Armed with discerning taste buds refined in France and a passion for authentic flavours, our staff and teachers have scoured Sydney to curate a list of the finest croissants that the city has to offer.
Our journey begins at Flour and Stone, nestled in the heart of Woolloomooloo. Renowned for their artisanal techniques, Flour and Stone delivers a croissant experience like no other. Each croissant is the perfect blend of light, flaky layers and buttery richness, making them an absolute must-try for anyone seeking an authentic taste of France in Sydney.
Perched in in Surry Hills, the enticing aroma of freshly baked pastries makes Lavie & Belle Bakery difficult to resist. Once inside, you'll find yourself in a paradise of French-inspired delights where every week something new is being being baked. Lavie & Belle Bakery has truly mastered the art of crafting exceptional croissants, delivering a golden, crisp exterior that gives way to the luxuriously soft, buttery layers within.
In Maroubra, Label Baguette's dedication to traditional French baking techniques shines through in every pastry, earning them a well-deserved spot on our list. Take your tastebuds on a journey to the heart of France with their exquisite croissants. Each bite is a symphony of textures, combining a flaky exterior with a melt-in-your-mouth interior.
For a touch of French elegance, look no further than Metropole Cafe. Tucked away in the bustling Queen Victoria Building, their croissants are a true testament to the French dedication to quality and craftsmanship. Whether perfectly paired with a cup of espresso or as a standalone treat, their iconic viennoiseries are a sublime indulgence.
Surry Hills strikes again with another gem – Bourke St Bakery. A beloved institution among locals, this bakery has mastered the art of creating croissants that are both comforting and sophisticated. The layers are light, the butter is rich, and the flavour is simply divine. Bourke St Bakery is a must-visit for croissant enthusiasts seeking perfection.
Bondi beckons with François Artisan Baker, a haven for those seeking an authentic taste of France by the sea. The croissants here are a work of art, showcasing the skill and passion of the bakers. The layers are delicately folded, creating a pastry that is visually stunning and a joy to devour. We'd say they were almost too good to eat - but we certainly didn't hesitate!
We couldn't create a list of our favourite croissants without mentioning our local go-to. Right here in Alliance Française's historical building in the heart of the Sydney CBD, Wholegreen Bakery stands out for its commitment to quality gluten-free ingredients and mindful baking. Their croissants, though a departure from the traditional, offer a delicious coeliac-friendly alternative that is both indulgent and satisfying.
