You can find Dench breads in several of Melbourne's best restaurants, or just pop by their Fitzroy North cafe, Dench Bakers, for a scrumptious breakfast or lunch. This artisan bakery opened in 2005 with a focus on specialty sourdough breads, hand-made in a traditional European style and they continue to deliver amazing breads made with organic flour. Grab a fresh sandwich or go for a more substantial home-style hearty meal.

Tony Dench, Judy Newman and John Dench started this artisan bakery in 2005 with a focus on specialty sourdough breads, hand-made in a traditional European style. Four years on and Tony, Judy and John still take an active role in both the North Fitzroy cafe and the bakery headquarters at Abbottsford; but it is the cafe that has grown to become much more than just a point of sale for their delicious breads. The impressive morning menu spans and merges American, European and Continental traditional breakfasts to create a unique, mouth-watering list that includes Spanish eggs and ricotta hotcakes, eggs on ciabatta with chorizo, roasted peppers and potatoes. A stunning Bircher muesli can be enjoyed with fresh juice for the more health conscious, or try a selection of in-house croissants, bombolone and Danishes that perfectly match the Genovese coffee. Keep your eye on the specials board as it is often graced by dishes like the Moroccan breakfast with meatballs and eggs.

Be sure to grab some bread for the coming week on your way out. The kalamata olive and rosemary loaf is a fair standout among the savouries, while the raisin loaf with pureed orange and Australian sultanas and currants takes the proverbial cake for a sweet bread option.
