Découvrir: The taste of France

Découvrir: The Taste Of France

As you open the door to By Blackbird on King William Road, the sweet aroma of fresh, buttery, homemade pastry makes its way from the kitchen to instantly warm your inner-French soul.

Owner and patisserie extraordinaire, Chakey Kim, is a Melbourne-trained pastry chef, producing some of Adelaide’s best French pastries in town.

Expect sweet and savoury goods all baked by hand to traditional, time-honoured methods, melt-in-your-mouth flaky pastries and divine baked fruit tarts.

Barista Jin Lim is as considered with the coffee experience. The coffee is from Veneziano Coffee Roasters with the Bond Street seasonal blend served in the morning, and the great all-rounder, velvety smooth Estate blend served after 12 pm.

Adding to the French experience is a hot chocolate menu only a French inspired café could imagine, a range of loose-leaf teas from French gourmet tea company Mariage Frères, and a French toast dish made with hand-made-brioche served warm and topped with poached apples and maple syrup.

By Blackbird opens for breakfast and lunch six days a week from 8am–5pm and closes every Wednesday to nest. Find out more on their Facebook page or visit this delightful café at 3/44-46 King William Road, Goodwood.
