Black Star Pastry has opened its fourth branch in Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter, complete with two-level café and an open kitchen.
The 500-square-metre factory floor will house all of the cakery’s production, with high end tools such as an ultrasonic robot cake cutter and an egg splitting machine.
The upgraded infrastructure will enable the team to increase production and expand the menu to include a new range of savoury pies and other items. “Up until now if I wanted to do any creative work I’d have to get in at four in the morning and get out before the main guys turned up; it’s been very restrictive on our creativity,” said Christopher Thé, director at Black Star Pastry. “We have this back log of all these things we want to do.”
More new stuff are expected to arrive at this location soon, including a café menu consisting of salad bowls and bento boxes as well as dessert-wine matchings.
Black Star Pastry Moore Park opens every day at 210 Bent Street, the Entertainment Quarter.
