A. Baker

Short for ACTION BAKER, the name of our restaurant was born from the historical term ‘baker’ given to bakeries throughout the Middle Ages.

Back then, these bakers or communal ovens were built in the centre of a community and the townsfolk would wander down with their dough to be baked off. Fast forward a few hundred years and A. BAKER is the heart of the NewActon Precinct. We’re a place filled with the buzz of an inner-city environment. You can join us seven days a week whether it’s for lovely daily baked artisan breads, contemporary dining in our regional produce restaurant, or an evening event among the trees in the NewActon courtyard. It’s a place for all people, all times.
