With Easter around the corner, hot cross buns are stepping up for their annual main character moment. These seasonal treats are the perfect combination of sweetness and spice, and their limited availability only makes them more delicious.

Whether you reach for a traditional bun, prefer them plain, or can’t go past the choc-chip variety, there’s nothing better than biting into a fresh hot cross bun topped with lashings of butter, at any time of day. 

Here are our picks of the best hot cross buns in Perth to enjoy this Easter.

Don’t panic, you can have a lie-down or a power walk around Hyde Park across the road after you’ve scoffed down of their delectable versions of this beloved Easter treat.

Soft, fluffy, spiced and fruity. Do yourself a favour and make a plan to indulge in these tasty morsels before Easter is over. They're available every day from 8:30am, in traditional fruit only.

Everyday Bread

Everyday Bread

The team at Willagee bakehouse gem, Everyday Bread, have blessed us with a hot cross bun that is well worth lining up for (and filling your freezer with). Championing the afternoon bread trade in Perth, the boys are about to set up another shop in Hamilton Hill in early April - so stay tuned!  The hot cross bun is double glazed and infused with cinnamon and oranges, and available now until Easter Sunday.

North Street Store

North Street Store (from Big Loaf Factory)

Any Cottesloe local worth their sourdough will tell you North Street Store has been dishing out the best cinnamon buns in town since their arrival in 2018. So no surprises that their freshly baked hot cross buns are amazing. They’ve perfected that classic hot cross bun spice blend, and packed each bun with Aussie fruit that’s soaked overnight in tea, for an extra hit of citrus flavour. Finished off with a brown sugar and vanilla glaze, the aroma alone will have you salivating until, well... next Easter! You can grab them individually or in a pack of six until Easter Monday.

Umberto's Bakehouse

Umberto’s Bakehouse  

If it’s authentic Italian-inspired baked goods you’re after, put this Gwelup bakery on your must-visit list. From classic vanilla slices to the most moreish continental rolls, Umberto’s are local heroes when it comes to fresh and delicious baked goods, all preservative-free and made with nothing but fresh, wholesome ingredients. And their hot cross buns deliver on the nostalgic flavours we all love; this year you’ll find traditional, choc and fruitless varieties on offer.

Miller & Baker

Miller + Baker

Miller + Baker are one of the few bakeries in Australia that mill their own flour, and it shows. Freshly milled, their nutrient dense WA wheat flour is used for baking the very next day. The result is impossibly fresh and delicious baked goods, of which their seasonal hot cross bun is no exception. Filled with dried fruit, in-house fresh candy peel, and a special sugary-spice mix, you won’t be cross about these buns.

Knead Bakery

Knead Bread & Coffee are the Scarborough go-to for sourdough perfection, and with a newly expanded bakery and storefront, this family-run bakery is dishing out hot cross buns with a difference. Head baker Robert Thomas came up with a recipe that brings back fond memories of his grandmother’s ‘lassie bread’; a long fermented sourdough densely filled with fruit and a complex spice mix, and sweetened with molasses. The buns are hand-scored with a cross and then brushed with golden syrup straight from the oven. Be quick because they’re usually gone by mid-morning.

The result is absolutely heavenly, and it's hard to resist tearing into one as soon as you can get your hands on it. The buns at Joe’s are available in traditional fruit or chocolate chip, and you can pre-order online for your Easter brunch.

Chez Jean Claude

Chez Jean Claude

A firm crowd-favourite for years, the hot cross bun from this French patisserie is sheer glossy goodness. The buns are baked to perfection, with a crisp outer crust and a soft, airy centre. The sugar glaze is second-to-none and the soft, fluffy texture soaks up all that butter you should definitely slather on top. These buns are so good, they'll make you want to renounce all forms of bread and only eat hot cross buns for the rest of your life.
