Kudo: the gluten-free bakery that’s a true hidden treasure

Inside Kudo Bakery

Most bakeries can be found in plain sight, on a main road or with ample signage to let the masses know where to get their daily bread, but not so for new bakery Kudo.

The baby of ex-Sunda pastry chef Felix Goodwin and his wife Elena Nguyen, Kudo is hidden within the walls of the Heritage-listed Hotel Windsor. A tiny gluten-free bakery that’s in the process of gaining its coeliac certification, Kudo already has locals flocking to get their fix, stocking up on sourdough, baguettes, tarts, cookies, and canelés.

Accessible from the Hotel Windsor’s side entrance on Little Collins Street, Kudo will eventually stock whole cakes upon request as well as desirable grab-and-go patisserie items.

Kudo’s bread range is made with a custom flour blend for optimal consistency. According to Broadsheet, Nguyen is the brains behind the bakery’s seasonal creations, such as the mandarin, pineapple sage and apricot jam choux. The canelés are a Kudo staple, available in a variety of delicious flavours.

Nguyen and Goodwin also plan to introduce a range of takeaway toasties and sandwiches, as well as local delivery and wholesale.

Check out Kudo at 8 Little Collins St, Melbourne.
