Time Out Melbourne

Can't wait to get home with the goods? Crumble over the counter at these bakery-cafés

Tivoli Road Bakery

The masters of snacks know how to bake. Go salted caramel doughnuts – fluffy, sugar dusted balls with just enough of a liquid centre to ruin your shirt have or get a few lamb pies to go. South Yarra.

Brasserie Bread

A Sydney steal, this carb-factory-come-café offers the spectacle of watching floury bakers manhandling excellent fruit buns, tarts and loaves while filling your face with stout little cupcakes. South Melbourne.

Baker D Chirico

Hot bread, hot staff and the hottest design of any bakehouse in Melbourne. It’s equally about sitting beneath the hypnotic waved panels as it is about the fluff, crunch and squish of custard filled bombolini. St Kilda.

Il Fornaio

Philippa Sibley left a Snicker’s dessert sized hole when she left this bakery-café, and they’ve just plugged it with fresh cheese, made on premises daily and a new bakery pumping out olive bread and spelt batards. St Kilda.

Loafer Bread

This Fitzroy North favourite is busy, pretty, with little blue metal chairs for sitting on the street with billowing flaky croissants or an organic meat pie, and uses all organic and biodynamic produce. Fitzroy North.
