Whilst the bakery doesn’t serve coffee and offers limited seating, patrons find these inconveniences insignificant when compared to the quality of their pastries. The limited seating hardly dampens the enthusiasm of those seeking to enjoy their treats on the go.

Customers have showered this bakery with accolades, hailing their croissants as the “best in Brisbane” and even rivalling those from France. 

Beyond croissants, their repertoire includes an array of bread, fruit Danishes, eclairs, raspberry tarts, mille-feuille, and mini quiche lorraines.

Owner and baker Christian Jacques, hailing from Nîmes, France, draws inspiration from family heirloom recipes. His approach blends tradition with modern insights.

Operating from Wednesday to Sunday, with doors opening at 6:00 a.m. and closing at 1:00 p.m., this bakery caters to early risers. To secure your coveted croissant, arriving early, especially on weekends when they can sell out by 9:00 a.m. is advisable. For those seeking assurance, pre-ordering is a wise choice.

“We loved Christian Jacques Bakery. With such positive reviews, we knew we had to stop in for a visit. We took the Goat Cheese & Bacon croissant, the Ham & Cheese croissant, and the Apricot danish home with us to try. They were all well folded, buttery, and delicious. The prices were expected with such gourmet pastries. They are truly a bread and pastry shop. We will be back for more!”

The croissant tasted so good, so professional. I cant even describe it… I think this is the best croissant that i have tried so far! The price is starting from $9 aud-ish but its worth it! Must stop by and try!

Hands down best croissants and baguettes Brisbane can offer. My only remark is for the sweet pastries – they are too sweet. Let’s help Australia in its fight with diabetes and cut the amount of sugar you put in them. Other than that – magnifique.
