Where can one get the best strawberry croissant in West End? Your best bet could be the croissanterie/cafe on Montague Road, named Superthing, which started business in the midst of a lockdown in early 2020.
If you scroll through Superthing’s social media pages, you’re bound to see dozens of appetizing photos of their strawberry croissant, as shared by their customers. But whilst this pastry could be the store’s bestseller, the cafe has since updated and changed its menu since it began trading.
Eddy Tice and Ania Kutek, who have enticed Brisbane with their other shop, NYC Bagel Deli on Vulture Street, are also the pair behind this pink-themed cafe.
Superthing bakes fresh, buttery and flaky croissants and other pastries every day inside a temperature-controlled room that’s visible to the customers behind a quirky rainbow-hued glass. Ania leads the kitchen with head baker Jorja Kena.
The owners, naturally, had some concerns at the beginning of the operation due to the lockdown. Thankfully, their pastries and baked goods are perfect for takeaways, along with some buns and bagels, allowing them to continue trading until Brisbane was ready to open for dine-in customers.
So, whilst their baked treats and sandwiches are perfect for snacking, Superthing also offers a satisfying selection of breakfast and lunch with choices like pulled pork burger, chili chorizo frittatas and the Big Breakfast plate (eggs, bacon, sausage, hash cake, greens, cherry tomatoes and toasted sourdough).
Follow Superthing on Facebook for their trading hours or menu changes or to see what other tasty food you can get from the shop.
“Nice coffee and food. Had forest mushroom croissant (special), really enjoyed it. Will come back for more pastries too. Also like the shop inside, it’s a great idea to showcase how the bakers make croissants.”Evelyn Xu, Google Reviews
“Some of the yummiest pastries and bagels around Brisbane (if not THE yummiest). They change them up a bit as well so there is always something tempting and delicious to try. Their brisket cheeseburger is mouth-watering too. And great coffee! Yummo!!”Marina, Google Reviews
“Second visit in 4 days. I love almond croissants and these are easily the best. Took some “take-a-ways”, hope they make it home unlike some people I know eat them soon as back in the car. This place is good, seriously good.”Col Williamson, Facebook
