Mary Street Bakery
Now open in 4 locations; the CBD, City Beach, West Leederville and Highgate, Mary Street Bakery is famous for its Insta-worthy pastries, simple Aussie-style menu items and mouth-watering roasted coffee.

North Street Store
Did you know the crew at North Street bake a whopping 2500+ cinnamon scrolls a week? There’s a reason this tuck-shop style eatery is known for its lines out the door. Pop in for a coffee, a bite from their rotational takeaway menu or a fresh loaf of the crustiest bread in Cottesloe.
Bread in Common
No trip to Fremantle is complete without a visit to Bread in Common – a restaurant/bakery hybrid serving up delicious, locally-sourced eats in a spacious rustic warehouse. Its communal-dining philosophy makes for the perfect group hang, and its buzzing atmosphere is palpable whether you dine in or grab a loaf to takeaway.
Strange Grains Gluten Free Bakery
Strange Grains is a dedicated gluten free bakery famous for its award-winning loaves and rolls. Also stocking a range of GF hot cross buns (seasonally), cookies, tarts, cakes and slices, there’s a reason their newly-opened Shenton Park store also stocks over 200 establishments in the state.
Sorganic Sourdough Bakers
The new kids on the Rokeby Road block, Sorganic opened its doors in 2017 and is renowned for its handcrafted, artisan sourdough (if the name wasn’t indicative enough!) Their takeaway coffees, no-nonsense menu items and sweet treats are best enjoyed on the cafe’s quaint alfresco deck.
