Throw out your diets and detoxes, and don’t even think about coming over to Bourke St Bakery if you’re not ready to indulge. I know Bourke St Bakery is not the newest spot on the block, but it ceases to amaze me how many people know little of it. So here’s my plug and photos of what I think is one of the most amazing bakeries around Sydney.
Don’t be alarmed as you walk down to see a snaking queue around the corner with hungry carb-goers trying to fit through the tiny entrance. Bourke St Bakery has plenty of savoury pastry delights from sausage rolls, meat pies to sugar heaven of tarts, tarts and more tarts!
There are so many things to choose from that you’ll be spoilt for choice, but I definitely love the piping hot pork & fennel sausage roll and the chocolate mousse tart with a hidden burst of raspberry tucked inside. The creme brulee tarts are also a hit with silky smooth custard topped with a crunchy, sugar topping. And if you’re sourhead, definitely go for a shot of the addictive yet sour lemon tarts.
They also bottle up some great chocolate milkshakes and juices, coffee and teas to wash down all the goodness.
Surry Hills is the hot favourite, but it’s now open in Alexandria, Marrackville and Potts Point with a lot more breathing space.
