Gordon Street Bakery, 63 Gordon Street, Footscray.
Much excitement has attended the arrival of a French bakery in Gordon Street, Footscray.
Several readers have contacted CTS to express their pleasure and curiosity.
For them and everyone else, we have good news – but we would also counsel patience.
The place is up and running – and baking.
But while it is done out in bright cafe style, the arrival of a coffee machine is a couple of weeks away.
The bakery is the work of Wilhelm Isaac (above), who tells me he’ll be providing simple in-house fare such as ham-and-cheese croissants and filled baguettes.
In the meantime, there’s goodies to go.
The baguette I take home is a ripper – crunchy, chewy, superb.
The kind of thing, in other words, that elevates the simple fillings I use – cheese, roast red capsicum, rocket, tomato – well into sublime.
OK, it IS Red Leicester I use – but that’s what is in the fridge.
And it isn’t it great to see Gordon Street Bakery join Karlaylissi in injecting some cool life into this dreary precinct?
Gordon Street Bakery is open 7am-5pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
