If the hype is to be believed, it’s the pastry worth flying down to Melbourne for. Lune’s classic beurre croissants have popularly been dubbed “the finest you will find anywhere in the world” by The New York Times back in 2016. A tall claim, but not unfounded if the endless queues outside its three stores are to be believed. Now after much back and forth over the last two years, Kate Reid’s Melbourne establishment is finally coming to Sydney in not one but two locations. Lune Sydney will be located in Oxford Street, Darlinghurst and a second store will open in Martin Place, CBD.
The second Lune Sydney store is set to open at 1 Elizabeth Street, Martin Place as part of the new Sydney Metro Martin Place tower whereas the flagship store will be located at 60 Oxford Street.
At the moment Lune has a warehouse space in Fitzroy, a second store in Melbourne’s CBD and a store in Brisbane that debuted last year. And now Sydney is finally getting a taste of the action.
Along with Lune’s perfectly crisp, flaky and buttery croissants, Sydneysiders can look forward to incredible monthly specials. Past months have seen the likes of the Iced Vovo Cruffin and Carrot Cake Croissants. Personally, I’m a sucker for the traditional flaky croissant, which remains one of Lune’s most popular items on the menu.
The Martin Place store is expected to open in 2024. Although the dates and menus have not yet been confirmed for the Darlinghurst store, jump across to the Lune Croissanterie website for a peek at what to expect.
The wait has been long but it’s going to be worth it.
