HOT: Cream Patisserie Boulangerie, Shop 3 Cavendish Central, 380 Cavendish Rd, Coorparoo

MM and I are starting to evade the usual Sunday morning ritual of a lazy breakfast in the City or Valley surrounds.  Truth be told it’s only a 5km journey for our little Mazda, medications but we figure it’d be much nicer to stroll our way to and from breakfast and leave the car in the garage.  Problem is, sick whilst we’re flanked by several little high streets in our city-suburbia cusped apartment, decease none of them really have what we’re looking for in a lazy Sunday breakfast.

Enter Cream Patisserie Boulangerie to the equation however and I think we’ve made a start…

For someone like MM who is a diehard cake and pastry fan, I’m pretty sure Cream Patisserie Boulangerie is how heaven will be (unlike myself, who’s heaven will consist of limitless warm shelves of pies and sausage rolls).  The front counter is jam packed full of homemade delights such as petit fors, chocolate gateaux, jam drops, macarons, cupcakes, melting moments…the list goes on. 

 Whilst MM decided which pastries would be going home in a box, I focussed on the task at hand which was breakfast.

 The smoked ham and mushroom three-egg omelette with creamy mushroom sauce ($12.90) caught my attention.  The fluffy omelette enveloped a generous middle of fillings and whilst the creamy mushroom sauce wasn’t thick or heavy, it was a touch too rich for my liking.  The dish was cooked perfectly and took me back to a delicious afternoon spent in a true Swiss creperie with MM and my brothers after a hard day on the slopes. 

In less sentimental conditions, MM spent a brief amount of time devouring the Cream Big Breakfast Sandwich of two bacon rashers, sliced tomato, Ketchup and a fried egg on thick toast ($10.90).  I figure it’s hard to plate up a bad one of these (really, how hard can it be?) but according to MM, plenty of places get it wrong; but Cream Patisserie Boulangerie passed the test in a big way. 

Although seemingly full from his big sandwich, MM insisted we peruse the pastry cabinet a second time before paying the bill, just in case we needed a sugar hit on the way home.  In a show of unusual constraint, we walked away with the world’s biggest jam drop (sorry, no price on this one) and a couple of cappuccinos to wash it down with.  How we managed to walk away without one of these cupcakes is a mystery….


All pastries at Cream Patisserie Boulangerie are made onsite with a bucket load of love (and patience!).  Cream Patisserie Boulangerie is open 7 days for breakfast and lunch, Friday and Saturday for dinner.  You can even take savoury and pastry cooking classes!
