We like eating carbs and feeling righteous – hence our love for Loafer Bread. They exclusively use local, organic and biodynamic ingredients – from the Gippsland beef that fills the pies, to the certified organic stone milled flours, raisins and grains in every last loaf and cookie. The Fitzroy North bakery supplies their ethical wares to eco-conscious cafés Slow Poke, and Cheshire, and is a stirling café itself. We’re all about getting a mixed box of their buttery shortbread biscuits, or snaffling a curbside table, fair trade coffee and climbing between the layers of a flaky butter croissant and the most densely nut-populated walnut and cinnamon scroll in town. Pastries are hot property; so don’t dilly-dally getting there in the AM.
