Here’s Where To Find Perth’s Best Croissants

By Claire Logan – who grew up in an ingredient household and swears by the healing powers of a good martini

A smattering of crumbs down a work shirt, a greasy corner-of-the-lips smile, a delicate flake of pastry hanging from a loose strand of hair…

If you know what to look for, you can spot bona fide croissant lovers everywhere.

And to induct you into this happy-go-lucky tribe, we’ve tracked down the best croissants in Perth, with a little help from the 2023 Perth Royal Bread & Pastry Awards.

North Street Store (Big Loaf Factory)

Cottesloe

As if you’d expect anything less, North Street Store and its bakery crew at Big Loaf Factory have mastered the art of layering buttery, flakey pastry deliciousness. So much so that their big and beautiful butter croissant made with Pepe Saya cultured butter has just taken out the gold for Best Pastry in the 2023 Perth Royal Bread & Pastry Awards.

Teeter Bakery

Perth

Talented baker Natasha Brownfield has been quietly cranking out some of Perth's finest pastries from kitchens and pop-up spots across Perth. Now she finally has an adorable corner shop all her own where you can scoop up her delicious creations—including one of the best damn croissants in Perth, which was just awarded a silver medal in this year's Perth Royal Bread & Pastry Awards. Teeter Bakery is open Saturday 9am to 2pm or until sold out.

Harvest Boulangerie Patisserie

Scarborough

Patisserie is basically French for dang-that’s-a-good-croissant. Ham and cheese, pain au chocolat or just good ol’ fashioned plain—the options at Harvest Boulangerie Patisserie are endless. And with their traditional croissant picking up a silver medal in this year's Perth Royal Bread & Pastry Awards, you know they're all good. The delicious Humblebee Coffee doesn’t hurt either, especially when it's topped with a little complimentary cake.

Goods Bakery

West Leederville

Just in case West Leedy couldn’t get any cooler, Goods Bakery landed on Oxford Close with some of the most delicious ‘gram worthy pastries around. The pies, crullers and everything escargots are all damn good, but if it's a good flakey croissant you're after, you can't go wrong with this silver medal-winning delight.

Knead Bread & Coffee 

Scarborough

This family-run micro bakery is a local fave in Scarborough, and the 2023 Perth Royal Bread & Pastry Awards confirm why. Knead Bread & Coffee tied with Big Loaf for the most successful exhibitor at this year's awards, with their organic sourdough croissant picking up a silver medal. Considering it takes three whole days to make these crispy, irresistible pastries, we reckon that's more than deserved.

Layers

Subiaco

French-style pastries are the name of the game at Layers, so prepare to go into a croissant-induced coma. They’re slinging plenty of croissant varieties alongside the bronze medal award-winning classic, but for us the ham and cheese croissant is an absolute must.

Baking Corner

Victoria Park

Joining the Vic Park fam late last year, Baking Corner is a gorg little spot to stock up on pastries, toasties, pies and of course a good croissant. They picked up a bronze for their tasty little number, so clearly it's not just us who rates it as one of the best around.

Chu Bakery

Highgate

It is more difficult than ever to complete a run at Hyde Park with the baked delights of Chu Bakery enticing you at every turn. Sweet-tooths will go gaga for their almond, raspberry, hazelnut and kaya coconut varieties. These are definitely some of the best croissants in Perth.

Grain Bakery

Lathlain

Grain Bakery is a family-run joint in Lathlain bridging the gap between contemporary bakehouses and the familiar country-style bakeries of yesteryear. In store you’ll find classic white sandwich loaves and sausage rolls alongside sourdoughs and creative pastries you can’t help but drool over but it's their fresh almond croissants that have us hooked.

Traditional, almond, raisin, chocolate, apple custard, ham and cheese, ham, cheese and avocado, bacon cheese and tomato, salmon, avocado and cream cheese, bacon, egg and cheese and… Yeah, we guess you could say Le Papillon does a few of the best croissants in Perth.

Three words that will change your life—Raspberry. Chocolate. Croissant. There hasn’t been a trio that’s worked so well together since the sweet pop harmonies of Hanson. Visit La Belle Patisserie for the finest croissant creations.

Crumbs

Applecross

Any day that starts at Crumbs is alright in our books. The bright little bakery is pumping out the prettiest pastries (and plenty of them) along with sweet treats and showstopping cakes made to order. The standout for us though has to be their cube croissants filled with gooey goodness like peanut butter and jelly and pistachio cream.

Turns out Maison Saint-Honoré does more than just amazing macarons, their croissant game is next level as well.
