Bertallis Bakery, Benalla
Bertallis Bakery on Bridge Street delivers tasty pastries, cakes, breads, pies, sausage rolls, sandwiches and bread rolls from their Bridge Street cafe & bakery. Bertallis also operate the Alpine Breads range of breads.
Alpine Breads has four generations of baking history dating back to the 1930’S. These were the days when Grandad (Richard Bertalli) had to split the wood to fire the scotch ovens to be able to bake his breads. These were also the days when there were no commercial yeasts available and Dick would have to make his sour dough cultures to be able to leaven his breads.
Even today we still use these practices that have been passed down from generation to generation. This is a 36-hour fermentation process that gives the bread produced by Alpine Breads its unique flavour.
If that wasn't enough Bertallis also serve up great coffee! Sit inside or out in this familiar bakery on Benalla's main thoroughfare.
