Penny for Pound Pastries!

We are always on the hunt for the tastiest treats and snacks to go with your fresh Padre Coffee, add to that our passion for supporting small and local business, and we are very excited to announce our new partnership with Penny for Pound Bakery.

Matilda and Ben are a husband-and-wife team operating out of a quiet side street off Bridge Rd, Richmond. They first opened their doors in 2018 and have grown rapidly in size and demand, employing around 30 dedicated pastry chefs, delivery drivers, and support staff. They have garnered rave reviews, been featured in the Age Good Food Guide, Epicure, Broadsheet, Urban List Melbourne, and Concrete Playground just to name a few. It also doesn’t hurt that their Donuts were voted best donuts in Melbourne at ‘Donutfest 2018’.

Delivering fresh to the Alleyway daily, you can choose from a selection of staple sweet treats like plain, almond or chocolate hazelnut croissants, escargots and yummy Portuguese tarts, or mix it up with the daily rotating cruffin or donut varieties. There’s always something new to try!

If that’s not enough we can also organise and supply their decadent cakes and gateaux to cater your next event: business meeting, conference, or party. With easy pick up on the day of your choosing right here in our Murrumbeena alleyway location.

Situated within the Versus HQ precinct in the heart of Murrumbeena, just a 5-minute drive from Chadstone Shopping Centre, stocking products from over 10 local makers and traders, The Alleyway Cartel has comfortable seated areas for you to dine in and enjoy your fresh Penny for Pound pastries and favourite Padre coffee in the sun, or undercover areas for those unexpected rainy Melbourne days.

We hope to see you down The Alleyway soon!
