Guide to the Best Pastries in Melbourne (2024)

December 20, 2023
best pasteries in Melbourne

Melbourne is no stranger to delicious food and drink. A melting pot of peoples from all over the world, their cultures and cuisines blending into a mouthwatering harmony, Melbourne has sprawling main streets that offer more food than you can physically indulge in before you are patting a food baby, slowly inching towards a food coma. 


With such a vast coffee scene in Melbourne, it would be rude not to have a buttery pastry on the side. Whether you have a sweet tooth or favour the savouries, come along on this journey as we tell you all about where you can find the best pastries Melbourne has to offer. 


Noisette – Port Melbourne, Bentleigh, Kew

Founded by David Menard, a 5th generation baker, Noisette is a page in a history that began with his great grandfather before 1825. From the traditional bread that was made lovingly in his great-grandfather’s first boulangerie to the variety of sweet and savoury pastries Noisette now has to offer, Menard’s ode to his family’s history and legacy is one to behold. 

At French Patisserie Noisette, you’ll find all sorts of delicious treats, from almond croissants and danishes to apple crumble and escargot. Not to mention, the bakery offers an impressive variety of bread, including rye, sourdough, spelt, and wholemeal.

Plus, in addition to takeaway service, the bakery functions as a full-fledged cafe–so you can enjoy your treat along with the well-designed interior surroundings. Test your decision making skills, and walk away happy with more food than you need. 


By Garon – Brunswick

best pasteries in melbourne by Garon

The brainchild of Garon De Angelis-Pearce, By Garon was born from a frustration that there was nowhere to purchase quality French pastries locally. Now, By Garon shoulders the burden by providing decadent sourdough croissants and flavourful coffee crafted from coffee beans from all over the world. Evolving from the textbook French patisserie techniques, By Garon even goes as far as to offer patisserie inventions such as the ‘Crumpling’ and the ‘Cronut.’ 

Grab yourself a classic croissant, or even a filled croissant flavoured with chocolate, strawberry, or matcha. And who can resist a twice-baked almond croissant? And if you really can’t decide which treat to choose, get yourself a multi-pack!

If a sweet pastry isn’t what you’re looking for, don’t miss the savoury Crumpling! By Garon has something for everyone. 


Lune – Melbourne CBD, Fitzroy, Armadale

Lune Croissanterie redefines French patisserie like no other. The humble croissant is elevated to a precise science at Lune, with their perseverance for excellence evident in each visible, delicate layer of pastry. They claim not to be a shop or a factory, but the very celebration of the creation, complexity, and the ultimate enjoyment of a croissant. Founded by Kate Reid (an ex Formula 1 aerodynamicist) in 2012, Lune has transcended from a one-woman show to a five-site bakery. 

You would be remiss to not try a traditional French croissant from Lune, which is developed over 3 days. But you will be spoilt for choice nonetheless, with various croissants and danish pastries, as well as savoury pastries. Not to mention the monthly specials that the team at Lune develop using their endless creativity and dedication to their craft. Get in early though, as the cult-following Lune has amassed over the years means that there are queues around the block for a slice of pastry heaven.
