Queue out the door!

Constant queue, and it is no wonder why! Grab a table outside before you start to queue if you can, they go quickly! The food is fresh and delicious with fantastic flavours, it is not the cheapest bakery I have been to however the staff made up for it with their service. It is super busy but they... read more

They are like ninja bakers, you're in quicker than you'll think. The bread is beautifully prepared and baked to perfection. Id recommend something but the honest truth is, try one of everything!

Are you looking for the best bakery in Sydney?search no more! Been here a few times and I reckon it's just awesome. The selection of pastries and pies is impressive. My favourite is the rhubarb tart which is a little masterpiece. And coffee is great too!

I didn't think anywhere could compete with Harry's Café de Wheels on the pie front, but this place probably wins in the taste quality, if only to lose in the variety offered. We tried the beer, mash and cheese pie which was simply delectable. We will be returning.

I've never been past this tiny bakery without some form of queue outside the door. That said, I've never felt the wait was too long or not worthwhile - they have one of the most amazing assortments of pastries, pies and croissants.

We were in Sydney for about a week. We absolutely loved their Rhubarb & Almond Tarts, Ginger Brulee Tarts and the Lemon Curd Tarts. We liked the tarts so much that we went back to the bakery 3 times that week to get more!

Went there with a few friends and we ordered so many little treats! My favorite was the Ginger Brulee Tart... Beautiful taste of spicy ginger with a sweet caramel aftertaste. So good!

Went there in a early morning and wasn't sure what to order cuz too many choices! It's always busy there and I'd better to decide when the counter is ready to serve me. The guy, looks like manager, he is always friendly and happy to suggest what to order. Anyway, the food and coffee are always with consistent quality. Feel... More

OK, the queue is out the door, there's a wait for outdoor tables and if the weather's bad you'll just never bag one of the four or five seats inside. There's a reason for all this - great bread, great pastries, great pies and sausage rolls including the pork and fennel roll, delicious any time, irresistible on a cold winter's... More
