Waiting in a line of 10 or so people before me before I was served would often shy people away, but oh no, not at Bourke Street Bakery. You have to wait to taste their beautifully prepared breads and pastries. My favourite bread is the Olive Oil loaf, what a beauty. Their muffins, particularly the mixed berry and chocolate muffin...

We've lived in the neighbourhood for many years and started going to Bourke Street Bakery when it opened. They have a good selection of sourdough breads and French style pastries, but unfortunately over time the standards have slipped and it has become over priced. To make matters worse, the croissants and other pastries are often stale because they are baked... More

This place is popular. So there is a queue. Big deal; it moves fast, the staff are amazingly efficient and friendly in spite of this. The food is a.m.a.z.i.n.g. We enjoyed crème brûlée tart, lemon tarte, rhubarb tart and an oats cookie (shared between a family of four and a great way to try a selection) and take away coffees... More

I sometimes think people queue for the sake of queuing. And there's always a queue outside the original Bourke Street Bakery in Surry Hills. So thank goodness they've opened other outlets around the Sydney metro. Not so good for the waistline. Their pastries are fantastic - the chocolate tart is a must. Try early in the mornings to avoid the... More

This is such a lovely little bakery, tucked away on a road just off crown street where most of the other cafes are in Surrey hills. I'm glad I had seen it on trip advisor otherwise I probably wouldn't ever have found it. We had a creme brûlée tart and a passion fruit tart, they were to die for. All... More

Great coffee, efficient and friendly staff ( who managed to pronounce my name correctly), nice ambience and tasty food. Enjoyed sourdough toast with ricotta and jam. Hubby had the ham and cheese croissant ( the ham was incredible). We both loved the danishes ( he had pear, I had rhubarb).A great sadness we don't live closer or this would be... More

We walked for 30 minutes to get to this place but it was worth it! It is small but there are a few tables outside so you can drink your coffee and relax while eating the most amazing sandwiches and pastries in Sydney! Worth going!
