Designer bakeries are apparently the new du jour. And as wanky as the proposition of specialist bread sounds, the potential for deliciousness overwhelms Kook’s aching self-conciousness. A second shop of the ever-hip St. Kilda bakery and coffee-maker Baker D. Chirico has opened in Carlton on Faraday Street. Not only does it sell bountiful offerings of beautiful and tasty bread, but it does so in a way-to-funky-for-a-breadshop interior. When you first walk in you may be forgiven for thinking an alien spaceship has crash-landed in Carlton with the sole purpose of selling us their fine bread. Well I for one say we welcome our new flour overlords. If you live or go to uni nearby then you’ll inevitably make it a staple on your daily journeys. Yes, there’s no coffee machine, but then if there’s one thing Lygon Street doesn’t need, it’s another place to buy a freaking latte.
Deets: 178 Faraday Street Carlton.
