Lune Martin Place
We first shared news that Kate Reid’s internationally renowned Lune Croissanterie was coming to Sydney in 2020. An original site in Chippendale was scrapped, before Reid announced last year that Lune’s first Sydney store would open on Oxford Street in Darlinghurst. That opening is now slated for 2024.
It turns out a second spot will also open next year – a CBD location in the Martin Place Precinct.
“We had a second store in the works to open about six or seven months after the main production store in Darlinghurst,” Reid tells Broadsheet. “But because of the holdup with getting heritage approval on certain aspects of our design, [Darlinghurst was] delayed. But, by this time next year Sydney will have two Lunes not one.”
The Sydney set-up will mirror the model Lune has established in its stores in Melbourne (where the croissanterie began in Elwood in 2012) and Brisbane.
“We have our production stores, which are where all the raw pastry production happens,” says Reid. “It’s theatre – you go and watch the pastry chefs and get the really elaborate pastries that require a full kitchen team. But we also have our CBD satellite stores. The second store that will open in Sydney is the same – I think it’s going to be very busy.”
Lune is due to open in the Martin Place Precinct in early 2024.
