Lune Is Bringing Back Its Coveted Apple Pie Twice-Baked Croissants Just for Father's Day
Vying to become your dad's favourite? Best your siblings by grabbing him one of these rare pastries, which are only available for three days.
August 29, 2023
Head into Lune Croissanterie's Melbourne and Brisbane stores any day of the week, and world-famous pastries await. Also on the menu: limited-time treats that you'll need to be speedy to enjoy. Usually, the Kate Reid co-founded chain swaps out its specials monthly; however, it also likes dropping particularly coveted bites for certain occasions. One such instance: the return of its apple pie twice-baked croissants just for Father's Day.
Lune hasn't dropped its full range of September specials at the time of writing, but it has revealed that this one pastry will be back between Friday, September 1–Sunday, September 3 only. Vying to become your dad's favourite? Best your siblings by grabbing him one of these rarities. Fancy one (or more) for yourself? That's 100-percent acceptable as well.
The apple pie twice-baked croissants are making a comeback for the first time in years — since Lune was in Elwood in Melbourne, in fact. These days, the chain has sites in Fitzroy, the CBD and Armadale in the Victorian capital, plus South Brisbane and Burnett Lane in Brisbane. (Not one but two Sydney venues are in their works, but not in time for Father's Day).
What is an apple pie twice-baked croissant? It's a croissant, obviously, with apple purée and hazelnut frangipane as fillings — and apple pie filling itself, too. Then, on top, it features hazelnut frangipane and hazelnuts, plus whipped cream and coconut streusel. Sadly, if your dad isn't able to eat nuts, or you aren't, you'll need to give it a miss.
Lune expects the special to be particularly popular, and recommends arriving early across the apple pie twice-baked croissant's three-day window.
You can collect it at all stores for $15 per croissant — and it's an in-store only bite, so it won't be available to order online.
Lune's apple pie twice-baked croissants are available from all stores — Fitzroy, the CBD and Armadale in Melbourne, and South Brisbane and Burnett Lane in Brisbane — for $15 from Friday, September 1–Sunday, September 3 only.
