While writing up this post, I read that Sugardough has had a change of ownership in the last few years. The quality of the food remains, though I think the place is slightly less crowded than it used to be. Which means now I can get a seat rather than go to another nearby cafe because the place is packed to the rafters. According to Let Me Feed You Melbourne, the former owners have opened a new bakery in Spotswood.
I should also mention that thee is a small space inside the door where you can select from an esoteric display of purchases such as jams and eggs. At this time of year there are also Christmas puddings on offer.
The attention to details in Sugardough creates an elegance that make you feel like sitting in a European arthouse movie. All the food is presented with style. The bakery looks warm and welcoming on a gloomy winter day when I drive past and see people queuing inside for bread. It is breezy and casual on a warm afternoon in the courtyard. I highly recommend the place.
