The Pastry Lounge
Quality, Handmade Finger Food
for Caterers, Boardrooms, Event Venues & Restaurant Chefs
The Pastry Lounge is a large-volume supplier of wholesale, made-from-scratch finger foods. Their client list features hotels, hospitality chains, catering organisations and other bulk-purchase customers.
The company specialises in premium quality pastries made from fresh, real ingredients. Every item is a tasty finger food offering that will appeal to customers and guests of all tastes. Everything is made by hand in small batches and contains high quality ingredients. Real butter, eggs and fresh produce make the difference in taste. At The Pastry Lounge, everything is created onsite, where meats are roasted and braised, deeply-flavoured stocks are cooked, vegetables are prepped and the pastry is made from scratch. The HACCP certified commercial pastry kitchen boasts state-of-the-art equipment to ensure every item produced there is made to the same high standards.
The extensive range includes an assortment of certified gluten free products and vegan options. Selected gluten free products from The Pastry Lounge are endorsed by Coeliac Australia, recognition of their commitment to providing gluten free foods that comply with the Australian Food Standards Code.
The Pastry Lounge was established by ex-boardroom chef Fiona Richardson who, at the time, was running a small catering business. They know what works and what guests really appreciate. Since 2001, they’ve earned a reputation for quality, consistency and reliability among the chefs, caterers and major event organisers of Melbourne and deliver on time, every time.
