Keep your health and budget intact whilst indulging
This is my all time favourite made with real ingredients baked on the premises.
Over summer, however, it was clear Ranga's Bakery was not a secret any more so I'm now ready to share the reason behind this success story. Firstly, this bakery is open 7 days. That means anytime I have a whim for baked cheesecake, a spinach and ricotta roll or even an organic coconut juice from their fridge selection, I can just walk on down my street and indulge.
The tastings change so often with new bakery treats on offer all the time.
Having been a health nut for the majority of my life, the first thing I did to the lovely Sarah and Dean is grill them mercilessly on their ingredients given other bakeries in the region were using questionable contents. I was stunned when Sarah took that so well and proudly but humbly let me know that their ingredients were definitely in the healthy eating category. The food is baked in front of you on the premises and they are very happy to not only answer questions about their ingredients but to also make loaves to order to cater for special dietary requirements.
Specialty breads can be made to order. Nothing is a problem for Dean and Sarah of Ranga's Bakery McCrae
You may know of the McCrae shops, but Ranga's is up the hill a bit so follow Lonsdale St from the beach, up over the bridge, turn right at the roundabout and look for Ranga's on your left in the small group of shops.
A counter full of healthier options for the savoury and sweet lover.
I love the inviting atmosphere of this place. Large natural timber tables and soft bench seats make it perfect for a small group meeting. I have conducted a meeting there shortly after Ranga's opened and Sarah and Dean looked after us like VIPs which impressed my guests.
After this incredible description of such a wonderful bakery/ cafe, we drove down to the peninsula to try out the place last Wednesday, February 20th. Disappointment plus! We ended up seeking out another nearby venue, as we were hungry after having driven from Melbourne. The McCrae Pavillion chosen at random, proved to be exceptionally good and a favourite with locals.
