As Creswick's community continues to grow, its businesses are growing with it.
For the last eight years, Le Péché Gourmand has built a sizeable following on Albert Street, selling its fine French breads, pastries, and treats to locals and visitors.
But when an opportunity arose to move into the much larger shop next door, owners Paul and Marie Williams jumped at the chance.
The much larger kitchen is formidable, able to keep up with the rising demand, and there's more space inside for customers as well.
A neat touch is the coffee machine built into the bench.
Ms Williams said their intention was always to stay in Creswick.
"It's been a long, long process, we've been needing a bigger kitchen for quite a while," she said.
"It's getting busier, there's a lot happening in Creswick - this (location) came across, and we just went for it and since it was next door to us, it made it easy."
The extra space will come in handy, as the town attracts more people from further afield.
Ms Williams said the town was in an interesting stage of development, which was exciting as a business owner.
"Creswick's been booming in the last 18 months or so, and we can see it keeping on growing," she said.
"The mountain bike park's coming, all the trails, the RACV has brought a huge increase of tourists staying in Creswick, so we now need a little bit more - probably retail shops, a variety of shops opening to keep people in town for the whole weekend rather than just coming for an hour and then disappearing.
"It's coming to that, it's slowly getting there."
Mr Williams agreed, noting there were opportunities for jobs.
"We need something else, some sort of diversity, because it's all well and good getting people to come to town but we need them to stick around a bit more."
However, both noted the small-town feel, and tight community, was important to retain.
The traditional menu at the patisserie will remain the same in the new shop.
"People have their favourites, I've tried to do special things, and people always stick to the classics, they just love it," he said.
"We won't stray away from what we do best."
The new shop opens Wednesday.
