Something sweet is in the air… A new cakery has opened in Freo, tucked down one of the city’s leafiest, loveliest laneways!

Aunty Lucy’s Cakery opened just a couple of weeks ago at the end of the charming Tum Tum Tree Lane, just off Freo’s High Street.

Tucked behind Manuka Woodfire Kitchen, the cakery is situated in the quirky, white-rendered space that once housed the iconic Juicy Beetroot – with a new technicolour cake-inspired floral mural (by Freo artist the Sumner Collective) at its rear that more than hints at the sweet treats inside.

So who is Aunty Lucy? The cakery is the brainchild of baker Lucy Cosgriff, who has earned legions of fans from her long-running stall at the Fremantle Farmers Market under the moniker The Well-Rested Baker.

Baking “since she was old enough to hold a wooden spoon”, Cosgriff’s offerings are inspired by a combination of nostalgic family recipes, her technical training at Melbourne’s William Angliss Institute and a stint at Montreal patisserie Olive Et Gourmando.

With that in mind, you can expect to find a welcoming array of towering sponges filled with lemon curd, roasted strawberries or pillowy whipped cream, comforting coconut choc-chip cookies, or enticingly golden-crusted cherry pies.

(If you’re worried about missing out, the cakery’s robust selection of classic rotations include a gluten free, dairy free and vegan options.)

Complete the tea party vibes with a splendid cuppa thanks to the delightful folks at Pure Tea – or sip on something a bit stronger from their sister roastery Karvan Coffee.
