Popular Queensland-based bakery, Rise Bakery, has recently opened the doors to its Portside Wharf store. This new location is the second store for the bakery and will offer a limited menu, with takeaway also available, ahead of its official opening in August when its full range will be available.
Since opening its first location at Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast, Rise Bakery has gone from strength to strength, something that French-born founders Adrien Marcinowski and Maxime Bournazel hope to bring to the latest store.
“Growing up in France, many cherished memories made during child and adulthood are created when visiting pâtisseries and boulangeries with loved ones. Through Rise Bakery, we wanted to recreate this experience, encompassing not just the flavours but also the entire sensory experience—from the beautifully designed space to the irresistible aroma of freshly baked goods,” Maxime said.
“Our Portside Wharf store menu will give people a taste of everyday French life with items made fresh daily, using recipes our team have learned while training back home in Europe.
“We look forward to introducing Brisbane customers to Rise Bakery and providing them with an authentic boulangerie and salon de thé experience at Portside Wharf.”
The new Rise Bakery location has been set up to evoke the charm of the bakeries and cafes located on the French riviera, which ties in with the experience of French culture that Adrien and Maxime are trying to foster through the business.
Rise Bakery joins a number of other boutique stores that are set up in the Portside Wharf precinct, which is currently undergoing a major redevelopment.
