WATCH: Massive crowd lines up for pop-up bakery

Hungry Brisbane locals have braved long lines to get a taste of fresh baked goods on Friday, with queues at a pop up bakery spanning around an entire block.

Agnes Restaurant in Fortitude Valley took to social media on Thursday to announce the return of their popular pop-up bakery that serviced hungry locals throughout Queensland's lockdown last year.

"One day only! Agnes bakery is back on Good Friday from 7am until sold out at 22 Agnes Street in Fortitude Valley," they wrote on social media.

Images on social media show some eager Queenslanders have been in the line since 5am, two hours before the shop opened.

In social media posts, some fans contemplated camping out overnight to ensure they had the first bite of their favourite pastries.

"Better get there quick," one person wrote.

"Best believe I'll be there before the bakery opens," said another.

One person standing in line said they were "an hour early and still not early enough."

The wood-fire powered bakery is renowned for its wood-fired breads, doughnuts, pastries and pizzette.

Agnes' pop up bakery was created after owners Ben Williamson, Tyron Simon, Bianca Marchi and Frank Li set out to open a wood-fired restaurant last March, but lockdown forced its closure before it even opened.

The highly-anticipated Agnes Restaurant opened in August last year.
