Geelong’s favourite classic Aussie bakery on the block is Bread Brothers Baking Co, much-loved by locals and visitors since its opening in April last year – and are killing it. Located next to the former King Broccoli fruit and veg store on Shannon Ave, Bread Brothers is the one-stop shop for all things baked, home-made and bready!
The talented Bread Brothers trio come from a family who have been baking for generations (I’m talking 30 years or more) since their father John Casboult launched Westcoast Bakeries in 1985.
Brothers, Sam, Tom, and Nick are no strangers to baking – and are super good at it too if I might add. On top of running the Bread Brothers store in Manifold Heights, they also own and operate Highton Bakery, Pakington Bakery, Zen Café & Bakery, and Anglesea Bakery. These guys are well-known for their pies across the Geelong and have perfected their sourdough recipe over the span of a year prior to the bakery’s opening to get it just right. It’s safe to say they know their stuff!
Bread Brothers have your breakfast and lunchtime sorted, as the bakery-café caters for every mood, with everything, and yes, I mean EVERYTHING made in store. They have a large range of pies, sandwiches, rolls, toasties and focaccias, as well as salads, and Buddha Bowls. To top off the classic Aussie bakery experience, make sure to pair your meal with a coffee, juice or milkshake, and one of their homemade slices, donuts, biscuits, muffins or cakes.
There really is something for everyone!
Bread Brothers Baking Co is located at 153 Shannon Ave, Manifold Heights.
