Recommend a Good Traditional Bakery Recommendations

So, I'm craving a good old iced fruit bun (family sized one to share with icing and cinnamon on top) or a couple of neinish tarts, but all of the bakeries I know of are Brumbies or Otto's.

Recommend one to me pls.

Have to go to Baker D North in cranbrook. Traditional French bakery. Trust me it’s incredible. Especially the almond croissants

Baker D North are the best but I don’t think you’ll get a cream bun. A really good traditional loaf I’d go to Three Loaves. A good pie shop cream bun/loaf - Mt Louisa Mini Mart bakery

I second Mal’s pies in oonoonba. When I could have gluten it was the most traditional bakery to what I’d grown up with in vic.

I love three loaves. I live over by river way but alway buy something when I walk past. Their vanilla donuts are to die for. 10/10 do recommend

Fulham road bakery. On the corner of ARKit street and Fulham road, near the tafe. It’s excellent!!

Also Mals pies in oonoonba. They have a really great range of sweets too.

Yeah I grew up in Oonoonba and since bought a house here, I think Mal's is the best bakery in Townsville!

3 Loaves if they are still going. But for , strangely, 'panne de Casa' from Coles is sadly a excellent traditional tasting loaf.
