World’s best croissant in Melbourne!?


The flaky, buttery pastry you have for breakfast…or a snack, or any time you want because you’re an adult and no one can tell you what you can and cannot eat – 

is iconic to French baking culture. Think of France and you’ll think of wine, cheese, baguettes and, croissants. 

So when I found out Australia was home to the world’s best croissant…well I just had to try it. 

Lune Croissanterie

Lune Croissanterie Fitzroy Address: 119 Rose St, Fitzroy Melbourne VIC 3065

Lune Croissanterie CBD Address: Entrance on Russell Street at Flinders Lane, Shop 16/161 Collins St, Melbourne VIC 3000

That’s right. I woke up before dawn to take a plane from Sydney to Melbourne for a croissant. 

Maybe my priorities in life needs evaluating but it’s not the time for that right now. 

Its time to discover how Melbourne became home to the world’s best croissant!

I landed in Melbourne at around 9am and grabbed a bus to get into the city. The journey took about 30 minutes. I dropped my stuff at the hotel and jumped right back onto the streets of Melbourne for my croissant. 

Lune Croissanterie has 2 locations in Melbourne. I of course had to go to the original location at Fitzroy. (I mean if I’m going on a plane for this, I don’t mind leaving the city centre either) You can get to the Fitzroy location rather easily with a few tram rides. 

There was a long line when I got there. I expected nothing less. 

Which is why I had to buy a few things when it got to my turn. I couldn’t just buy one croissant and not try their other items. 

I got a Traditional French Croissant: ‘Traditional French croissant, prepared over 3 days’

an Almond Croissant: ‘The original Croissant aux Amandes, prepared with almond frangipane & garnished with a healthy amount of flaked almonds’

an Apple & Feijoa Crumble Cruffin: ‘Filled with an apple and feijoa compote and vanilla crème pâtissière, topped with streusel and double cream’ 

a soy coffee 

I won’t ruin the experience by describing each item here. (if you do want a run down then watch the video above) All I can say is, it deserves the title, and if you’re ever in Melbourne and have the time. Try it. 🙂
