This pastry offshoot from Fortitude Valley's Agnes restaurant is pairing baked goods with coffee five days a week.
December 07, 2021
When Fortitude Valley restaurant Agnes hosted bakery pop-ups during Brisbane's lockdowns, it quickly became one of the city's favourite pastry spots. The sole problem: it only served up its baked goods while we were all stuck at home. Yes, that's why there was often a line stretching around the block.
Making stay-at-home stints brighter — and tastier — is a worthy cause, which Agnes Bakery has championed multiple times. Giving Brisbanites all the pastries they're hankering for all-year-round is just as great an aim, though. So, Agnes is now spinning out its bakery to its own site on the corner of James and Harcourt streets in Fortitude Valley, with the doors opening back in October.
Making its new home in a heritage-listed cottage, Agnes Bakery serves up a range of different sourdoughs and other pastries, spanning both sweet and savoury options. And, it has also brought over a few dishes from Agnes restaurant — so diners can enjoy them in a far more casual setting.
Here, the Agnes team is keen is to keep exploring the art of cooking with fire — and how that specifically applies when you're working with grains.
Coffee is also be on the menu, with Agnes Bakery operating from 7am–2pm Wednesday–Sunday.
