Specialising in exceptional desserts and pastries
With The Stick Pastry Kitchen we wanted to specialise in exceptional desserts and pastry, we wanted a space where we could have the flexibility to do new and exciting things.See our handpicked guides to the HunterValley
When we first met Jess and Phillip at their delightful little Lorn café, The Icky Sticky Patisserie,
it was love at first bite. Lorn was very quickly added to our list of regular suburbs to visit if for no other reason then to get our hands on some
of those ah-mazing croissants.
Whilst our fingers were crossed that Icky Sticky would open some extra doors a little closer to Newcastle, Jess does drop the hint that we're next on the list and who knows what they'll come up with!. Whilst we patiently wait we were just as happy to hear that Jess, Phillip and the team have opened a new patisserie right on our doorstep in the Hunter Valley.
Setting up within the beautiful Tulloch Wines cellar door, Jess chatted
to us saying,
‘With The Stick Pastry Kitchen we wanted to specialise in exceptional desserts and pastry, we wanted a space where we could have the flexibility to do new and exciting things.’
‘We're striving for a better product, we use single origin chocolates, and we allow the chefs more room to get creative, include more detail on the desserts
and just have a bit of fun with the menu.’
‘The Lorn shop is going really well, it’s been five years since we opened and we were considering opening another shop in Newcastle, we looked at a couple of locations but they fell through. It was around the same time that Tulloch’s approached us about a space within their cellar door, and it just happened to be the right time for us.’
So what can you expect on a visit to The Stick Pastry Kitchen?
‘We are a completely different offering to anything else in the area, that’s why we call ourselves a pastry kitchen, that’s what we are passionate about and want to focus on.’
For those who have experienced The Icky Sticky Patisserie expect all the same deliciousness along with a few savoury additions like the Smashed avo, Cornocopia
fried egg, dukkah, green leaves & Binnorie feta Croissants, and Quiche with seasonal side salads, as well as a whole lot more room.
The cafés spacious interior allows for a comfy dine-in option or take your goodies out onto the picnic table and soak up the sun and those Hunter Valley views.
