Original Tugun Bakery

Tugun

No foodie’s visit to Tugun is complete without a visit to the Original Tugun Bakery (EST. 1975) - a staple of local heritage, providing fresh baked breads and pastries for the past 44 years.  

Not only is this iconic bakery famous for serving up some of the best baked treats on the Gold Coast it also boasts to be home to the most interesting farm to palm coffee beans available from Fonzie Abbott roasters.  The friendly baristas are happy to chat and include some interesting alternatives in the coffee menu, such as the tasty and soul-warming pumpkin spiced latte.

Centrally located on Golden Four Drive, next door to another local icon Tugun Fruit and Flowers, the bakery has a small scattering of indoor and outdoor seating, and serves a steady stream of hungry visitors.  Every morning the skilled bakers tie up knot rolls, served fresh and fluffy alongside hot baguette rolls and their house-made local pies, including one of the most flavourful chilli pies you’ll ever eat.  Created by combining three of the world’s hottest chillies, garlic, tomato and spice with fresh beef, beans, capsicum and onions, it is guaranteed to knock your socks off.

Date scones are one of the bakery’s fastest sellers but get in quick or place an order as they only do a small batch every morning. You can also choose between delectable bread and butter puddings, coffee and chocolate brownies, jam drops and cherry ripes, rum balls and sweet fruit custard tarts – the selection is flan-tastic!  And if you haven’t had one of the glorious Afghan or salted caramel and chocolate cookies yet, it’s time you indulged.
