Eat: Red Door Bakery

A beautiful sunny Saturday morning provided the perfect excuse to head out for a little drive to the other side of town. After a tough week of joblessness (note sarcasm), I decided it was time for a treat. Off we ventured to Queen St, Croyden, having heard good things, but not knowing exactly what to expect.

I presumed with the name Red Door Bakery, there would be a giant red door greeting me. I’ll admit I was a little bit disappointed. But that would prove to be my first and last disappointment of the Red Door experience..
Expect to be awed. Whilst the range is not overly extensive, the display of goodies is seriously impressive. I felt like I could literally smell and feel the love in the air. Gareth and Emma Grierson own and operate the bakery, along with a beautiful and friendly team of staff. These are passionate people, duly proud of their product.
Pork and sage sausage roll. Ask for extra chilly jam!
Lemon fizz with house made lemon gelato. Perfect to wash down the chilly hit.
Roast pumpkin, caramelised onion and Persian feta pizza. Folded in half and toasted for easy cutlery free eating.
Almond croissant. Authentically made with day old croissants and generously filled with crème d'amande. These usually sell out FAST so you want to get in early.
Crème brûlée tart. OMG. I can’t even begin to describe the perfection of this dessert. Just do yourself a favour and get one. Amazing. Really, truly amazing.
For me, this place lived up to the hype. I’m so glad I don’t live close by because that would just be too dangerous.
