If you're struggling to remember a time when you didn't have a craving for Lune Croissanterie's world-class, New York Times-approved pastries, that's probably because the cult-favourite bakery has been around for an entire decade. Yep, the Melbourne-born croissant haven has been in our lives for ten whole years — and in a huge win for fans in Melbourne, it's celebrating its milestone birthday with a month full of buttery, flaky specials.

In fact, for the month of October, Lune will be tripping back in time and reviving some of its all-time greatest hits. Each weekend, it's set to drop a limited run of one of its best-loved creations, available only from the OG Fitzroy store and Lune's new Armadale outpost.

October's roll-call of favourites will be kicking off with a special appearance from the famed black forest croissant, which had us all drooling when it featured on season 11 of MasterChef. The decadent dessert is baked with sweet cherry jam and chocolate frangipane, stuffed full of chocolate mousse, whipped cream and maraschino cherries, and then sprinkled with tempered chocolate and a salted chocolate crumb.

It'll be available from both stores from Saturday, October 1–Sunday, October 2, though with limited numbers of the treat being whipped up, you'll want to get in quick. Each of the following four weekends will feature a different re-release from Lune's star-studded back catalogue — keep an eye on the bakery's Instagram to find out what's coming up next.

If all those croissants leave you inspired to hit the kitchen yourself, you'll also be able to get your hands on founder Kate Reid's first cookbook, Lune Croissants: All Day, All Night, from early November.

Lune started life back in 2012 as a pint-sized store in Elwood. The brand then moved into its now famous Fitzroy warehouse space, before opening a second store in the CBD in 2018. It's since expanded into Brisbane with two outposts in the Queensland capital, and is set to launch in Sydney next year, too.

Lune's tenth birthday specials will be available each weekend of October at Lune Fitzroy (119 Rose Street, Fitzroy) and Lune Armadale (835 High Street, Armadale).
