Sugardough Panificio & Patisserie┬áis a great little find on Lygon St – cafe-like quality, service and atmosphere with bakery prices!

B and I met up there for lunch and the pretty pastel place was teeming with hip singles, students studying and mums and bubs – some dining in, others swinging by to buy their fresh crusty bread. Most of the lunch offerings are in the glass cabinet and are standard bakery items such as quiches, pies, sandwiches and cakes which are reheated. The difference is that everything is made on site and they advertise that they ‘strive to keep their ingredients free range, organic, fair-trade and seasonal where possible’.

The front room is pretty squeezy so wheel yourself down the corridor to the spacious back courtyard, with more tables and a large square communal table placed under the shade. Potted plants, kitschy knick knacks and mis-matched chairs abound.

B and I shared a slice of quiche and two pies (yes the pies are that good!), all around $7-8 from memory when they could easily be over $10 at a cafe.

All the baked goods were housed in delicious buttery pastry and with fresh piping hot ingredients inside. No microwaved sogginess here! You can choose to accompany them with a scrunch of daily changing salad (in this instance, roast pumpkin, rocket and Israeli couscous) and a pot of homemade tomato relish.

As for the sweet stuff, the girl behind the counter took great delight in introducing me to the many of the nibbles on offer (love it when staff are enthusiastic about their product). I hear that the bomboloni and cornetto are the way to go, but I was swayed by the treacle tart. Made move – it was a sticky, overly sweet failure in a very blah shortcrust. So unexciting I didn’t even bother taking a picture (brown, brown and more brown). Next time, bomboloni!
