Members are in for a treat – the hoardings have come down, the fridges are stocked, and the kitchen stoves are fired up – Canterbury’s latest dining offering, the Bakehouse Café, is now open for business.

Patrons can choose from the Breakfast, All-Day and Supper menu depending on the time of the day – expect lots of freshly-made gourmet sandwiches like the Reuben Sandwich and Pulled Pork Sliders, meals like the Panko Fish Tacos and Tennessee Chicken Ribs, delicious hearty salads like the Wagyu Bresaola Salad and Pearl Couscous & Quinoa Salad, and breakfast items like the Bakehouse Big Breakfast or Sweet Corn Fritters.

For those with a sweet tooth craving, choose your own from a wide spread of cakes, muffins, slices, and tarts – all available at the café’s glass-contained cake servery section. To view the full menu, pop into the Bakehouse Café for yourself or visit

Coffee aficionados will be impressed with the range available at the Bakehouse Café, all prepared by our new Bakehouse Barista, Toli. He has been honing his skills making perfect cups of coffee for cafes in Wellington NZ, Brisbane and now in Sydney. According to Toli, the secret to making the perfect cuppa is to engage yourself in every coffee you make and be conscious of all the small details which end up making a huge difference. Cap, black, flat white, almond milk piccolo, hazelnut skinny macchiato, extra hot extra shot – Toli and his crew will be keeping customers well-caffeinated on a daily basis!

With café seating for approximately 210 diners when the al fresco area is open, and an extra 135 café lounge seats nearby, the café marks the completion of the first phase of Canterbury’s four year $120 million redevelopment.

“We are very proud of this new milestone for the Club – I invite everyone to visit Canterbury to see our newly-opened lounge areas as well as try out our
new Bakehouse Café. The fresh new menu has plenty to offer and the café surroundings are very relaxing to enjoy a meal with family and friends,” said Dave Brace, CEO of Canterbury League Club.
