Just how many bakeries can one shopping centre intersection support?

By johnboy - 7 December 2008 25

I was struck by this scene the other day. It’s the ground floor of the Canberra Centre, just outside the Supabarn.

You’ve got a Dobinson’s, a Bakers Delight, and a Golden Crust all within a croissant’s throw of each other.

On top of that, if baked goods are your thing, there’s a Muffin Break, a Donut King, and I’m pretty sure Supabarn does a selection of baked things too.

Choice is good, let the market decide and all that, but a shopping centre is hardly a free market.

Is this overkill? Or would you like more bakeries crammed cheek by jowl?

Krispy Kreme is glorious. I’ve never been so happy to have type 2 diabetes.

ant, you can do exactly that outside the Coles in Gungahlin. I think it’s a Donut King, but it might be a Wendy’s, either way, it has the little conveyor belt and you can watch your waistline and their donuts expand before your very eyes. Yummo!

I remember when doughnuts used to be nice. There was a Woolworths in petrie plaza, where Centrepoint is now, and there was a doughtnut machine in the window, plopping out doughnuts into teh oil. They’d make a little journey through the oil, and then get dumped in the sugar/cinnamon mix at the end. A bag of those on a winter’s day was like being in heavan.

I cannot understand the popularity of those cold ones with icing on them. argh.

Holden, Johnboy, you have made this mans day.

I agree Holden, I am appauled that the same word is used to describe a ring of hot fresh battery, cinnamon-ey deliciousness, cooked fresh infront of your eyes and also a cold stale, preservative soaked abomination smothered in fat and icing.

Now, to start applying for jobs in civic.

Golden crust is cheapest if you don’t mind shit food (which I can’t stand). Otherwise 2$ cinamon scroll at Subabarn is the best buy
