Own a Banjo's Bakery Café

Join us & start baking things better!

Banjo’s was founded in Tasmania in 1984 and has operated successfully since, growing to over 47 stores across Australia. The idea, unique at that time, was to provide a place which offered customers the opportunity to sit down and enjoy freshly baked breads and cakes or handmade treats for breakfast, lunch or a snack with a perfectly made coffee.

The food still is hand crafted, fresh each day and served in an environment which provides a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We bake a superior loaf and our bread is still made the traditional way, preservative free, fresh, soft and delicious. From day one, customers were quick to respond to the Banjo’s experience – now, with more than 6.3 million customers visiting a Banjo’s store each year.
