It’s not secret that Brisbane is pretty awesome when it comes to the food scene. This is especially the case when it comes to sweet treats. Whether you’re busting for brownies or dying for a doughnut, we’ve assembled an unbeatable team of bakeries to meet your every whim. Bon appetit!
Best Place for Fruit Tarts
The winner of many awards (including a Best Palmier and two Best Providores, no less), Flour & Chocolate is a rustically attired artisan bakery with a real sense of charm to it. The owners are as friendly and chatty as they are talented, and make one of the best fruit tarts we’ve ever devoured. It’s dreamily crumbly shortcrust pastry with custard and fresh fruit, and should be tasted by all.
“Love this place! always a line up on the weekend but well worth the wait. They have speciality days too- my absolute favourite is Wednesday when they do donuts of all sorts. Absolutely delicious!” – sophiabruggemann
Best Place for Blonde Brownies
Whoever this Jocelyn is, she sure makes some damn fine provisions. This splendid bakery is proud of its traditional methods and attractively old-fashioned style, and you get a REAL sense of timelessness when you step inside. More importantly, however, Jocelyn makes the most richly flavoursome, gorgeously chewy white chocolate brownies in Brisbane. You’ll fall instantly in love!
“Great flavours, taste and presentation” – Enticemebrisbane
Best Place for Citrus Tarts
It might be widely renowned for its masterful breadmanship, but Banneton Bakery is certainly no stranger when it comes to the sweeter side of baking. Case in point: the citrus tart! This lip-smacking beauty is smothered in creamy lemon juice custard and glazed with a glistening flan gel finish, with a slice of lemon completing the culinary ensemble. Give it a try, and you’ll soon become a regular.

Best Place for Luxury Brownies
There’s always something intensely delicious and comforting about a brownie, fresh from the oven… This time, we’re off to Dello Mano, Brisbane’s legendary haven of specialist brownie artistry. Its famous Luxury Brownies are stuffed with authentic, top-grade Belgian chocolate, and the taste and texture are things that simply have to be experienced to be believed.
“Hands down the richest, gooiest brownies I have ever had! Whilst small in size you wouldn’t want any bigger because you definitely wouldn’t be able to eat it all. Absolutely delicious, would recommend the original and hazelnut flavours any day” – KatMcA
Best Place for Donuts
Nodo’s delectable donuts are free of gluten, entirely organic and baked fresh as a daisy every single day. There’s nothing dodgy in them and strictly no frying, making them perfect for those who seek a naughty treat without, well, the naughtiness. The flavours are super creative, including ‘Rocky Rose’, ‘Pumpkin Maple’ and ‘Valrhona beats’, so there’s always something interesting to sample!
