When an Aussie is making the best croissants outside of France, you best believe we’ll do anything we can to get our hands on them.
Sadly for anyone living outside Melbourne, the croissants in question are only usually available in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy. But, next week, Lune Croissanterie will land in Sydney for one day only for a one-day pop-up hosted by Gourmet Traveller.
Kate Reid, Lune founder and master baker, has resisted moving her operation outside of its slick Melbourne set-up out of fear it would compromise the quality of the product she spends three days making, every single time. Fortunately, the beloved bakers at Sonoma have made their A+ facilities available to Lune for the event.
The pop-up will open at 12pm on Thursday, August 24, at Paramount Coffee Project at 80 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills. You’ll need to flash a copy of the September issue of Gourmet Traveller to get a hold of that pastry perfection.
Lune is as famed for its light, buttery croissants as the ’round-the-block queues they attract before dawn every weekend, so it’s in your best interest to get there early, especially given only 500 will be available on the day.
If you miss out, the Lune Croissanterie is permanently located at 119 Rose Street in Fitzroy. Good luck.
