Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie, Camberwell by Obelix

Laurent is an institute at the crossroads of trams known fondly by locals as "The Junction".  It's well situated on Burke Rd, Camberwell surrounded by a plethora of shops with parking at the rear which makes it quite a handy little spot to have a quick lunch or to pop in and be tempted by the delectable looking pastries.

Laurent Bakery certainly does knock up a good crusty baguette and some amazing looking cakes.

On this occasion, I ordered the pulled pork and coleslaw roll with relish and a cup of tea to wash it down with.  The bread roll was to the standard one expects from a French bakery, crusty yet slightly dense in the middle without being too stodgy.

The pulled pork was flavoursome with plenty of slaw to cut through the richness.

A nice cuppa to go with my roll.

Verdict: we liked it.

My only bone of contention with this place is that it charges a surcharge (of a couple of dollars extra) to dine in. My pulled pork roll and English Breakfast tea set me back $16.50.  The service was relatively quick given I was there during the lunchtime peak.  It was quite lovely sitting in the al fresco area which in fact is part of an arcade and watch the world go by.
