Our Story

The Bakery Alice Springs was established in September 2014 by amateur bakers Neil Rilatt and Caleb Evans. Neil now runs The Bakery with his wife, Mel. 


With no formal training, Neil is entirely self-taught in the art of bread making, vienoisserie and patisserie. 
 
Here at The Bakery we pride ourselves on baking the highest quality produce with the highest quality ingredients. Flour is sourced from The Wholegrain Milling Company and is 100% certified organic.  We buy Australian produce to support Aussie farmers and keep our food miles down, and we buy from local suppliers wherever possible to support local business as we have been supported ourselves. 

We now have a wide and ever-expanding repertoire of products including a variety of sourdoughs, artisan breads, doughnuts, french vienoisserie, gourmet pies and sausage rolls.
