The Verdict

You might have seen Penny For Pound around the traps. Co-owners Ben Wilson and Matilda Smith provide baked treats and goodies for cafes like Axil, Hardware Societe and Mayday, and they recently took out top gong at the 2018 Doughnut Fest.

We’ll just let that sink in. Best doughnut. In all of Melbourne.

Well Penny For Pound have quietly opened their own bakery and cafe space in Richmond, just behind Bridge Rd, and the locals are already frothing.

Here’s how you find it: head down Lord St, past Minamishima, and you’ll spot a cafe window and a crowd of hungry Melbournians. That’s Penny For Pound. The space isn’t big—a white-tiled pastry wonderland with cute branding from Hungry Workshop—but the deliciousness-per-square-inch is very, very high.

Brace your trousers. We’re talking yuzu meringue cakes and black sesame tarts. Strawberry cheesecake croissants and crispy cronuts, topped with fresh fruit. Just cross your fingers Ben and Matilda are serving up their winning doughnut: fig, honeycomb and orange crème Brûlée (the competition never really had a chance, did they...)

Penny For Pond will be open Friday to Sunday, 8am till sold out (to be safe, get here before midday).
