There was an ulterior motive when we decided to visit Baked Patisserie for morning tea and it centred on the rumours of magnificent cronuts and macarons to rival the king of macaron – Adriano Zumbo! As a plus, this tucked-away patisserie appeals to kids with a range of sweet delights from an evolving menu.
Being in the industrial side of Kirrawee, Baked Patisserie doesn’t really fit with its surroundings. However they are building up quite a cult following and why wouldn’t they with mouth-watering treats, such as the Raspberry & Vanilla Cronut ($5), Macarons ($2.50) and a reasonable $4.00 for a large coffee.
Jenson didn’t care about which flavour macaron he wanted, he went for the brightest possible colour (green) – which I believe was Pistachio and was devoured with a nod of approval. I savoured my cronut without thinking that J would soon turn his eyes to the remaining half on my plate, and in his usual negotiating style asked that we share the rest as sharing is a nice thing to do. I can’t fault his approach!
Baked Patisserie certainly caters for the little people with a small train set set up alongside one wall to play with, a high chair for the littler ones, which is a good thing, as you want to savour the quality coffee on offer. These little additions, along with the friendly service, make this cafe very kid-friendly.
For the less sweet-tooth inclined, there are gourmet rolls ($7) and a pie warmer for more substantial offerings. (The Moroccan Pie stood out for me which sounded delicious). Another time perhaps!
Last Bite: Baked Patisserie is a place you are going to be adding to your regular café repertoire especially when your sweet tooth is calling and the kids are needing distraction. The constantly evolving menu also means there will be something new each time you visit.

Katia Barker is a 30-something stay-at-home mum to two beautiful (though sleep-adverse) children (Jenson 4 3/4 and Isla 22 months). Pre-baby life rendered a highly organised, efficient and calm advertising professional whose outlook on life was to absorb all of what life would throw at her. Now, all that is being thrown at her is food in its various incarnations. Katia’s new future includes educating and opening her children up to what the world has to offer, including food! and renovating her dream home (oh and getting that haircut which is seriously overdue!).
