Time Out Melbourne

Things get pretty hot and cross at Time Out HQ come Easter time, but after all the tears and sourdough arguments are done these were our picks for 2014

Babka Bakery Café

It's a traditional bun that goes heavy on everything including the glaze. You could probably knock someone out with this - likely yourself. Fitzroy.

Café Vue: St Kilda Road

No prizes for guessing that every plump sultana, and cranberry in Vue De Monde’s buns is the business, nor that these hefty rolls are $18 for a half dozen. They’re packing fruit, yet still somehow manage to be ethereally fluffy. Melbourne.

Candied Bakery

Bitter pith haters rejoice! These spiced buns have no peel and everything’s organic right down to the eggs and butter that make these rich rolls part cake and all awesome. Plus, you hit up their banoffee pie soft serve ice cream while you're there. Spotswood.

Filou's French Bakery

Glazed and also peel-free (viva la revolution!), they’re raisin- and apricot-stuffed and bready without having too much wild yeast action. The bakery is also opposite the cemetery, which seems appropriate. Carlton North.

Tivoli Road Bakery

Hot cross doughnuts! OK, so it's not a bun, but it is a fluffy sugar-coated disk filled with a spiced cream stacked with sultanas. How can you argue with that? South Yarra.
