MELBOURNE | Wild Life Bakery is a bakery and cafe in Brunswick East from seasoned barista and self confessed bread lover Huw Murdoch. Murdoch was (and is) a huge fan of the bread at San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery and, after visiting the US and meeting with bakers like Richard Hart (Noma, Tartine) and Josey Baker (Josey Baker Bread, The Mill), he decided to open his own bakery.

The large warehouse on Albert Street ticks all of the expected Brunswick East boxes – converted warehouse, polished concrete, high ceilings, and exposed brick. The bakery occupies the back half of the venue, and large circular windows allow that those in the cafe section can see all the action going on.

The star is, of course, the bread. Murdoch and head baker Brad Tobin (ex Wood Frog Bakery) are experimenting with different Australian-grown heirloom wheat varietals to create some of the tastiest and most unique bread in Melbourne. Wild Life’s sourdough is fermented for 24 hours, with options like white, seeded, and fruit loaves on offer. There’s even an oat porridge load inspired by Tartine’s famous creation.

Bread is available to take away, along with croissants, cakes, and pastries – the raspberry and dark chocolate salted brownie is fantastic. If you want to dine in, there’s a small menu that highlights the bread. One of the most popular dishes is a delicious shaksuka (with optional feta and slow cooked lamb shoulder), as well as a fantastically well balanced bacon and egg brioche roll. The unique toasties are also worth checking out.

Market Lane beans are used for the coffee, which is available brewed using a variety of methods, while hot chocolate comes courtesy of Mörk. Assembly tea is also available, as is a small selection of local, natural, and experimental beer and wine.
