This cafe/bakery sells award winning pastries, including their butter chicken pie winning a silver award in the Great Aussie Pie and Sausage Roll Competition and their entire range of pies and sausage rolls being awarded bronze too! As the name suggests, they offer a great selection of bread loaves, rolls and more too.

They have 17 flavours; lemon meringue, peanut butter & jam, choc crackle, caramel choc, raspberry tart, toasted almond, white choc red velvet, choc ripple cake, blueberry cheesecake, jaffa, caramel apple pie, banana crème brulee, freshly minted, crunchie crumble, Nutella, vanilla custard and raspberry jam!
They’re also amazing the taste buds of their customers with delicious vegemite scrolls, double baked croissants (with Nutella, berries or almonds), Danishes, pizza and cheese and bacon rolls, gingerbread cookies, quiche, cupcakes, finger buns, scrolls and more. Word on the street is, that they’re brewing up some great coffee too!
Vegans will be delighted with a portion of their delicious baked goods being vegan friendly too. Included in this range is jam doughnuts, apple scrolls, jam scrolls, coffee scrolls and cupcakes! If sweet pastries aren’t your thing; they look after you with vegan pasties as well. Some of their vegan goods are also gluten free. Given the bakeries popularity, it would be recommended calling ahead for availability, to avoid disappointment.
The Bread Roll Shop are well established and if you’re local to the area and following their social media accounts, you will have noticed they have a great sense of humour and love working together as a family. They have hilarious videos, such as their Star Wars Light Sabre Bread Stick and their "Six Pack" hot cross bun video.
We noticed their doughnuts and pastries attracting attention on social media and we had to check it out ourselves. I popped in with the kids and my son immediately noticed the Nutella M&M doughnut in window. Inside, we were instantly welcomed by Joanne, who has a warm and friendly personality.
My son’s excitement continued when he saw more M&M doughnuts inside too. As other customers walked through the door, the quality in their service that stood out, was that many of their customers were known by name. They would have a great laugh and it was obvious that they had been coming for years.
We eventually made our mind on what we wanted to try and it included the M&M Doughnut for my son, a vegan and gluten free chocolate cupcake for my daughter and a double baked berry croissant to share with my husband. Their sausage rolls had just finished baking in the oven and Joanne was kind enough to allow us to sample some for our lunch at EE Gunn Reserve after, which is a great park nearby.
After our park play, we returned home and dug into the amazing spread of pastries. All of the items we sampled were delicious. The kids absolutely loved it too. We definitely will be returning and understand why customers travel across Melbourne too!
