Danny’s Bread

Danny Mikus has spent the last decade geeking out about the science behind great bread—and it shows. His honest, traditional techniques produce a deep rustic and slightly sour bread, with each loaf crafted by hand. A true supporter of local produce, the organic flour comes from Gunnedah and salt from the Murray River Basin. But bread’s not his only talent. Divinely decadent brownies, sourdough pizzas and sweet sticky buns are firm favourites with locals.

Editor’s pick from the menu: Traditional artisan sourdough
