The newly-opened bakery getting stomachs rumbling

Kaylah Joelle Baker

Residents of Kensington can now appreciate a sweet aroma wafting through Stubbs St, thanks to the newly-opened Double Dutch Bakery.

The bakery is the result of a partnership between Melbourne roastery Rumble Coffee Roasters and head baker Jacob Dekker who honed his craft at the renowned establishments of Q Le Baker, Hazel, and Proserpina Bakehouse.

Since opening in early May, the community bakery and cafe has been keeping its new customers satisfied with good coffee, mouth-watering pastries and hearty sandwiches made with freshly-baked bread.

While keen on providing locals with a perfect pairing of coffee and treats, Double Dutch Bakery’s director and founder of Rumble Coffee Joe Molloy said the bakery was also focused on connecting with the community.

“Double Dutch Bakery is all about connecting with the local community and offering high-quality baked goods and coffee that bring people together,” Mr Molloy.


We want customers to enjoy the best of both words – specialty coffee, and artisanal baked goods. I’ve lived and worked in Kensington for ten years and saw a lack of delicious baked goods in the suburb.


Drop into the bakery from Monday to Friday, between 6.30am and 2pm, and try the favourites of the Speculaas Spiced Bun, and the locally inspired Reuben.

Double Dutch Bakery can be found at 61 Stubbs St in Kensington. •
