Rise Bakery is a chic, French-inspired patisserie cafe and champagne bar at Portside Wharf, Hamilton, offering a tantalising selection of freshly baked, sweet and savoury treats.
The stunning bakery cafe features glimmering chandeliers and marble counters with gleaming gold accents.
Glass display cases are filled with scrumptious pastries - flaky croissants, chausson aux pommes and pain au chocolate - plus an array of decadent desserts such as vanilla and chocolate eclairs, Paris Brest, vanilla slice and lemon meringue tarts.
Savoury lovers can choose from sausage rolls, mini quiches, and ham & cheese croissants. For something more substantial, there are French baguettes filled with smoked salmon, ham or chicken with fresh salad.
Everything is baked onsite daily using traditional French baking techniques. There is limited seating inside but takeaway is available with your treats packaged in pretty, little boxes.
Once the alfreso terrace is complete, customers will be able to sit outdoors and savour their dessert with an expertly-brewed Bear Bones coffee, Tavalon tea, or a glass of French wine or champagne.
Nice to know - Rise Bakery has another location at Sanctuary Cove, Gold Coast.
