From crusty sourdoughs to sweet treats and tasty pies, Agenda visited Melbourne’s top five bakeries.
Consider these top Melbourne bakeries on your next trip.
Chirico’s sourdoughs are nothing short of amazing and some of the best in Melbourne. Treat yourself with an olive loaf or arguably the best chocolate nougat slices in town.
At Pure Bread Bakery, you’ll not only get friendly service, but also find a great range of breads and cakes, from casalinga sourdoughs, to olive and fruit loaves, or delicious carrot cakes and pecan tarts.
Owner Matti Malchi and his team hand-make the bread at this wholesale bakery and shop. The three-grain or seed loaf, the gluten-free bread, francese rolls and panforte are well worth the detour.
You can find Phillip Chaing’s brioches at David Jones Food Hall. While an expert in the art of baking the sweetened French bread, Phillip also makes a variety of tangy sourdoughs. Let yourself be tempted by the chocolate sourdough with cherries and hazelnuts.
To say that Frank Rieck masters European breads is an understatement. Try out the Bavarian pretzels, Vienna loves, onion rolls or 100 per cent ryes with caraway, sunflower or sesame seeds.
