Get in early for delicious bakery treats
Experts say that the simple things in life are often the best... yet in the hustle and bustle of 21st century living, do we really believe it - or more to the point - do we really want it?

The answer is a resounding YES.

This home truth was never more apparent than when I first discovered the Trawool Bakery in Box Hill North. Set at the end of a small cluster of shops in a quiet suburban street, it is the kind of place that many of us pass by on our way to bigger, bolder places with names that bellow to our taste buds. Trawool Bakery, on the other hand, merely whispers.

Trawool Bakery: a little suburban gem.

Inside the bakery, two generous glass display cabinets take centre stage, each housing an array of sweet treats like lamingtons, custard tarts, yo-yos and jam tarts, whilst on top of each cabinet are more mouth watering favorites like hot cross buns, muffins, danish pastries, croissants and sugar dusted jam donuts. Warning: donut and pastry lovers would be wise to get in early - their popularity amongst those in the know means that they are frequently sold out well before lunch time, especially on Saturdays.

Lots of lovely baked goods to choose from.

Behind the counter stand several traditional wire bread racks, each brimming with an assortment of rolls, loaves and baguettes of various shapes and sizes. Once again, if you plan to visit on a Saturday, get in early, as popular weekend lunch items like French sticks sell out quickly.

Tempting sweet treats of all sizes.

Trawool Bakery are known to cook up a great savoury treat too - so if you're in the mood for a warm lunch or snack, be sure to browse the selection of pies, meat or vegetable pasties, spinach and traditional sausage rolls, all encased in a light, flaky homemade pastry.

A proud and active participant in the local community, Trawool Bakery may not be widely known, but the organizations it supports often are. Most recently, they have pledged their support for the fundraising efforts of the Koonung branch of the Australian Breastfeeding Association and Woodhouse Grove Kindergarten through the sale of hot cross buns.
