Bread + Butter: Amazing butter, great bread


Bread+Butter has continued to open during the lockdown for takeaway coffee and food items. This is a great place to pick up a snack and a very good coffee!

The following review was posted prior to the lockdown but we think it will give a feel for the place even though some of the services are not currently being offered.

Bread + Butter Overview

Bread + Butter is a wonderful café in Launceston, opened by Olivia and Rob from the Tasmanian Butter Company who make some of Australia’s best cultured butter.

Everything springs from the butter. We can do no better than to use their own words to describe how they make the butter which we regards as being an essential staple for our cooking.

Our small batch butter made using cultured cream. This is done slowly using traditional methods, then it’s churned, hand-worked and salted to perfection. This is our labour of love, our ode to the savoury, the creamy, the mighty goodness of butter.

All the pastries, including the croissants are made with Olivia’s own butter, we suspect a unique situation in Australia. It’s also a serious bakery.

At lunch have the house-made baguette with generous amounts of butter plus the day’s filling (the pickled carrots that were part of ours were especially good) or pieces of suitably dressed focaccia-like bread.

At breakfast as well as croissants, toast slices of sourdough bread at your table’s toaster, then swathe the toast, which was cooked to your preference, with Olivia’s butter and some very good jam.

And enjoy the luxury of fabric serviettes, an essential requirement when these is so much butter involved, which so easily could have been paper but aren’t. No wonder it’s so busy!!
