Great bakery and cafe

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... read 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!

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
