Voted one of The Best Bakeries in Melbourne

Culture Trip have worked on shortlisting the best bakeries in Melbourne down to a list of their top 5. We are honoured to have made the list!

From crisp baguettes to ciabatta and the humble loaf, bread is a staple in any kitchen cupboard. But how can you tell the crummy bakeries from the best boulangeries? Culture Trip has eaten their way through Melbourne to bring you a list of the bakeries you absolutely knead to visit.

The display case is crammed with petite sweets, croissants and brightly coloured macarons. Baguettes are proudly displayed standing behind the counter alongside brioche, multigrain, rye and wholemeal loaves. With shops in Bentleigh and Port Melbourne, there’s double the opportunity to treat yourself.

A toast bar is opening in Melbourne

Timeout Melbourne mentioned a new toast bar Kings and Knaves, that will be opening.

Now, about that toast. Sure, serving toast might seem a little pedestrian (even the most incompetent cook can whip up some vegemite soldiers) but Kings and Knaves have a hook: they’re serving specialty toast on fresh Noisette Bakery bread.

You can always rely on Melbourne to find the next 'thing' when it comes to food!

David Menard in Provincial Living

According to the old Romany proverb “L’homme n’a pas seulement besoin de pain, il a aussi besoin de respect” (Not only does man need bread, he also needs respect). At his Port Melbourne boulangerie, Noisette, David Ménard offers the city’s best sourdough breads and baguettes and lives by this old saying in his relationships with others.

Around the World in 11 Doughnuts


Celebrate French joie de vivre with a beignet, a doughnut with French origins but made popular in New Orleans. The beignet is softer with a brioche feel. They’re best served hot and filled with sugary goodness. Port Melbourne’s Noisette offers three types of beignets – strawberry jam, vanilla custard (the vanilla bean is from Madagascar) and salty caramel. All are made with butter from Brittany, making them extra calorific… and delicious! -
