Red Door Bakery, Croydon

After a light brunch at Queen Street Cafe, N and I walk a few steps down and step foot inside Red Door Bakery – my favourite bakery in Adelaide for a hit of carbs… there’s always room for some carbs and sugar… unfortunately! 😛

The bakery is small, with very limited seating by the windows and outside, the bread is FRESH, the kitchen is open so feel free to ‘peek’ at the bakers hard at work and the tarts are beyond amazing.

Creme brulee tart; $4.50

THIS is well worth the trip from anywhere. The tart is amazing – the crack you get upon bite after bite through the torched top, the sweet smooth creme brulee paired with the tart pastry… omnomnomnom. I’m drooling just thinking about it! I actually made the trip to get one of these babies this past weekend but unfortunately for me, they were sold out and there was a wait of 30 minutes for the next fresh batch. I’ll be back!!

Chorizo and caramelised onion bread stick, olive and rosemary bread stick; $3.00 each

Also scored myself a gigantic loaf of sour dough bread ($6.50) which I managed to annihilate over the course of 24 hours… so good, yet so bad. Seriously, this place is deadly… so carboholics, BEWARE!

      Maybe it can go on your ‘Must Try List in SA’ 😉

    Hey I came across this entry while looking up opening times for wasai and it thoroughly convinced Chinga and I to go check it out. Well a simple spy mission turned into $30 worth of pastries which we demolished in the following hour. Thank you for the great review! xo
