Croff Bakery

Durian. Rendering of beef. Chicken rice with a Hainanese twist. Croff Bakery doesn’t make ordinary croissants. Instead, when it comes to creating the flavors for their crisp and flaky pastries, owners Giselle Sim and Harold Bong draw on their Asian heritage. The result is a specialized croissanterie with east and west highlights, as well as almond and pain au chocolat to satisfy purists.

Croff Bakery in Perth is a must-visit for quirky pastries that will knock your socks off. They’re serving a variety of flaky, buttery croissants stuffed with exotic flavors like jalapeno cheese, durian, char siew pork, and pandan coconut.

If those don’t pique your interest, try their lava salted egg croissant, which is oozing with gooey egg yolk and topped with salted egg and has completely changed the pastry game. For a match made in foodie heaven, finish with an activated charcoal latte or a turmeric latte.

Giselle Sim had time on her hands when she left her accounting job in Sydney to move to Perth to be with her now-husband, Harold Bong. She decided to focus on her long-time love: croissants, as a self-taught baker.

In January 2020, the couple opened Croff Bakery, a slick new croissanterie on Barrack Street, after months of home-based research and development. They bought used equipment and renovated the former Hot Star fried chicken joint themselves because they didn’t have a large budget.

Sim’s buttery, flaky pastry is up to par with the best in town, but it’s Croff’s sweet and savory fillings that set it apart.

Aside from the traditional almond and chocolate flavors, there are Asian flavors like pandan, beef rendang, and the Saturday-only durian, as well as versions inspired by Australian favorites like smashed avo. Crema, a local roaster, also provides coffee.


In addition to Lune’s glass-walled kitchen and minimalist industrial design, Croff’s neon signage was inspired by Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in San Francisco, which the couple visited on their honeymoon.

Sim, a Singaporean native, creates new flavors for monthly specials, such as a croissant stuffed with chicken, chili sauce, and a crisp arancini patty, which was a past take on Hainanese chicken rice. The “croissant loaf,” a ham-and-cheese croissant-sandwich hybrid, is also worth trying.
