A heap of Doe Donuts
If bread, pastry or just carbs in general are your thing, have we got news for you. A number of top bakeries are continuing to share their dough-liciousness with us throughout the lockdown, and the best bit is, you don't even need to leave home to get some (cya later, supermarket). Yip, if you knead carbs in your life—and you knead them now—here's a list of who's delivering.
 
So without further ado, these are the best bakeries who will deliver their baked goods direct to your door.

Daily Bread

It's no secret that we're big fans of Daily Bread, whose appetite for all things baked has spawned stores in Point Chevalier, Belmont, Newmarket, Britomart, Ponsonby, and the central city. Head online to nab yourself one of their signature sourdough loaves, cinnamon and brown butter doughnuts, or brand new potato buns.

Delivery available Auckland-wide. Order here.

Bread & Butter

Bread & Butter have long held a place in our carb-loving hearts thanks to their yummy pastries, cakes, and of course bread. As fans of the sweet stuff, it's hard for us to go past their raspberry and custard cookies (which, btw, come in a rather dangerous six-pack).

Little Bird

Citysiders, you're in luck—Little Bird is making their tasty (un)baked treats available to you throughout Level 4. Choose from their drool-worthy cheesecakes, slices or tarts (the banoffee pie and chocolate raspberry donuts are an absolute must), or if decision-making's not your forte, check out one of their Delight Boxes which are filled with a surprise assortment of sweets.

Dough Boys

Stock up your pantry with one of Dough Boys' artisan bread boxes. Available in a range of options, these babies are filled with goodies that can be enjoyed fresh, or frozen and used later (that kumara loaf has our name on it). They also sling some killer pies and saussie rolls, and DIY pastry kits if you're keen to do a little baking of your own.

Little French Pastry

With a name like Little French Pastry, you know you're getting the crème de la crème when you buy from these guys. Pretty little tarts, macarons and pastries are all on the menu here, but be in quick—they're flying out the door faster than you can say oui-oui.

Pandoro

Pandoro is old-hands at the baking game and is keeping our carb levels at full capacity with their artisan bread, cakes, and biccies. Oh, and a little birdie told us they also have high-grade flour (which once again seems to be amiss from many supermarkets).

Grownup Donuts

Some of the city's best doughnuts, delivered direct to our door? Oh helllll yes. Grownup Donuts' treats are available in an ever-changing array of flavours, all equally delicious—think vanilla cream with butterscotch, raspberry cheesecake, and Belgian chocolate mousse.

Kookie Haus

Makers of mouthwatering cookies—er, kookies—with a range of vegan, gluten-free, keto and diabetic-friendly options available, Kookie Haus are definitely a Level 4 essential. Don't go past their kookie dough sandwiches—these are, after all, the item that put these guys on the map.

Cake is at the forefront of our mind most days, and now more than ever. Thankfully, Sweet Talk is here to curb our cravings with their hugely popular cake jars.

Moustache Milk & Cookie Bar

If it's cookies you're after, Moustache Milk & Cookie Bar should be top of the list. We're especially fond of their super-sized Caramilk Cookie Pie—big enough to feed 12 people, but best kept to yourself.

The Vegan Treatory

If you've yet to try The Vegan Treatory's famous cookies, now's the time. These bad boys are big in size and even bigger on flavour, coming in three choc-heavy options. We love how they're more in line with the American style of biscuit (crispy on the outside, soft in the centre) and the fact that they're vegan? Amazing.

Delivery available nationwide. Order here.

Charlie Mia

Vegan and gluten-free peeps, don't think for a minute that Charlie Mia has forgotten about you. The popular Kingsland bakery has you covered with a selection of their tastiest plant-based bakes including bagels, savoury scones, cakes, cookies and yes, those famous doughnuts.

The legends at Doe Donuts are also bringing their signature doughy treats to your doorstep (if the courier doesn't get to them first, that is...).
