Apollo Bay Bakery

Apollo Bay Bakery was packed like a Donald Trump protect.  It’s right on the Ocean Road and had a bunch of interesting pastries like donuts.

However, it’s known for its Scallop Pies.  I don’t get it like the English meat pies.  I guess it’s to each his or her own.  The place was packed when I arrived after having lunch at Scorched Grill.  However, the line moved really fast.  I think it had to do with them being very efficient at taking orders then kicking customers out the door.

They had a large looking glass case filled with sweets and everything carbs.  In addition, they offer gluten free pastries like muffins.  However, I was more concern with the looking glass could I wanted to put my dirty little fingers on each of the pastries.  I guess it’s a smart idea to have the pastries in the glass when customers like me come visit.

I needed some snacks as I was trekking down Great Ocean Road.  By trekking, I don’t mean backpacking.  I mean driving.  I decided to get the following items:

  1. Sprinkles Donut – It was topped with some sprinkles on top of the sugar coated glaze.  I don’t understand why only a portion of it had sprinkles.  The texture was really dense and it didn’t taste like it came right out of the oven.  It tasted like its been sitting on the counter for awhile then they decided to sell it to some poor wanker.

  2. Cinnamon Ginger Donut –  It had the same texture as the Sprinkle donuts and same damn taste.  The sugar coated donut had a sweet yet spicy taste to it.  It was a below par donut.  I’m not sure why they would even sell this customers.  It’s like selling cold french fries.  Seriously, I hate when I get cold fries.

  3. Macadamia Cookie – The cookie’s firmness killed the slightly sweet flavors and the macadamia’s earthy taste.  I’m a soft cookie type of person who likes cookies to melt in my mouth like a few tabs of acid at a rave.

  4. Croissant – I always tend to order a croissant for breakfast or a snack.  Apollo Bay Bakery’s croissant was chewy but it lacked all the characteristics of a great croissant.  The dough wasn’t soft and it wasn’t flaky; it was firm and chewy.  Croissants are one of my all time favorite pastries in the world and Apollo Bay Bakery totally struck out like a dude on the first date who keeps taking about his ex.

I can’t say I’m a fan of Apollo Bay’s pastries.  It all had the same firm texture; I found it annoying that I had to actually chew my food.  Unfortunately, it didn’t satisfy my sweet tooth like a good can of carbonated soda.  Overall, it’s a pretty cool bakery but I wasn’t too impressed with the pastries.
