Vive la hot cross buns (by Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie)


The holy hot cross bun is a comforting Easter treat, easing the guilt from one too many chocolate eggs.

The sweet snack is popular throughout Commonwealth nations and the USA, but Perth is also treated to French twists on the sweet snack

Find Perth's best hot cross buns in this list.

Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie - 333 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco - (08) 9381 7968; 26 Oxford Close , West Leederville - (08) 9381 1235;
Patisseries usually don't dabble with hot cross buns but Jean-Claude is a delightful exception. The French aren't known for super-sized portions and their baked goods are no different but these petite buns manage to satisfy.

The airy dough is warm, soaking up butter like a satisfied sponge. Each of the best elements of a hot cross bun - the sweetness of the currants and raisins, colouring of the cinnamon streaks, and the stickiness of the smooth glaze coating, are perfectly balanced.

Order 6 for $10 online.
Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie at Subiaco is open weekdays 6am - 6pm.


Mary Street Bakery - 507-509 Beaufort St, Highgate - 0499 509 300; 272 Railway Pde, West Leederville - 0498 880 012; Allendale Square, 77 St Georges Tce, Perth - 0497 771 334;
Mary Street's buns are slowly but surely rising to the occasion, signalled by the shimmering cross atop a darkened glaze.

Organic golden Sun Muscat raisins burst through the crust of the dense dough, dotted with zesty orange and lemon peel and scented with spicy ginger and subtle vanilla.

Mary Street Bakery at Highgate is open 7 days a week, 7am - 4pm.

X marks the spot (by Lawleys)


Abhi's Bread - 270 South Terrace, South Fremantle - (08) 9430 4373;
Occasionally the bakers at Abhi will dabble with a rotated X or a smiley face to mark their creations. But during Easter, their hot cross buns return to tradition with a thick, straight cross emblazoned over a smooth hot cross bun.

Healthy sprinklings of juicy raisins avoid the excess of sweet and sticky glaze on inferior buns. Choose from organic wheat or spelt dough, enjoying the simple pleasure of slathering butter over the warm surface before eating.

Abhi's is open weekdays 6.30am - 5pm, Sat 6.30am - 4pm and Sun 7am - 1pm. They are also at the Stirling and Manning Farmers Markets on weekends.


Jean-Pierre Sancho - 878 Hay St, Perth - (08) 9444 1904; 111 St Georges Terrace, Perth - (08) 9444 1904;
Jean-Pierre can be forgiven for trying a French twist on an English staple, as the people of Perth have approved, buying thousands of his hot cross buns last Easter.

Using a sweet brioche bun, he's resisted the urge to add chocolate, balancing the sweetness of the firm dough with a colourful helping of in-house orange peel, finished with aromatic cardamom and nutmeg.

Jean-Pierre Sancho on Hay St is open weekdays 7am - 5pm and weekends 8am - 5pm.

Where's the 6th hot cross bun? (by Jean-Pierre Sancho)


Lawleys Bakery Cafe - 616 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley - (08) 9328 6866;
Traditionalists and chocolate lovers can rejoice with Lawleys' latest batch of baked beauties.

The classic hot cross bun is all about the dough, hearty and chewy, slowly baked and topped with a coarse cross.

Best enjoyed while warm to bring out the zing from a spoonful of orange puree and ginger spice. Look out for the bursts of sweetness from a modest drizzling of dried fruit, bringing smiles with each bite.

If too much chocolate is barely enough, grab a box of the choc variety, satisfying your cocoa fix.

Lawleys Bakery Cafe at Mount Lawley is open 7 days a week, 6am - 6pm. Check the cafes page on their website for contact details and directions to their other locations, including Shenton Park, Wembley, North Beach, Wembley Downs, Fremantle, Malaga, Osborne Park, and Mount Claremont Markets.
