Croissants in Melbourne
Oh croissants, how we adore thee! The epitome of buttery, flaky goodness, croissants in Melbourne are a true MVP of the food world in our book. Whether it's for breakfast, lunch, a snack or, hell, even dinner, we reckon croissants not only cover all bases, but they do so with style.
Luckily, with Melbourne's burgeoning cafe culture and coffee scene, delicious croissants are easy to get your mitts on. Here's where to head for the best croissants in Melbourne.
The Best Croissants in Melbourne
1. Lune Croissanterie
If you know your croissants, you'll know Lune Croissanterie.
Lune Croissanterie take their croissant-making seriously. Like, work-of-art level, seriously! They consider themselves to be a celebration of the creation, complexity and ultimate enjoyment of a croissant—and they offer utterly mouth-watering selections of both sweet and savoury goods.
Our pick? If you can get your hands on a Coconut Rough Croissant, you won't be disappointed. It's a twice-baked pain au chocolat jammed full of cocoa and coconut frangipane, and topped with flaked coconut and dark chocolate. Drool!

2. Baker Bleu
With two Victorian locations, Baker Bleu are predominantly masters of the sourdough craft. But their Hawksburn location in Prahan is home to a purpose-built pastry kitchen where they craft the dark art of sourdough viennoiserie. Even their plain croissants are a taste sensation, as buttery as they come and the perfect balance of crunchy and soft. In short, they are truly mouthwatering—and you won't regret a trip to Baker Bleu for some of the best croissants in Melbourne.
