Updated (Tuesday, 12 November): Daily Bread's final day at The Greenhouse Ponsonby is Sunday, 17 November.


Those yearning for a fresh-baked hazelnut croissant or sourdough loaf from Daily Bread will no longer need to make their way to Point Chevalier's old art deco bank. The bakery and deli run by Orphans Kitchen's Tom Hishon and Josh Helm, together with 22nd generation German baker Patrick Welzenbach, has arrived in Ponsonby for a limited time.

The newest outpost of Daily Bread can be found inside The Greenhouse — a new apartment complex being built on the corner of Williamson Avenue and Pollen Street. Taking over the former home of Glengarry Wines, the high-rise from Ockham Residential will eventually stand as the tallest building in the neighbourhood.

Until then, the venue's green glazed brick counter will serve as the destination for croissants, doughnuts, cardamom morning buns, pretzels, sarnies and the bakery's legendary sourdough which is made from a 600-year-old starter. Coffee Supreme will be meeting all caffeine requirements with its Daily Bread organic roast.

For those who would prefer not drop their house deposit on baked goods and coffee, sign up for more information about The Greenhouse here.

Daily Bread Ponsonby is open from 7am until 3pm at 16 Williamson Avenue.
