our bread
As the name says, our bread only contains three ingredients – organic flour, purified water and sea salt. Our organic bread is authentic sourdough as we use a natural leaven. We don’t add baker’s yeast, or anything else you wouldn’t expect – we believe good bread should be made using the purest of ingredients.

We keep it traditional – our artisan bakers cut no corners when it comes to their method: Shaped and moulded by hand, our breads are left to rise for hours in willow baskets and baked to produce authentic European handcrafted sourdough.

in our cafe
We believe in using the best ingredients available to us – no shortcuts. We source products from suppliers that are like minded and respect their product and take pride in what they are doing. Where we can, we use local ingredients, and sometimes we are even lucky enough to be given home grown produce from customers, whether that be a laden apple tree or herb garden. We respect the seasons and what the farmer has in abundance, we turn into delicious jams and preserves.

Tribute – Two Mollymook Ocean Swim Legends

Mollymook Ocean Swimmers,Mollymook,beach,Swimmers,ocean

Jan and Pete Humphries


The two most consistent long distance ocean swimmers at Mollymook are Pete and Jan. Over the years they have been the backbone of the group, regularly holding BBQ’s and get togethers at their former Fairmont Ridge property, Jan the effervescent, happy, cheerful hostess with the casual nonchalant Pete always taking on the cooking duties.


Monday February 2, 2015 marks their 42nd wedding anniversary.

The beginning of their amazing journey

With Pete growing up in New Zealand, the young reporter inquired how did you both meet? Jan vividly recalls the occasion; “she was doing a tour of NZ. Having a drink one evening she noticed an unassuming but good looking young man. However more importantly, what caught my eye was a ‘random act of kindness’ that this young man extended to another patron. That ‘act of kindness’ led to us meeting and sharing a few words and agreeing to catch up the following day. It went from there and within 6 weeks we decided to marry and thus begin this incredible journey, sharing the remainder of our life together”.
