Excellent bread and pastries. We had a roasted vegetable tart on a pastry base and a pissaladiere, both were exceptional. Ditto for cheese and spinach pastry. This place has no peer in respect to pastry in Melbourne. Too expensive? I only complain when something is inferior in quality, and quality is never cheap.

Good selection of high quality pastries and cakes. Have found the sourdough bread to be variable....sometimes under baked and doughy. Just for this-it is a bakery after all- feel justified in giving an average rating rather than very good. The meat pie however is outstanding with perfect pastry and well constructed, flavourful filling.I have done pie production costings myself and... More

We just dropped in and tried ragu meat pie. Service was excellent and meat pie delicious. For some tastes meat pie can be a bit dry but that is personnal preference. Recommended.

Dunno, but it's lost its appeal to me. Gotten pricy for what's on offer. Prefer Wood Frog on Barkley St. Their bread is better.

Walked pass this bakery when it was closed and I'm always searching for good bakeries so it deserved another visit the next day during opening hours. They were already doing a very good trade on a Sundat @7:30am. Tried the bombolini which was light and fluffy with just the right amount of custard. The coffee was well made and the... More

Gorgeous bakery opposite Albert park. The fruit bread is the best I've ever tasted. Great staff and a wonderful array of pastries makes this place stand out from the rest.

A great place for coffee in a sunny spot on Fitzroy St. Make sure you take a sourdough home with you, the breads are great

My sister in law dropped by with a loaf of their sourdough breadto go with our lunch. It turned out to be the star of the lunch. Maybe better than I have eaten in France. The type of bread that makes the simplest meal memorable. To top that we has lemon brulee tarts and divine eclairs...not the monsterous fake concoctions... More

We tried the plain croissant, chocolate and pistachio croissant. The best we've ever had. We also tried the pecan tart, brownie, a wafer thing and chocolate muffin. All fresh and wonderful. The kids especially loved the muffins and ordered them again the following day. The staff were helpful and friendly. A beautiful shop with beautiful food. Coming back for sure.

Consider the bread to be up there with the best in the world. Pastries / pies etc good but a bit pricey. Any loaf is good , particularly like The European which is sold by weight as a half / quarter or whole. The mushroom brioche is a treat but as I s aid a tad expensive. Dont know how... More
