Wake up and smell the freshly baked sourdough with our roll call of Brisbane's best bakeries. From hand-crafted croissants to crumpets worth lashing with butter, kouign-ammans (kw-een am-mahns) to specialty bread loaves, we've risen to the occasion to bring you local carb-loading gems.
Hugs Brisbane, Stafford - Follow the waft of freshly baked croissants into an unassuming corner of Stafford and meet your new best bakery friend, Hugs Brisbane. Pouring Padre coffee, it pairs deliciously well with your fresh traditional croissant, or try their savoury range for fun. The only thing better than one croissant is another!
Ala-Din Middle Eastern Sweets, Kuraby - Baklava, kataifi, namoura (honey syrup sponge) and other mouth-watering, home-style, Lebanese baked goods are waiting for those who venture to Ala-Din Middle Eastern Sweets in Kuraby.
Miettes Bakery, Graceville - You know what goes well with fresh avocado and poached eggs? Fresh out-of-the-oven bread. When you stop at Miettes in Graceville your hardest choice will be cornbread, black Russian rye, or olive and rosemary sourdough. We suggest multiple visits to try all these bakers' signature loaves.
Sprout Artisan Bakery, Rocklea - The early bird catches the worm! Or in this case, fresh sourdough and specials like the double chocolate croissant at Sprout Artisan Bakery's Rocklea Markets stall every Saturday morning. Beat the line at their ever-popular James Street location and enjoy your artisan-baked goods before most are crawling out of bed.
Wholly Crumpets, Bulimba - If you've ordered crumpets at a Brisbane cafe in the past year, chances are they were the work of Wholly Crumpets who have opened on Bulimba's Oxford Street. Up the ante on your crumpet game with toppings like pickled asparagus, bacon and feta. Keep an eye on their Instagram for regular specials.
Darvella Patisserie, Bulimba - While you're in the neighbourhood, pop into Darvella Patisserie and grab something to go. Keep walking to the river and enjoy an impromptu picnic.
Superthing, West End - Show the world you mean baked-good business with a stop at the photo-ready Superthing in West End and Lune Croissant in South Brisbane. Make it a progressive bakery date.
Flour and Chocolate, Morningside - If you're eager for an OG Brisbane bakery experience, make your way to Morningside's Flour and Chocolate (also open in Northgate and Redcliffe). They brought Brisbane the cruffin and continue to be a mainstay for their high-quality bread, cakes, pastries and more.
Christian Jacques Artisan Boulanger, Kangaroo Point - For a c'est tres bien bakery experience, visit Kangaroo Point's Christian Jacques Artisan Boulanger where in addition to traditional baked goods, you can delight in their salted caramel kouign-amman.
Indie Bakehouse - Be the friend that was onto these baked goods before they were famous and wrap your mouth around Indie Bakehouse's brekkie bars, sourdough and custom creations. Find them at the Brookfield Markets and outside West End's Vacant Assembly every Saturday.
Danny's Bread, Teneriffe - If your weekend breakfast requires bagels to schmear, Danny's Bread in Teneriffe is the place to pop into on your way back from a riverside walk. While you're there, pick up a baker's dozen of brioche burger buns for a weekend barbecue.
