You might think you have to travel a lengthy way to find the world's best croissants, but actually, you'll find a bakery serving up just that (well, according to the New York Times, anyway) just down in Melbourne—and now, Brisbane. Yep, the world-famous Lune Croissanterie is now in Brisbane, with a new bakery now open in South Brisbane.
If you've not heard of Lune Croissanterie before, just ask any Melbournian—these pastries are worth lining up for. Down in Melbourne, the perfectly flaky dough is prepped to perfection in a temperature-controlled glass-walled room, which will be duplicated here in Brisbane so you can watch the pastry chefs in action. Owner Kate Reid's brother has even located to Brisbane to run the new store, so you know things are in good hands.
As well as melt-in-your mouth plain croissants, Lune also bakes up decadent twice-baked filled and topped croissants, along with danishes, cruffins and other pastries. Their regular menu of eight classic pastries will be supplemented by six monthly specials created just for Brisbane, so you're going to want to go back again and again.
Soon, Lune will also be doing their famous Lune Lab events here in Brisbane—a three-course dining experience where you'll get to sample creative new pastry innovations in the production space. They're uber exclusive and highly sought after—so you'll want to try and snap up tickets as soon as they are announced. In the meantime, it's time to find out if those croissants are worth the queues.
