Best of Canberra – Bakery

By Alexandra Craig 22 September 2015 41

We’ve previously brought you Canberra’s best vanilla slice, hot cross buns, cupcakes, meat pies, donuts, pastries and cakes. Now it’s time to combine these categories into one: Canberra’s best bakery.

We’re looking for a bakery that not only has top notch baked goods (we’ll judge a few different products at each bakery), but also has great customer service and an easy to navigate layout.

I don’t often visit bakeries, but when I do I’m instantly reminded of my childhood when a new baker opened up down the road from my house. Those finger buns smothered with copious amounts of icing, and the pink cupcakes with m&m eyes and chocolate smiles were the best!

Whether it’s the freshly baked and still-warm bread, the flaky pastries, the melt in your mouth biscuits, or simply the happy faces behind the counter that greet you on each visit – I want to hear about it!

To vote for your favourite bakery, nominate them in the comments below. I’ll visit the two most popular choices and deliver the verdict in next Monday’s taste off (or should it be bake off?!)

What’s Your opinion?

BombaySapphire, I think the guys at the markets are from Pork Barrel near Old Parliament House. They do a great rye bread with caraway seeds. The cafe used to sell bread and cakes too but I haven’t been there for a while and don’t know if they still do. I second that nomination, anyway.

I like the pretzels at Autolyse, but I find the service really bad. I’ve walked out a couple of times without purchasing because the staff seemed more interested in their own conversations than in serving customers.

I agree with the Knead recommendation – makes a great refuelling stop after a Sunday morning swim at AIS. Silo is also really good, and Dobinson’s sourdough rolls are a favourite. Must try some of the other recommendations!
