Seating at Bruns Bakery

There’s plenty of seating indoors, around the window ledges, and over by the coffee bar.

Or you can take your goodies around towards the back door and eat in that green haven. 

Or head out the back to the grassed area between the bakery and the library. There’s a bench seat, or plenty of space for a picnic rug. 

Eat that cake, sip on that Barista-made coffee, and take in the surrounds of this modern bakery with legitimate old-school charm.

Who owns Bruns Bakery Brunswick Heads NSW?

Word on the street is that the Bruns Bakery is co-owned by the same people behind the famous and much-loved Suffolk Park Bakery, in partnership with a local Bruns couple, and that would be right.

No wonder the NEW & IMPROVED Bruns Bakery was a big hit from the start.

Brunswick Bakery Building

The Bruns Bakery is alive and well in the original building that has been around since 1950!

There’s an element of old-world elegance and retro charm at Brunswick Heads Bakery, and the building ambience plays a big part.
