Double Dutch Bakery, Kensington

MELBOURNE | Double Dutch Bakery opened in Kensington last year, a collaboration between nearby Rumble Coffee Roasters and baker Jacob Dekker. I paid them a visit to grab some photos for What’s On Melbourne, and to find out more.

Rumble Coffee founder Joe Molloy, who has lived in the area for over a decade, always bemoaned the lack of a quality neighbourhood bakery. Baker Jacob Dekker, meanwhile honed his craft at places like the original Zumbo Cafe in South Yarra, Q Le Baker, Hazel, and Proserpina Bakehouse. When the duo got together, it was clear that opening a venue in Kensington was the next move, and so Double Dutch was born.

It’s a bright space, filled with natural light, dominated by the coffee counter which extends to the long display cabinet that’s filled with Jacob’s artisanal baked goods. The plan was to create space that catered to the local community, and it’s clear that that’s been achieved. While I was there, a constant stream of customers from all walks of life were popping in, many of which the staff knew by name, and were having chats with.

In the cabinets, you’ll find freshly baked loaves of sourdough, sandwiches, and pastries. Behind the cabinet, there’s a little warmer filled with sausage rolls and pies. The menu rotates regularly, but there are certain customer favourites that are always on there. On any given day, you might expect to see things like brioche Speculaas buns, bacon and egg muffins, croissants, and Rueben baguettes.

The ethical sourcing partnerships that Rumble has become known for, is mirrored at Double Dutch Bakery. Produce is sourced locally, and is of the highest quality. Corned beef is from Mathews Artisan Butchers, Gruyere cheese from Savour and Grace, and chocolate from Hunted + Gathered.

The coffee side of things, is unsurprisingly excellent. You’ll find Rumble’s full range of beans to purchase for home, along with coffee brewing equipment. Several of the beans are available to choose from at the coffee counter, brewed almost any filter or espresso method that you can think of. There’s cow’s milk, along with a full selection of alternative milks.
