History and charm
The Dunkeld Old Bakery began operating in 1887 in a tiny cottage in a quiet backstreet. The menu is inspired by the history of the place, including the wood fired oven - one of only a handful left operational in the state. We bake all of our artisan bread, cakes, pastries, muffins and tarts in the 1800s bakehouse.
In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Dunkeld Old Bakery will start a doorstep delivery service on Wednesday 25 March. Deliveries are available for Glenthompson and Dunkeld residents only and available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Regretfully, we have closed the shop to foot traffic, a move we hope will help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus in our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
At the Old Dunkeld Bakery, our passion is delivering rustic, authentic food that takes full advantage of the historic wood fired oven.
The menu offers everything you would expect at a bakery, with a few French influences. Classic pies, sausage rolls and quiches sit alongside hearty soups and delectable cakes.
The perfect spot for weekend brunch, the intimate cafe is bathed in morning sun while boasting a wood heater for rainy days.
The Dunkeld Old Bakery provides guest house accommodation within easy walking distance of the town centre, with views to the spectacular Southern Grampians. High ceilings and spacious bedroom suites provide a character filled country escape. Better still, you can wake to the smell of freshly baked bread and exceptionally good coffee.
