Worth the wait

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... read more

Great meat pie. Good coffee. I felt lucky that I walked by while trying to get lost in Sydney. And the homemade sauce they pour on the pie was awesome. Next time in Sydney I will visit this place on purpose.

Visited with my 13 year old son on a recommendation from the tour guide at the opera house. This place is tiny, two small tables inside, maybe another 5 tables outside. You get in line, order, pay, and carry your food out on a tray or in a bag. He had a croissant, I had the ginger cream brûlée. Neither... More

A local institution - love the sausage rolls in particular. Great bakery and if you are into bakeries, its a Sydney institution!

Lovely meat pie and long black for breakfast. These folks know what they are doing. Nice hipster atmosphere. You might get caught in a long queue but they do move fast. I will be back.

Insane ques for such a small bakery but worth the wait these guys are brilliant bakers. Crisp crusts and tasty filings doughs with depth freshly baked and always running out so get there early and pig out on everything

I have been meaning to try bourke street bakery in forever, and finally strolled down this morning, I knew I was close before I arrived due to the delicious smell wafting down the street and the queue outside the bakery! I was overwhelmed at all the delicious choices, but decided to go for a beef, mushroom and red wine pie,... More

fab coffee, good eggs. tricky to find. google maps says it is on Macleay St but you've got to walk 30 steps down Challis St and then down some unprepossessing steps under a tower block to find it. worth it when you get there though!

This is a great bakery with a fantastic selection on croissants, cakes and wonderful breads. We had breakfast here for the first time and unfortunately we had a disappointed experience. Although staff were friendly both our breakfasts had over cooked poached eggs (hard), bacon was not crispy, no table service and both our coffees tasted bitter. In future I'll continue... More
