Busy little bakery

I have wanted to stop in here for a long time and finally did today. The coffee was great. The cakes I ordered were delicious and just what I needed after hours of shopping. I bought some sour dough and can't wait to try it.

And everything they said was true! We just got a loaf of bread and some coffee and both where very good. Queue was out the door (the shop is very small), however service was very fast. We waited less than 5 minutes. I wish this was my local baker.

Love this bakery - everything is delicious and good quality. Favourites include the lamb and harissa sausage roll, potato bread, chocolate milk and beef pie. Marrickville outlet is our nearest and we visit frequently - it has managed to maintain its high standard of food and service despite getting much bigger and having numerous outlets. Great little place for a... More

I was only in Sydney for a week but must have eaten here 5 times!! Totally loved the breakfasts at the Potts Point branch - Bircher muesli to die for! And the coffee was excellent! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Just had a lamb sandwich and a ginger brûlée tart but WOW!! Would love to have had some baguettes, bread and croissants, but was about to hop on a plane home. Discovered too late, sadly. Will return next visit!

I bought a croissant and a raisin scroll at Bourke St Bakery, on Bourke St, Surry Hills. It was my first experience and had heard good things about them. The pastries that I was given were definitely yesterday's pastries but they would not admit it. I am French so I know what I am talking about. This place is over-priced... More

For me it is all about the pork and fennel sausage rolls, which are quality without being too rich. The four cheese and Womack turnover is another family favourite, main thing amazing moisture and freshness - you won't even feel what I se cheeses must be doing to your arteries!! The pistachio brûlée and rhubarb Danish are just perfect but... More

I even brought back a loaf of fruit sour dough from this bakery to my country :)). This place is a gem, long queue but fast. Coffee and fruit muesli, pastries are excellent too. Love the neighborhood. It's the perfect weekend breakfast place

This is a tiny place. The breads and pastries are spectacular. There are a few tables outside. There is always a very long line, especially on weekends. But, it is worth the wait.
