From classic Kiwi favourites to fresh, modern ideas with a twist, the impressive range of scrumptious options at Le Bakermen Café and Bakery in Wigram makes it well worth a visit.
Creating familiar dishes with an added flair, owner Will Leung opened the vibrant eatery in March and describes his baking as ‘using French techniques for Japanese-style delicacies, with a Kiwi kick.’ One of the most popular current dishes is the Motherclucker – French toast with crispy fried chicken – followed by the Pulled Pork or Eggs and Spinach on Waffles.
Everything is made fresh onsite daily – apart from the famous Fairlie Pies, sitting alongside the café’s own stunning pie range. Will also bakes a selection of delicious breads, including sourdough, beautiful baguettes and bagels baked in honey. The amazing cheese scones made with buttermilk are a sell-out by 11am every day and the Havana coffee is expertly made by Vii, a former Ara barista tutor.
Sarah bakes the ‘sweets with a spin’ such as sponge cake with lemon curd instead of jam, or lollie cake with pineapple lump marshmallow – along with traditional favourites such as banana loaf. Doughnut Friday is also a sell-out, with funky flavours attracting customers from all over the city, such as cereal-infused malt custard doughnuts topped with crunchy caramelised cornflakes or roasted balsamic strawberry doughnuts, topped with dulce de leche.
A selection of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options are also available. The café is also dog-friendly and parking is plentiful. Follow Le Bakermen on Instagram and Facebook.
DNG Construction Ltd is going from strength to strength. With countless completed building projects around the city, the team behind this dedicated company can provide you with the experience, knowledge and commitment to ensure your building project, commercial or residential, becomes a reality.
LeBakermen Café and Bakery at 187 Wigram Road offers a strong example of the level of dedication the company applies to every project. “The owner originally just wanted some help framing partition walls and installing Gib board, but soon learned we could help with organising subcontractors, mechanical services, electricians, gasfitters, plumbers and painters etc,” owner Dean Inglis says.
“We ended up helping him through the whole project from start to finish, including all paperwork, applying for and obtaining Code Compliance from the council on the owner’s behalf.”
LeBakermen Café and Bakery owner William Leung was very impressed by the company’s dedication to the project. “DNG Construction LTD has been very accommodating from start to finish. They were always one call away and ready to help. One of our ovens had no water lines connected, but DNG had them installed and connected in two days,” he says.
From design, to construction, to the finish product, DNG Construction is with you every step of the way, with the capacity to handle larger commercial project, residential builds and smaller maintenance jobs, including skylight replacement and bathroom refurbishments.
