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

A local friend pointed out this popular bakery and coffee shop w/ its long line of people waiting to get in the door. A few days later we walked over mid morning and found the line manageable, the coffee very good and the bakery items delicious. They offer a nice selection of pastries, breads and sandwiches as well as a... More

FYI - Lamb, Harissa & Almond Sausage Roll and Pear and Passionfruit Muffin. I also now have the Recipe Book! Friendly staff - nice and chatty and happy to wait... More

sadly the original iconic Bourke Street Bakery in Surry Hills has gone to rubbish. Coffees are extremely hit and miss, mostly crap. The other BSB cafes are much more reliable for some reason and it is those who will continue to receive my business!

Believe the hype, their pastries are amazing. Special mention of course goes to their ginger brulee tarts which are so good.

This bakery is ridiculously popular and can get very busy both on week days and especially on Saturdays. Known for signature items such as their pork sausage rolls, chorizo and sour cherry/chocolate cookies, everything here is baked on the 'dark side' - which is part of their cooking philosophy. As such pastries can be dry and appear overcooked. The bakery... More

We recommend this establishment to anyone. The breakfast was delicious, the breads in the window looked difficult to choose between and the take-out sausage roll made a more than adequate lunch. So sorry we are leaving tomorrow

This is a great little bakery. Grab one of their amazing sausage rolls and a brûlée tart for dessert. If you don't manage to nab a table out the front, head across the road to the little park and enjoy your treats on the grass in the sun.
