The quality of product at Matt Forbes' Yarraville cafe shouldn't come as a surprise. Having earned his chops at world-renowned restaurants like Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons, The Waterside Inn and Noma, Forbes' creations have been popping up at cafes such as Clement, Dukes Coffee Roasters, Twenty & Six and A Little Bird Told Me.

Cobb Lane Bakery showcases his selection of doughnuts, Danish pastries and bread baked on the premises, along with a brief breakfast menu with simple fare like salmon on rye and Scotch eggs with black pudding and rarebit. With his UK background so clearly on display, Forbes is obviously staying in touch with his roots - both in terms of his family and his cooking education - whilst moving forward at the same time.

Cobb Lane Bakery is now hiring. Find out more on Scout, Broadsheet's new employment website.
