Bakery Roadside Stall + Sourdough Class Bruny Island

Average Reviews


The Bruny Baker is a cute little roadside stall on Bruny Island offering freshly baked sourdough for passers-by. Drop your cash in the honesty box, pick up a fresh loaf and enjoy a picnic breakfast on the beach.

All you need to do is find his honesty box on the corner of Sheepwash Road and Bruny Island Main Road. You can’t miss it – John fires his brick oven daily and stores all his bread in a couple of old fridges. You never really know what you’re going to get but generally there is a good selection of wood-fired sourdough breads. It’s an honesty system so have some coins handy and grab a loaf.
