The buns are back! Soft, fluffy, spiced and fruity, it would be rude not to indulge before the chocolate season is over. Whether you’re an absolute Easter enthusiast or a hot cross bun fanatic, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a round-up of the best hot cross buns in Perth, you can thank us later.

Crumbs Patisserie — Applecross

Nestled on Ardross Street in Applecross, Crumbs Patisserie is the latest venture for Perth-born pastry chef Julia Buri. The picture-perfect sweet and savoury pastries she whips up are better described as edible works of art. And it’s safe to say, her hot cross buns are no exception. With three flavours including traditional, caramilk, and Branston pickle and cheddar cheese, the hardest part will be deciding what to choose.

Chu Bakery — Highgate

There are about sixty thousand reasons to visit this Perth pitstop made famous by social media. Brought to life by self-taught bakers, Ryan and Seren Chu, and proven by the ever-present queues that twist down Highgate’s William Street, a drop in to Chu Bakery for coffee and pastries is a guaranteed way to start the day right. When it comes to hot cross buns, they’ve got it down pat. But who are we kidding, you can’t go wrong with anything at this neighbourhood joint.

Miller + Baker — Perth

Perth hard-hitter, Miller + Baker is home to some of the city’s most scrumptious hot cross buns. Their bakers have been perfecting the recipe for months with the ideal combination of spices, dried fruit, and an expertly piped cross. This year, they’re also packing these little goodies in gorgeous custom-made boxes — not a bad gift idea if you ask us!

Knead Bakery — Scarborough

If you’re in the market for sourdough hot cross buns, Scarborough’s Knead Bakery is the perfect place. After weeks of tweaking and trialling a new process, they’ve come up with soft, fluffy brioche-style sourdough hot cross buns. Even better, they’re vegan friendly.

Wild Bakery — South Fremantle

Add this South Fremantle sourdough hot-spot to your hit list, and you won’t be disappointed. Wild Bakery have well and truly honed the art with their traditional hot cross buns. But if dried fruit isn’t your thing, the team has followed through with the goods. In layman’s terms, think sweet and spiced plain buns, topped with pearl sugar. 

Teeter — Perth

We love what we’re seeing at Teeter — a mecca of pastry and cake. Think chewy and pillow-soft, with a crispy thin cross and fruits soaked in espresso. Add molten dark chocolate chips to the mix, as well as apricot and a sticky sweet glaze, and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re in heaven.

North Street Store — Cottesloe

This Cottesloe icon is famous for their lip-smacking cinnamon scrolls and have really outdone themselves this year with their killer hot cross buns. Made with Australian fruit and soaked in a secret spice blend, North Street Store’s generously-sized, pillow-soft bun is thoughtfully topped with a delightful vanilla glaze. Don’t let Easter pass you by!

Dunn and Walton — Doubleview

The buns at Dunn and Walton‘s are best enjoyed lightly toasted with a side of coffee. The organic wholefoods store and cafe are pumping out batches of the freshly baked things every day until Easter, so you have more than enough time to get your mitts on them. Made with premium bakers flour, fruit, spices, and coconut sugar, you’re in for a treat.

Strange Grains — Shenton Park

If you’re gluten free or vegan, Strange Grains ticks all the boxes. Located in Shenton Park, the dedicated gluten free and award-winning bakery is serving up traditional and vegan chocolate hot cross buns to ensure no one is left behind.

Mary Street Bakery — City Beach, West Leederville, Highgate

Like pretty much everything else in the cabinets at this cult favourite, it’s pretty hard to ignore the glistening trays of fruit-packed hot cross buns at Mary Street Bakery. Brimming with cinnamon, nutmeg and loads of dried fruit, you’d be forgiven for accidentally eating half before leaving the store. For something different, give their choc-orange variety a whirl. Drool.
