We're often spoilt in Melbourne with artfully inventive breakfast options, which is what makes the modest, no-frills Sourdough Kitchen in Seddon, a pleasure. Sourdough Kitchen recognises that sometimes we just want keep things simple, with say a toasted scroll, sausage roll or indulgent buttery ham and cheese croissant.
Visually, the sparse walls and basic fit-out may lack imagination, yet this serves to reinforce that this is first and foremost a bakery. On hand to serve a closely supportive local community are a team of friendly staff with a well-stocked selection of sourdough breads and pastries. Pumpkin, multigrain, rye and olive are popular varieties for take-home loaves whilst plum jam doughnuts and their famed sourdough croissants keep your fingers rightfully sticky in store.
Having always enjoyed baking, owner and former chef Alex Rogers appears to have filled a noticeable gap in the steadily growing Victoria Street in Seddon. Whether you choose to eat breakfast there or fill brown paper bags with a few special home-time treats and run, Sourdough Kitchen will feed your craving for simpler and affordable indulgences.
