The Picnic Basket, Taroona

Another great little spot to stop at while touring the Channel Highway on a lazy Sunday.  For such a lovely suburb as Taroona, I am continuously surprised that there is very little there, given its demographic and size.  So when Picnic Basket opened, I was relieved to see this place had not been entirely abandoned. Picnic Basket is a quaint and trendy bakery offering a range of pies, artisan breads, slices, sweet treats and breakfast/lunch, including gluten free.  They also stock a modest range of locally produced goods and garden vegetables.  I know someone who sells their organic garlic there.  Its run by vibrant young people who offer great friendly service, and owned by experienced bakers who trained in Europe. Whether you're touring on your bike or driving through, try stopping at this suburban oasis for coffee and lunch. They are open every day and located at the old servo on the corner of Jenkins street on the Channel highway.
