This is my all time favourite made with real ingredients baked on the premises.

Our local secret is out. I have been very reluctant to review this marvelous McCrae gem as, well, I was selfishly keeping it for the grateful locals.

Have you ever seen such tempting tasting plates?

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.

Preservatives and colourings have been kept to an absolute minimum to ensure happy kids..which equals happy big kids.

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.

Cheesecake lovers happiness.

If any budding writers, coffee connoisseurs or fellow philosophers are in the area please let me know and I can run on down and give a big peninsula welcome.

Your Comment
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.

It's Easter 2014 and I hope all visitors to the Mornington Peninsula are enjoying Ranga's treats.
I'm away so please share what new goodies are on offer.
