The modern back-to-basics food movement is exemplified by locally made classic sourdough bread. In our ideal future we’ll all have beautiful local sourdough delivered to our homes each morning.

Long established among Fremantle’s best restaurants. Bread in Common’s wide footprint throughout Perth’s high quality retailers and cafes makes this one of Perth’s most accessible sources of incredible bread. Try the Ciabatta wherever you can find it.
It’s easy to attribute the long lines running out the door of Chu Bakery to their excellent pastries and filled sandwiches (such a tiny building doesn’t help!) but those who get in early enough are treated to a range of beautiful sourdough breads and the best baguettes in Perth.
Owner and head baker Andrew Ritchie followed the train line from Midland toward Perth looking for a turn of the century wood-fired oven, eventually finding a serviceable oven behind an alley off Maylands’ 8th avenue strip.
The resulting bread from The Woodfired Baker epitomises a living example the trend towards traditional and bespoke food.
North Street Store is a haven for great bread with the attention to detail and love which brought the store into the limelight.
New developments including the aptly named Little Loaf and Big Loaf bakeries mean their brilliant bread is more widely available than ever before.
We’d be remiss for omitting some of Perth’s best bread just because it comes not from a cutesy bakery but from a trendy wine bar on William street.
Wines of While squeeze a whole lot of quality into a very modest square meterage, a boast exemplified by their housemade bread.
