Bourke St Bakery

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!

Raspberry Chocolate Mousse Tart

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.

Almond croissant

As simple as the exterior looks, I was taken by surprise when I stepped inside the cafe to see an endless ceiling, lavish grand staircase and amazing cake display. With my nose pressed up to the glass, I um’d and ah’d – being as indecisive with the range of cakes, pastries and baguettes presented in front of me. I finally choose a croissant with a cafe latte and must I say, what a great start to the morning. If only my body would forgive me to indulge myself with sugary treats every morning…
