Kenilworth Country Bakery Is Bringing Its Famed Coffee- and Hot Chocolate-Filled Doughnuts to Bribie Island
Before 2023 is out, you'll have a third place to visit to grab sweet treats from this Sunshine Coast favourite.
October 18, 2023
Who doesn't love a country bakery? For a pie or sausage roll on a road trip — then a finger bun or lamington, too — they're a must-stop pitstop no matter the destination. The best of them can be worth the trip alone, as fans of Kenilworth Country Bakery know. Soon, everyone hankering for its oven-fresh wares will have three places to head to.
Already a favourite on the Sunshine Coast with venues in its namesake hinterland town and in Mooloolaba, Kenilworth Country Bakery has announced a third outpost on Bribie Island. That makes hitting the highway for a coffee- or hot chocolate-filled doughnut a much quicker affair for Brisbanites, with the new site set to be open before the end of 2023.
If you're new to the bakery, it's particularly famous for that special menu item, which does indeed involve pouring coffee or hot chocolate into a doughnut. Ordering a cuppa and a round orb of dough separately is a thing of the past here. Instead, the doughnuts are hollowed out, then filled with your choice of beverage (an espresso shot and milk if you go for the caffeinated option).
Also a highlight at Kenilworth Country Bakery's Kenilworth site: one-kilogram bites both savoury and sweet. Cue chocolate-covered doughnuts, strawberry-iced doughnuts, jam- and cream-filled doughnuts, Nutella and cream doughnuts, Gaytime-flavoured versions and sausage rolls all on offer at that weight. If your tastebuds are tempted, you can take the challenge, which spans ordering one online in advance, finding it waiting when you arrive at Kenilworth, eating it in-store, and then getting your money back and a plate on the bakery's wall of fame if you finish it all.
Exactly where on Bribie Island you'll be able to enjoy Kenilworth Country Bakery's goodies hasn't yet been revealed, nor has an exact launch date other than by the end of 2023.
The new opening will come just shy of the bakery's 100th anniversary, with the OG site operating since 1924. Its Kenilworth venue sits in a heritage-listed building, unsurprisingly — which makes it still worth a trip even when the Bribie Island outpost opens.
