Supermarket bread is fine when you’re in a pinch. But there are dozens of places in Perth making quality sourdough and other varieties from scratch. As dedicated food editors, we’ve been lucky to try most of the loaves and other laminated pastries across Perth.

Here’s a curated list of our favourite spots, from Teeter’s knockout pastries to Bread in Common’s standout sourdough and Cafe Pastel’s Portuguese tarts – and plenty more where early mornings and hot ovens are a way of life.

  • This tiny bakery serves superb danishes, sausage rolls, sandwiches and cakes in a semi-industrial pocket of Perth. Plus, Basque cheesecake and one of the city’s finest croissants.

  • Bread in Common is so much more than a bakery. It’s also one of Perth’s finest eateries, celebrating seasonality and Western Australian ingredients.

  • This humble bakery proves that cakes and pies don’t need to be fancy to be delicious. The Basque cheesecake, for example, is completely bare. Here, you’ll also find elegant lemon meringue cake, hulking sausage rolls and comforting pies.

  • There are just two things to buy at this tiny bakery: coffee and picture-perfect Portuguese custard tarts, baked fresh every 15 minutes throughout the day.

  • A snug corner bakery serving French-style baked goods with an Asian twist. With Hyde Park across the road, it’s a no-brainer.

  • The sequel to Croff Bakery is all about the croissant loaf sandwich. Come here for a take on a Reuben and a four-cheese number, sandwiched between thick-cut slices of flaky, buttery croissant bread. Also on Barrack Street.

  • A suburban bakery making fast friends with outstanding baguettes, imaginative sourdoughs and community spirit.

  • A fourth-generation baker runs this petite spot, where sausage rolls and pies are made to 40-year-old family recipes. Plus, there are fluffy doughnuts, creative pastries and fudge slices.

  • This Bassendean expanded into the former Chinese restaurant next door in 2019, transforming the old cafe kitchen into a fully-fledged bakery operation turning out special occasion cakes, wholesale pastries and more.

  • Inside a former Brumby's store, this community bread shop brings outstanding sourdough, baked goods and filter coffee to the south-western suburbs.

  • This is one of the few Australian bakeries milling its own flour. Come for single-origin loaves, sweet pastries and vegemite scrolls, sandwiches, and coffee by Five senses.

  • The vast HQ for Perth’s most popular cafe and bakery, which now has many outposts across the city. Hit this spot for upmarket brunches, beautiful pastries and more. Also in multiple other locations.

  • A classic neighbourhood corner store with freshly baked bread and a Mediterranean-style menu. Also at Wards Central Dining, Little Loaf Bakery, and Big Loaf Factory Bakery.

  • A macaron and cake factory with a French-leaning brunch menu of crepes, croque madame and more. Hot tip: order the macaron ice-cream sandwich.

  • Classic cakes and sweet treats from a traditional, old-hand baker. The lunch menu consists of baguettes, frittatas and other baked savouries.

  • A NY-inspired bakery sweetening up the top end of Beaufort Street. Head inside and browse the retail section for accessories and homewares.

  • There aren’t many cafes that bake their own bread these days. For Tartine, it’s non-negotiable. Filled sourdough baguettes are the star attraction here.

  • Find Perth’s best traditional boiled bagels in a range of flavours, from onion, sesame and poppy seed, and sweet blueberry bagels. Plus a babka so delicious that there’s a waiting list.

  • A rustic bakery devoted to wild-fermented sourdough, with hard-to-find rye and 100 percent spelt versions among the many varieties on offer.

  • Get the three-cheese bourekas, cinnamon buns and a sourdough made with house-milled flour. And get here early. It’s all made by Mary Street Bakery’s former head baker.
