The iconic bakery started in 1984 when three French brothers decided to open a patisserie in Brisbane. More than a decade later, they sold the business to the Gravestein family, who owns and operates the bakery up to this day.

“The Toowong Patisserie has become a part of Brisbane folklore, even having been included in award-winning author Nick Earls’ 1997 novel, Zigzag Street. We are serving next-generation customers who come with tales of eating here or ordering their croquembouches decades ago with parents and grandparents,” shared the Gravesteins.

Now, the business continues to grow with another location at the Salt Village and the addition of a dinner menu on the Toowong site. They recently launched the Sunset Menu, allowing guests to delight in French tapas with a beer, bubbly, or wine and live sax music.
