The latest addition to the King Street dining precinct, King Street Bakery, is now open and ready to share its offerings. Diners can pull up a bar stool at King Street Bakery’s expansive glass windows with a view of the pastry-making, and observe bakers laminating croissants, folding danishes, and scoring loaves ready for the oven.

Inspired by the artisan bakery traditions from the villages of France, King Street Bakery is the brioche, baguette, and white bread we all know and love, with a touch of dine-in fine food focus. An array of Viennoiseries, sweet and savoury tarts, and (of course) fresh, crusty bread are made in-store every day, and ready to take home or enjoy with a coffee – or a wine! King Street Bakery is fully licensed, and stocks premium European and Australian wines and beers.

Chefs Tara Bain and Jamie Pearce have developed an a la carte menu with strong French influences to highlight the bakery’s offerings, and pay homage to the refined French focus of sibling venue Montrachet. Open from 6:30 every morning, King Street Bakery is a great spot for early-risers to enjoy breakfasts starring the bakery’s fresh bread. Come lunchtime, the bread takes a supporting role whilst an array of other options become the main focus.

Owners Shannon and Clare Kellam, describe the King Street Bakery team as “second to none,” and it is easy to see why. Boasting combined experience at Nobu, The Savoy, Quay, much-loved Paris bakery Lenôtre, and competing in the Bocuse d’Or, this is one team of chefs and bakers dedicated to dishing up top-notch dishes and danishes.

After teasing passersby with the smell of freshly-baked bread, King Street Bakery has finally opened their doors to reveal a spread of baked goods and dine-in dishes to fill up the bread basket.
