Newstead’s Chester Street Bakery & Bar has been transformed into a dessert lover’s haven with its new winter menu.

Candied bacon is the clear stand-out on Chester Street’s recently-introduced winter menu, where patrons can now indulge in dessert for dinner until midnight every day of the week.

Notable offerings include the melt-in-your-mouth chocolate fondant with ovaltine crunch, the strawberries and cream sundae serving and lemon curd crepes.

Owner Damian Griffiths and resident chef Jocelyn Hancock have opted to revamp classics for the late-night menu.

“We’ve seen a lot of love for Alfred & Constance’s late-night dessert bar and Alfredo’s late-night pizza, particularly during the week,” says Griffiths.

“We think the late-night dessert menu at Chester Street will be popular (too), particularly with movie and theatre goers who feel like a sugar hit at the end of the night.

“There’s really nowhere in the Newstead/New Farm area that offers quality desserts till late.”

Hancock has worked across the world in top restaurants, including as head pastry chef for Australian cooking doyenne, Stephanie Alexander.

“I recently travelled to London where the food game has changed so much; at the moment it’s a hub of exciting ideas that can be easily adapted for Australian tastes,” says Hancock.

“We’ve focussed on the fun aspect of modern day sweets. There’s something for everyone on the menu.

“We make everything on site including all the cakes, filling sauces and garnishes from scratch from quality ingredients.”
