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.

A very popular bakery (reminiscent of queues in good Parisian bakeries). Constant flow of people coming to get their fix. Too hot to eat at the outside tables so we took a seat on the benches in the shade across the street. Great quiet neighbourhood location. Excellent coffee! Tarts and pastries were a delight. Would love to have tried the... More

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!
