Tasty and affordable

A wide selection of options (bread, pastries, breakfast items, coffee), delicious fare (tried the mixed berry muffin and ham, cheese and tomato croissant), good coffee, outdoor seating, fast and friendly serice, and low prices ($6 for croissant, $4 for muffin). No complaints! I'd eat here again.

It was a must visit, so we went for breakfast. It is very popular - had to wait for about 15min. There are enough tables to accommodate all the people there. Choice is good, and the coffee is good too. However, not my favourite of the area - prefer Breadfern.

We stopped into my wife's favorite spot in Sydney, me for the first time. Very nice.... I had a pie, yum. My wife was onto the sausage roll. We had a small pudding each that we share, get this.... 1. Passionfruit and white chocolate meringue tart. 2. Ginger creme Brulle. They were amazing.... Flavours, icky gooey-ness. Definitely a must do... More

Absolutely fabulous. The breads and pastries are to die for. The crossaints are wonderful wonderful and the coffee (latte) is good. The prices for their soughdough breads is very reasonable given the complexity of production. Cafe area small but patron turnover is only about 20 minutes from my observation. Parking is a problem as there is only street parking.

An easy place to grab some good food! The Bakery offers a quick service of bakery food such as croissants and good coffee. The Bakery itself is little and can seem a little crowded at times but over all it has a good atmosphere. It opens reasonable early and most food is on selection then. I would highly recommend it.

Our family and dog frequent the Marrickville cafe on weekend mornings as we can eat on the large bench tables outside and relax. There is a place to tie your dog and water if required. The bread and sweets are consistently of high quality, as are the coffee and juices. We haven't had quite the same consistency with the pies,... More

Went there to get some lunch on recommendation of the landlord. Was not disappointed. The chicken and sweet potato pie was scrumptious. Hubby had the beef pie and was very impressed. The baguette was a bit on the doughy side though. Overall we were happy with the service and the quality of food..

This is a VERY small place just a couple of tables inside, though there are quite a few tables outdoors.But this tiny Bakery certainly packs a punch.The quality of the bread and the very select pastries and cakes is really top class.

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
