Baker D. Chirico sprung up last week opposite the Royal Botanical Gardens on Domain Road in South Yarra for a nice and lengthy pop-up of six to 12 months. In 2017, it’ll be developed into a permanent bakery.
The South Yarra site will feature all your favourite ready-made baked goods; from savoury pastries and crusty sourdoughs, to the light, sugar-dusted bomboloni.
Baker D. is as well known for its high-end interior design as it is its sourdough (see its Carlton store, built like the inside of a breadbasket). The new store, designed by founder Daniel Chirico’s partner, Allona Goren, features contemporary surrealist wallpaper art and packaging by local artist Misha Hollenbach.
While the space is yet to add a coffee machine and seating – which will come with the permanent venue – the pop-up has your summer picnic sorted. Grab your goods and enjoy a sweet and savoury summer by the gardens, courtesy of Baker D.
