Bun Appétit! Here’s Where To Find The Best Hot Cross Buns In Brisbane

Warning: may cause cravings

By Teagan Witherow | 20th March 2024

Easter is quite literally just around the corner and, if you’ve yet to sink your teeth into an irresistibly tasty hot cross bun, it’s high time to join the party with the very best hot cross buns Brisbane bakeries have to offer. 

The sweet scent of freshly baked hot cross buns is drifting out of bakeries all over Brisbane, tempting us and making those extra calories seem totally justified. After all, it’s practically a seasonal requirement, right? 

So, whether you’re a stickler for traditional buns, prefer the fruitless variety (no judgment here), or can’t resist a decadent chocolate-filled bun, we’ve created a list of the hottest spots to score the best hot cross buns in town. Thank us later.

By the way, we consider everyone in this list the best of the best! To make finding your next favourite that much easier, we’ve ordered the list alphabetically by suburb and also have filtering tabs for your convenience. Did we miss someone from the list? Let us know here!   Hide the form

Agnes Bakery 

It’s no surprise that Agnes Bakery has found itself on this list thanks to their delectable sourdough hot cross buns. Balancing the sweetness of raisins with the tang of sourdough, these buns are baked to perfection in a woodfire oven and served fresh every day. Be sure to pick up some of their house-cultured and churned smoked butter to lather on for an extra touch of flavour.

Darvella Patisserie 

Making our mouths water since 2020, Darvella Patisserie is another local fave delivering Easter goods. Their traditional hot cross buns are available both in-store and online every day leading up to the Easter weekend and if you’re in the mood for a weekend treat, don’t miss out on their double chocolate and Biscoff flavours.

Jocelyn’s Provisions 

At Jocelyn’s Provisions, you’ll find hot cross buns filled with spiced crème patisserie or milk chocolate ganache. These mouth-watering creations are available in-store every Thursday to Saturday leading up to Easter, but trust us, you’ll want to get in early before they sell out.

Lune Croissanterie 

Let’s take a moment of appreciation for Lune Croissanterie because they’re blessing us with hot cross cruffins this year. Offering the best of both worlds – a flaky, buttery cruffin filled with the flavours of a hot cross bun, it’s a match made in pastry heaven.

Nodo Donuts

Also taking a non-traditional approach, Nodo Donuts, is serving up hot cross donuts. But fear not traditionalists – they’re also dishing out the tried-and-true sourdough hot cross buns for those craving a more traditional treat. We’ll take one of each, please.
