Kenny Hills Bakers
Flaky, warm croissants, soft chewy ciabatta and rye bread are just a few things one can expect at this charming bakery in Kenny Hills. And if you prefer something that's not run-of-the-mill, there are always sweet or savoury pies and other items on the menu to tickle the tastebuds - popular choices are their beef and portobello mushroom pie, pecan pie, lemon meringue tart and breakfast-type selections like baked eggs. If it's a healthier option you're after, chia puddings are also available here.
