true Brisbane gem. All the baked delights are expertly hand crafted by Danny, including wholesome rye loaves and decadent brownies. Come lunchtime he also serves up huge pizzas that you can buy by the slice.
It’s no surprise that the French-inspired Chouquette in New Farm knows how to deliver some outstanding French-inspired baked goods. We’re talking gorgeously iced eclairs, ham and cheese baguettes, not to mention strong espresso. We say oui oui!
Cake & Bake
Jocelyn Hancock’s West End bakery Cake & Bake takes traditional baked goods and adds a sophisticated edge. The ‘West End Brownie’ is laced with tahini adding a smooth savoury flavour to the chocolate treat, while the delicate danishes are packed with fresh fruit from apricot to rhubarb, depending on the season.
Flour & Chocolate
Sweet treats are the star of the show at fave Brisbane bakery Flour & Chocolate in Morningside. We’ll take the nutella brownies, salted caramel cronuts and toblerone gonuts thank you very much.
Crust & Co
No list of Brisbane’s best bakeries is complete without Newmarket’s Crust & Co in the mix. The artisan bakery is all about quality and tradition and delivers sourdoughs, ryes, pastries and savoury tarts to the adoring masses. Make sure you set a reminder in your phone though, because Crust & Co is only open Friday to Sunday.
