So great for breakfast

I was only in Sydney for a week but must have eaten here 5 times!! Totally loved the breakfasts at the Potts Point branch - Bircher muesli to die for! And the coffee was excellent! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Just had a lamb sandwich and a ginger brûlée tart but WOW!! Would love to have had some baguettes, bread and croissants, but was about to hop on a plane home. Discovered too late, sadly. Will return next visit!

I bought a croissant and a raisin scroll at Bourke St Bakery, on Bourke St, Surry Hills. It was my first experience and had heard good things about them. The pastries that I was given were definitely yesterday's pastries but they would not admit it. I am French so I know what I am talking about. This place is over-priced... More

For me it is all about the pork and fennel sausage rolls, which are quality without being too rich. The four cheese and Womack turnover is another family favourite, main thing amazing moisture and freshness - you won't even feel what I se cheeses must be doing to your arteries!! The pistachio brûlée and rhubarb Danish are just perfect but... More

I even brought back a loaf of fruit sour dough from this bakery to my country :)). This place is a gem, long queue but fast. Coffee and fruit muesli, pastries are excellent too. Love the neighborhood. It's the perfect weekend breakfast place

This is a tiny place. The breads and pastries are spectacular. There are a few tables outside. There is always a very long line, especially on weekends. But, it is worth the wait.

It was recommended by a local friend. It is a small tiny shop located at the corner. There are only three small table in the store but many more seat outside the shop on the path. I have the 12 hour lamb, it was great!! Very sad that I didn't get to eat each of every kind of bread they... More

A very popular bakery (reminiscent of queues in good Parisian bakeries). Constant flow of people coming to get their fix. Too hot to eat at the outside tables so we took a seat on the benches in the shade across the street. Great quiet neighbourhood location. Excellent coffee! Tarts and pastries were a delight. Would love to have tried the... More

What a lovely bakery! Fantastic food, great guys behind the counter. I had a latte, ham & cheese croissant and a ginger brûlée tart. All were fresh and delicious, especially the tart. I was a bit hesitant as there were a lot of folks in line or milling around the tiny shop, but they were incredibly efficient and my breakfast... More

My wife had been here before many years ago and while spending the weekend in Sydney she felt she had to drag me across town to try it... I'm glad she did! The food looked amazing! If it wasn't for a dinner planned later that evening we would have ordered more but we settled on a lamb, almond and Harissa... More
