Yes, the bakery goods look great, and my muffin was fresh and tasty. My coffee though was not great. It came to me luke warm, and way too strong for my liking. It would be great if the seating outside had heaters or a cover, but I was lucky enough to secure one of the two tables inside. This place... More

This gem in Surry Hills is one of the icons of the Sydney food scene. It is bustling, busy and always good. I was there late morning so I missed some of the usual crowd. Coffee with a pear and rhubarb muffin was my order and was terrific. There was a smile from behind the counter when I ordered, a... More

We love sourdough bread and as far as we are concerned Bourke Street Bakery is THE standard ! The bread is cooked to perfection , and maybe because they have been going for years the starter is mature and brimming with flavour .Every time we come to Sydney this is a special trip before coming back to Melbourne. We stock... More

This isn't in the main city centre but it is well worth a visit if you are a coffee and pastry fan! We read a local recommendation and went to check it out. There are only two tables inside, a few more outside, the rest is standing room outside only. This did not stop people though, we visited on three... More

Some of the best croissants and chocolate croissants we've had outside of France. Buttery, flakey, delicious. VERY BUSY Saturday morning, still the queue moved fast-enough for us; we could have planned better. Staff was cheery, friendly, seemingly unhassled by the crowd. Cafe au lait and mocha were hot and tasty, on this very blustery, chilly Sydney morning, as we sipped... More

I understand the Bourke Street Bakery family was built on wonderful breads and bakery treats. . No question, they make great bread - my friend and I bought a sourdough loaf to try and it was the best. We decided to stay on for a sit down breakfast.My friend ordered the mushrooms with prosciutto, poached egg and sour dough toast,... More

This was my regular breakfast place during my stay in Sydney because it was nearby and convenient to where I was staying. Service was efficient and fast for my takeaways. I absolutely love their ginger creme brulee tarts. Seriously yummy! Their sandwiches are good. Pretty good coffee as well.

We were in Surry Hills and couldn't avoid this bakery after seeing the line up outside. The pies were the best I've ever had. Ever. In my life.
