Where To Find The Most Mouth-Watering Croissants In Perth

Freshly baked, world-class croissants right here in the West.

Zont's Bakehouse

Any decent home cook out there can probably manage a batch of muffins, or banana bread, but to make a buttery, crisp, flaky croissant by hand is a process that’s altogether more time consuming; with many involved steps and precision needed when it comes to temperature control, and high-quality butter required.

Which is why we’re lucky that we can hang up the apron, head to a bakery, and get our hands on some freshly baked, world-class croissants right here in Perth. Make sure you get to these places early in the morning - this eternally-popular crescent-shaped baked good tends to walk out the door quickly, fresh from the oven. Best paired with a delicious Perth coffee, of course!

What makes a good croissant? Look for one that stretches when you pull it, that’s got a crisp shell that flakes off to the touch, and insides that look like golden, fluffy clouds. The taste should be rich and buttery. Want to eat it like a true French person? Hold your croissant with one hand, and use the other hand to tear off a part and pop it straight into your mouth.

These are the best croissants in Perth, for mouth-watering treats your mind, body and soul will thank you for. 

Goods Bakery

Almond Croissant from Goods Bakery

This West Leederville bakery's dedication to handcrafting pastries results in croissants that are both visually stunning and irresistibly delicious. The double baked croissant soaked in vanilla syrup, filled with almond frangipane and topped with sliced almonds is beyond delicious. The effortlessly cool vibe of the bakery and the wafting aroma of freshly baked goods add to the overall experience

11 Oxford Close, West Leederville 

Teeter Bakery

Pain au Chocolat at Teeter Bakery 

Made with Hunted and Gathered 70% chocolate bars and Lescure lamination butter, the small batch pain au choc at Teeter is a must-try for croissant enthusiasts. You can get your hands on them at the pastry shop door on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings but get there early because these babies sell out fast.  

145a Claisebrook Road, Perth

Zont's Bakehouse

Any Croissant from Zonts Bakehouse

It’s hard to choose a best on field at Zonts, who have such a joyful selection of taste sensations and such croissant creativity on array, thanks to plenty of monthly specials. A spin of the wheel could land on a croissant filled with housemade Pandan kaya (coconut jam) and coconut filling topped with pandan biscuits and shredded coconut, or perhaps a chocolate custard filled croissant topped with dark chocolate and honeycomb shards. The best-seller, however, according to the Zonts crew, is the pistachio. They employ French-style artisan baking, but Zonts will definitely change your perception of a standard butter croissant -  they push croissants to the limit. 

228 James Street, Northbridge

Sugar & Nice

The Monthly Cruffin Special at Sugar & Nice 

This popular Inglewood bakery is dishing up some of the most delicious monthly cruffin specials. Although, Sugar & Nice do prefer to call them croissant pies; cruffin is a word requiring too much of an explanation. These weekend only treats rotate flavours monthly; you can even drop in a flavour request! Previous flavours have included strawberry and basil sherbet, birthday cake pudding, a jammy lamington version and lemon meringue pie, with pretzel butter and brown sugar meringue. Delicious!

Carina's Kitchen

Vegan Almond Croissant at Carina's Kitchen, Fremantle Farmers Market

Vegans should make a beeline to Carina’s weekly stall at the Growers Green markets in Fremantle on Saturdays - her vegan almond croissant is just impeccable. As is the rest of her range; all made with wholesome ingredients, and all natural (so no hypercolour dyes or fondants, just natural flower decorations!), with a fantastic selection of vegan, gluten free, egg free and dairy free baked goods available.

79 Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield

Harvest Boulangerie

Plain Croissant at Harvest Boulangerie Patisserie

Anyone who lives in the Doubleview or Scarborough area will point you straight to Harvest Boulangerie Patisserie for a pastry hit: it sits on the Brighton Road strip along with gourmet foodies’ haven, the Brighton Road Food Market (who, by the way, make an excellent coffee made from Margaret River Roasting Co beans, from their in-store cafe). Along with must-buys like the 100% organic flour sourdough with cranberries, sultanas and walnuts, and the tarte citron meringuée façon rustique, Harvest’s croissants are on a par with anything you’ll put in your mouth in France. The ham and cheese is the crowd favourite here, along with the classic plain. Be prepared to queue for your croissant on the weekend.

The Raspberry Almond Croissant at Chu Bakery

A spectacular hot pink raspberry dusting makes Chu Bakery’s almond croissant with raspberry compote a visually exciting offering; but we’re here to tell you it’s just as enjoyable to taste. An amazing hybrid of an oozy jam-doughnut style jam fills this almond croissant, with fabulous frangipane cream atop. They’ve been making this croissant since they opened their doors in 2016, and it continues to walk out the door by the trayful. Keep your eyes peeled for monthly, limited-time only croissant specials.

498 William Street, Highgate

Mary Street Bakery

Pain au Chocolat Croissant at Mary Street Bakery

Doughnuts are probably the first thing that come to mind at Perth’s OG bake lords Mary Street Bakery, but their choc croissant is pretty high up there and definitely worthy of inclusion on any best croissants round-up. Dunk it in your coffee and let that choc centre ooze its way into your heart.

Hazelnut Stuffed Croissant at Knead 

A small bakery doing big things, the family-operated Knead is a few doors down from Livid Skate Cafe, opposite the Scarborough Beach Pool and beach; an ideal location for a post-dip carb refuel. Knead are the kings of heavyweight sourdough and focaccia, so pop that in the brown bag, but definitely don’t overlook their sourdough croissants, and especially their hazelnut stuffed crescent of goodness. Check out this video of Knead’s owner rolling up the good stuff!

Maison St Honore East Perth

Traditional French Croissant at Maison St Honore

You might remember Maison St Honore from their time spruiking macarons at farmers markets; these days, they have some truly delightful bricks and mortar premises - a cafe/garden in Caversham, stores in Floreat, Mount Pleasant and Ellenbrook, as well as their own macaron factory in the Swan Valley.

But we’re not here to talk about macarons - Maison St Honore, being the traditional French bakers they are, have more than one trick up their sleeve - after the macaron, they totally nail a traditional croissant. Their pain au chocolat is also hard to go past.

Croff Bakehouse

Pandan Kaya Croissant at Croff Bakehouse

If you love to experiment with new flavour sensations, you’ll enjoy the beautifully presented Croff Bakehouse, whose pandan croissant (filled with pandan jam, coconut frangipane, coconut flakes, macaron) pulls together Asian flavour and French baking tradition in one contemporary croissant. We're also big fans of the Purple Raine - filled with a blueberry coulis and cream cheese custard - we're not the only one's obsessed!

In the kitchen is Singaporean self-taught baker Giselle Sim, who runs Croff with her husband Harold Bong, and loves croissants more than most things in the world. Her passion for this particular pastry is reflected instore, where croissants are near the sole pastry on offer; a speciality they don’t deviate from.

There’s meals to be made of the croissants here too, with dumpling croissants, cheeseburger croissants, even beef rendang croissants. Although if a ham-and-cheese croissant crossed with a ham-and-cheese toastie sounds like its up your alley, you need to grab their croissant loaf!
