Agnes Bakery – Opening Soon
After winning the hearts of Brisbane residents with its lockdown-saving pastry pop-up, Agnes Bakery has finally found a permanent home. Owners Ty Simon, Ben Williamson and Frank Li have long been on the search for a long-term site for the woodfired bakery, finally securing the former Arc + Family space on the corner of James and Harcourt Streets in Fortitude Valley. During its initial pop-up at the Agnes restaurant site, the team worked out of the restaurant kitchen – the permanent site will feature a custom-built kitchen and woodfired oven specifically designed to perfect the mouth-watering baked goods Agnes Bakery is so loved for. In other words – expect that these treats will be better than ever. All of the pop-up favourites will be making a return, including a rotating selection of sourdough, kouign amann and pizzette, as well as additions such as cakes, choux pastries, tarts and sandwiches. Much like the pop-up, Agnes Bakery will feature a fully stocked larder brimming with goods such as cheese, house-made wood-smoked butter and relishes, salumi and even some items from the group’s restaurants. Agnes Bakery is due to open in August – we’ll have full details for you then.
