Our Daily Bread

Blackbird Artisan Bakery is  one of Maitland’s most famous and iconic bakeries. Located in the Old Maitland Gaol, Blackbird Artisan Bakery and cafe fuses the quality of age-old traditional cooking methods with modern techniques.

The bakery produces some of the finest authentic artisan sourdough breads, French style pastries, cakes, muffins, tarts, quiches, lasagnes, preserves, terrines and cheeses. With exception of a few cheeses/ prosciutto/ jamon, all products are produced in store.

Owner, Carolyn Scott, is a master of culinary magic. Under her guidance the cafe serves up mouth-watering meals made from the freshest and finest ingredients. Carolyn’s love of food is evident in every bite.

At Blackbird, every meal starts with the raw ingredients and everything is prepared from scratch. Every Blackbird morsel is crafted with attention to detail and care. In a world of convenience, fast food and homogeneity, Blackbird stands out! Buying locally – as well as being citizens of the world – the bakery chooses the most beautiful free-range heritage animal breeds available. As a small maker they support other boutique food producers and, last but not least, Carolyn and her crew simply adore food and love being able to make your belly smile!
