The bakery that never sleeps
Known for being open 24/7 and producing a wide range of unique and award winning pastries on their own premises, Bakery on O'Connell recently moved to a new location down the road. Their new site is a big improvement over their old one, with heaps more space. One of the staff informed us that they are now able to try out new recipes due to the new facilities. Bakery on O'Connell is also a regular caterer for corporate events and functions of various businesses and clubs.

Bakery on O'Connell, Nutella and Macadamia Cronut, Adelaide

One of their recent creations is the Nutella and Macadamia Cronut which was fluffy with its flavour enhanced by the coating of cinnamon sugar. The filling and topping of Nutella and macadamia nuts were absolutely delicious. Cronuts were first invented by Dominique Ansel. They are made from fried dough that is prepared in a similar manner as making puff pastry, with the end result being a cross between a croissant and a doughnut.

Nutella Bomb, a small doughnut filled with Nutella is another new product. The doughnut was light and fluffy with the Nutella filling enhancing its flavour. As with the Nutella and Macadamia Cronut, the coating of sugar helped to bring out its flavour. If you prefer, they also sell Jam Bombs with a filling of jam replacing the Nutella.

Inspired by the candy of the same name, the Malteser Slice was a welcome change from similar slices we have tried with a flavour that was not too sweet. The chewy cake-like base was contrasted nicely by what appeared to be a topping of white chocolate with Malteser pieces adding a bit of crunch.

Best eaten fresh, the Coffee Eclair had choux pastry that was cooked just right and perfectly partnered by fluffy cream filling and a subtle coffee-flavoured glaze on top of the éclair. The cream tends to ooze out when the éclair is eaten so it is best to eat it slowly to avoid leaving too much of a mess.

Bakery on O'Connell's Apple and Blueberry Crumble Pie had a delicious apple and blueberry filling with just the right amount of sweetness encased in buttery pastry. The crumble topping also had a delectable buttery taste with its crispness contrasting well with the filling. The crumble pies are also available with a filling of apple or apricot.

This bakery is also a café and has an inviting ambience and plenty of seatings should you choose to enjoy your pastries, pies and sandwiches there. This is another option to Café de Vili's when you are feeling peckish at odd hours of the day or night.

Scrumptious and no excuses not to go with being open 24/7 - great pics!
