Noisette Bakery is seeking to do away with old perceptions. Here is a bakery that prides itself on slick and sleek design in the first, as well a diverse menu beyond.
With an established bakery in Port Melbourne having already operated prior, the move to open a second location in Bentleigh was one Noisette could do with some strong experience.
Yet, on a strip already renowned for its cafes and eateries it is indeed a bold thing to set up shop. Looking at the menu however makes it clear Noisette has every reason be confident.
Whether it is an almond croissant, danish, apple crumble or escargot, it is clear that this bakery will stake out its claim for tasty treats in Bentleigh. And, not just in sweets but in bread also. Rye, sourdough, spelt, wholemeal and more is all on offer here. Further, alongside the chance to takeaway, the bakery is a fully-fledged cafe so grabbing a seat in the urban interior to enjoy your treat and the well-designed surrounds is encouraged.
A special word should be given to Noisette's website. It is rich in design and easy to access. Though this may seem a secondary concern - it is true great food and service is always foremost - readers would well know not every great local cafe or cake shop has a great website. The existence of one for Noisette not only makes them easy to find by friends but also signifies a real commitment across the board to quality.
Noisette: a new Bentleigh bakery intent on carving out its own niche, and indeed worth a call by for a pastry or pie.
My wife and I visited Noisette in Bentleigh a week or so ago. We happened to be in Bentleigh and chanced upon this trendy bakery/cafe.
The fit out is very nice but found the ready made baguettes to be on the small side and perhaps a little on the pricey side. I asked if they all had butter/margarine (not something I would normally have) and I was told they did, but when asked if they could make me one without I was told that they couldn't as they were all made offsite!!!
We finished up having a couple of baguettes and a couple of bottles of San Pel. We didn't sample any of the sweet pastries but they did look good.
In my mind, more a place for a pastry and coffee than lunch.
