I will only write about places that I've had a great experience. There are so many local heroes around Adelaide and I want to try and share them all.
Published June 11th 2016
I love French pastries, so I took much delight in visiting, tasting and photographing some of my favourite French Patisseries around Adelaide.

Short of the Parisian architecture and general vibe, if you close your eyes, the below Patisseries will at least take your taste buds to Paris.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and if you have any other favourite Patisseries around town.

Bon Appetite

Mulots Patisserie King William Rd
Pear Pastry, Mont Blanc & Chocolate Eclair

Mulots is one of Adelaide's original French Patisseries; Located on prestigious King William Rd [Hyde Park], Mulots has been serving up delectable, hand-crafted pastries for the past three decades.

Ranging from savoury quiches to large tarts and gateaux to individual pastries and sweets - Just looking through the cabinet is often enough to make your mouth water.

Parking: Parking can be found anywhere along King William Rd or in the small car park at rear.

By Blackbird
By Blackbird Patisserie King William Rd
Croissant Amandes & Plum Danish - Note The Black Bird In The Corner

Like their neighbours Mulots, By Blackbird are also located on King William Rd; travel a little further north, away from KWR's busy center and you will find this trendy cafe and patisserie.
Head Pastry Chef Chakey Kim may not be French but she sure knows her stuff; Chakey and her team create fresh artisan Pastries daily, not to mention incredible gateaux and baked goods.

Parking: Parking can be found along King a William Rd or in their private car park (access from Grace St).

Cannelle Croissanterie
Cannelle Magill Rd

The un-assuming shop front, doesn't do justice, to the artisan pastries that await you inside. The Croissanterie's French Pastry Chef has really brought a piece of Paris to Adelaide. From traditional croissants to Danishes to Brioche.

You can read my article on Cannelle here.

Address: 123B Magill Road Stepney, SA 5069
Opening Times: 7days, 5:30am -12:30pm (unless sold out prior and they usually sell out early)
Phone: 83634200
Parking: I am usually lucky enough to find a park out the front of the store along Magill Rd, other wise there is parking on the many side streets.

Aux Fines Bouches
Aux Fines Bouches Brighton Rd
Blueberry Cheesecake, Honeycomb Dome & Duo Chocolat

Aux Fines Bouches is an award winning Patisserie amidst the hustle and bustle of Brighton Rd. Proprietor and French Pastry Chef Richard Le Deunff and his team create traditional and modern French Pastries and gateaux. There is a small savoury menu that changes seasonally but main event is truly the cabinet of divine delicacies.

Croissants are only available on Saturdays, be warned they sell out very early, so it's best to pre-order.

My article on Aux Fines Bouches can be read here.

Tue-Fri: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Aux Fines Bouches at 496 Brighton rd, Brighton. Delicious abundance of cakes on offer, you can also choose from a simple meal menu and enjoy an array of coffee. Only downfall is that they are not open 7 days, small shop so if you are a party of more than two, you may want to book.

Have to agree with you re: Aux Fines Bouches as a very fine french patisserie indeed! I'm a Brighton local - everything I've tried there is delicious and their hot chocolate or mocha is made with real chocolate!

We are so fortunate in Adelaide to have a number of very fine French patisseries. My absolute favourites are Les Deux Coqs in Central Narket and on Prospect Rd, and Murattis, on Prospect Rd. Also not to be missed the lively By Blackbird which has just moved to 231 Hutt Street, and Maison Clement in Central Market.

Love By Blackbird and Aux Fines Bouches, and would add Muratti's on Prospect Road, Prospect - also full of delectable goodies.

I can only agree with all those recommendations, great taste :) Did you know that Blackbird moved to Hutt Street now? I absolutely adore the croissants there! Since you love French pastries, can I recommend you to try the Bakery stall at central market right in between the 2 cheese stalls... I bet you will enjoy :)
