Whilst on our trip to Canberra, we stopped off to ‘Some Cafe’, who were using Three Mills bread. I tried the rye and it was amazing – soft inner with a crunchy crust and not as strong as the rye you normally have. My friend also really liked the white option, served with his Shakshuka. We met up with another friend in Canberra who had been to Rye cafe and tried some of the bread there too. All of these factors led to us searching for Three Mills Bakery and taking a trip to the bakery headquarters.
The bakery produces incredible sourdough, using traditional long ferment techniques, house-milled flour, and local ingredients. They also make sweet pastries, pies and sausage rolls as well as serving soup and coffee.
Named after their vision to work with three different grain suppliers, Three Mills has grown a lot since its 2013 owning and they sell wholesale to cafes and restaurants, grocery stores, as well as freshly made goods to the public and bake at home supplies.
I was in the carb version of phrase “kid in a candy store” here. Wafting with delicious smells of baked goods and a wall of bread to decide from! I settled on the dark rye, grain and a loaf of the apricot and raisin. The bread here is unreal! So flavoursome and light with a good crusty exterior. We liked that the bakery slices it for you too.
We didn’t leave without some pastries; a miso caramel tart (could be described as a Japanese version of a Portuguese tart), as well as a snail 🐌 croissant and a pecan pie. Kurt also rated his lamb and mustard pie as one of the best he’s ever had.
We highly recommend a trip here. If you’re from the nation’s capital, there’s free home delivery in ACT with orders over $40.
