Glebe Oh My Days Cafe started out in 2019 as an all-plant-based cafe, but rose to fame for its ability to make typically buttery pastries, like croissants and danishes, entirely vegan. Now it’s responding to that popularity by transforming into a 100% vegan pastry. It’s the start of a new chapter for the venue and its chef and owner David Rigby, who says the change in brunch and coffee service just made sense.
“We were primarily identified by our pastry offerings, so we decided to focus on what we do best. We wanted to take all that time and effort and use it to reinvent baking classics without animal products,” Rigby said. Large format.
Building on the bakery boom that has swept Sydney, the team aims to create baked goods that taste so good they will appeal to both vegans and non-vegans.
Large format access members get special tables at popular restaurants, tickets to exclusive events, and discounts on food, coffee, branded deals and more.
The result is impressive. Limited-edition creations like a baklava croissant dipped in rose syrup and filled with a spicy pistachio-hazelnut frangipane are causing a stir, as well as pistachio and white chocolate swirls, flavor-changing eclairs and an unmistakable “ham” croissant and cheese.
Menu constants include chocolate croissants, seasonal fruit danishes and almond croissants, as well as the classic vegan croissant that has made Oh My Days a hit among Sydney’s vegan community.
New product development is an important aspect of the business, and this goes hand in hand with Rigby’s focus on creating products with sustainability in mind.
“One of the first steps for this was to expand our organic offerings and move to biodegradable packaging,” says Rigby. “Our plain croissant is made from a combination of organic and vegan flour [shea] butter, which took more than eight months to develop.
