A piece of France is coming to Portside Wharf with the opening of new high-end boulangerie and salon de thé, Rise Bakery. Its chic fit-out is now underway ahead of its anticipated opening in April 2023.

Rise Bakery is curated by renowned French-born Chef Pâtissier Adrien Marcinowski and Chef Maxime Bournazel, and first launched in 2021 at the Gold Coast’s Sanctuary Cove.

Rise Bakery was born out of our desire to recreate an authentic experience of visiting pâtisseries and boulangeries with loved ones, just like we did growing up in France, from design and atmosphere to taste,” said Mr Bournazel. The luxurious fit-out has been designed by Brisbane based Clui Design, with builder the Lowry Group commencing work in January.

When complete, Rise Bakery will feature an elegant and glamourous French-style interior with hues of dreamy whites, soft pinks and accents of gold throughout our indoor and outdoor dining spaces, along with a champagne bar.”

When it comes to the menu, Mr Bournazel said customers would get a taste of everyday French staples that foodies around the globe have come to know and love. Rise Bakery will have all your French classics made fresh daily, including flaky croissants, pain au chocolat, artisan bread and delicious pâtisseries,” he said. Enjoying a freshly made pâtisserie with champagne is something everyone should experience.”

Brookfield Residential Properties Managing Director Lee Butterworth said Rise Bakery was the perfect addition to Portside Wharf’s diverse dining offerings. “We are delighted to welcome Chef Marcinowski, Chef Bournazel and the Rise Bakery team to Portside Wharf, bringing with them a touch of France to our riverside community,” he said.

Mr Butterworth said Rise Bakery would be taking up a high-profile tenancy near Portside Wharf’s northern entrance, which is currently under redevelopment as part of the precinct’s extensive makeover. “Rise Bakery plays a vital part in our vision to redefine the precinct and enhance our dining, retail and entertainment offerings for our vibrant local community to embrace and will be one of the first venues you see when you enter Portside Wharf,” he said.
