Chu Bakery is arguably among the top bakeries in Perth, and it is also one of our favourites.
Strategically located opposite Hyde Park on William Street, the takeaway-only bakery spots long queues every day. It is not hard to understand why the locals love Chu Bakery so much—an array of croissants and bakes, good coffee, and breakfast takeouts.
The simple-looking bakery has a modern offering that keeps its regulars—residents and visitors to the parks—coming every day.
Step in and you will instantly feel the warmth of the bakery; very home-like, very comforting. The display of daily fresh bakes are visually arresting, to say the least. There are Asian nuances on the menu, as well as some French flair.
What you must try is its signature Chu Puff (A$6)—a choux pastry well made, topped with luscious and a surprise jelly in the middle. We liked the Lychee Raspberry Chu Puff so much. It was light and refreshing with a hint of tartness that went very easy on the palate.
They do a pretty mean Lemon Meringue Tart too! Buttery case with smooth, creamy lemon curd, topped with a slightly torched meringue that wasn’t overly sweet.
And if you are lucky, grab yourself a Kaya Coconut Croissant. That is one outstanding creation of Chu’s and something that everyone speaks well of!
