Gontran Cherrier

Gontran Cherrier

140-144 Smith St Collingwood, VIC 3066

When Australia’s first Gontran Cherrier boulangerie opened up in Melbourne, I was beyond excited. Named after the star Parisian baker, this venue combines the classic French patisserie with the much-loved Melbournian café to create a beautiful space perfect for brunch with a side of croissant.





Cape Grim steak bavette ($20) – pomme frites, young leaves & café de Paris butter

Excellently cooked medium-rare steak that was perfect by itself. I found the butter to be a little too heavy for my liking, but the salad provided a nice fresh element.

Salmon nicoise salad

Super fresh and light, with delish chunks of salmon and a perfectly soft-boiled egg on top.


Lemon and yuzu tart

Yuzu is not a commonly seen flavour and added a lovely extra touch to an otherwise classic lemon tart. I prefer more a more acidic lemon tang, which I was pleased to find in this tart, and the buttery pastry balanced it out perfectly.


Almond croissant

This seriously reminded me of the best almond croissant I’ve ever had, which was in Paris, at a random bakery I walked past while visiting the Louvre. Loads of beautiful, flaky layers and delicious frangipane in the middle – absolutely divine!

If you’re in Collingwood, a stop by Gontran Cherrier is a must, if only for a croissant and a cup of coffee!
