Candied Bakery is a bakery sensation in Spotswood and another success in the West. Unlike almost any bakery I've been to this place hums with quality, style and imagination. This is about nuances with quality ingredients and friendly interesting spaces to dine and imbibe. Candied Bakery turns the staid quaint bakery concept on its head with its modern offerings and fit out.
The Candied Bakery concept has been influenced by bakeries, food and flavours encountered by Toula and Orlando on trips to the USA and Europe. The most influential being a trip to New York City and San Francisco in 2011.
Candied Bakery serves up superb pastries like the one above.
Candied Bakery also gets you going with doughnuts that excite more than bring guilt. Italian custard that will make you groan. These ended up being a treat for the office staff - beats the usual drab office cakes.
Another Candied Bakery signature product, and a favourite from Toula and Orlando’s NYC trip, is the Apple Pie Shake – essentially a slice of apple pie in milk, blended. “We loved them when we tried them in New York and we thought, ‘We’re a bakery, we make pies, why not a pie shake?”, says Orlando.
Candied Bakery stimulates with its catchy displays of product. The difficulty is in the choosing.
Candied Bakery is famous for its hot cross buns - close to Easter they are hard to get such is the demand.
The coffee is also excellent at Candied Bakery. And don't forget the organic bakery bread!
Check out this hot cross bun with its quality fruit and glaze.
I enjoyed the Croque Monsieur at Candied Bakery - one of the best I've had in Melbourne. For a start the bread was superb - one assumes made on site.
Candied Bakery is well worth a visit (and will probably become a regular destination once you sample their bakery goodness). From experience its worth visiting earlier in the day when delicacies are in supply (can be sold out). Highly recommended.
