Since opening its Five Dock bakery in 2019, Buttercrumbs’ Croissant has gained a cult following. On weekends, there are lines out the door from early in the morning, with croissants and other treats often selling out quickly.

To keep up with the demand for its buttery, light and flaky pastries, Buttercrumbs opened a second bakery in Ultimo, right across from Broadway shopping centre. The space is bigger than the one at Five Dock, with seats for up to 20 people and a large window into the open kitchen so people can watch their croissants being rolled out by co-owner (and head baker) Youna Choi and her team throughout the day.

Whether you visit Five Dock or Ultimo, the core croissant range features plain, almond, pain au chocolat, and strawberry and Nutella. There are also “buttercubes”: cube-shaped croissants with sweet fillings such as vanilla, matcha and pistachio, as well as savoury ones, including garlic, and ham and cheese. Monthly specials also punctuate the menu. Served alongside these baked goodies is coffee by Pablo & Rusty, plus a range of milkshakes, iced tea and smoothies.
