    Opening with little to no fanfare in the old Tilba Bakery site in July, this brand new west side bakery is well on its way to establishing itself as an if-you-know-you-know local hot spot.

    Serving breads, sweet and savoury pastries and drinks, reviews are starting to build on Google about the loveliness of the staff, the freshness of the pastries and the unparalleled flavours of the pies (recent offerings include lamb saag, kimchi chicken, and chicken mushroom and chickpea). There are gluten-free and vegan options available, and they also offer catering and whole cake orders. 

    This hungry customer ordered the seeded sourdough, still warm from the oven and with the heft of a good breakfast to last a week. The custard filled blueberry and almond Danish was a delight, with crisp flaky pastry and a smooth rich custard that coated the mouth and filled the soul. Lastly, the not-so-humble sausage roll. The flavourings and seasonings were so balanced and actually visible, even to the untrained eye, surrounded by a crispy, flaky pastry shell. 

    While still in the early days of establishing their range and building their team, the passion and dedication that Head Baker Ander shows will quickly establish this bakery in the hearts of Sunshine and west side locals. The care staff take with their customers was evident as soon as I walked in the door, and no matter what you order, I’m sure you will leave with a smile. Seating options available inside and out, or take your choices to go and make the short walk to the edge of the Maribyrnong. 

    Open for good vibes Thursday – Sunday from 8am to 4pm

    76 Warwick Road, Sunshine North
