I was at the Marrickville branch of the Bourke Street bakery , where all the major baking goes on by the looks of it. Fantastic looking bread that costs over $6 a loaf , its rustic , its genuine and I love it even for the exorbitant price . I brought a gal pal with me for a pie and... More

Long waiting line as usual. Try going mid morning. The beef pie is a must try as well as ginger creme brûlée. Heck try everything! Sandwich is alright.

Join the queue and decide between sweet or savory. After munching on your food and drinking the coffee, line up again for bread to take home. We chose the Polenta Sour dough yummm

If you're staying in or near Surry Hills, it's likely that many locals will instruct you to try out the Bourke St Bakery. The selection of breads and pastries is impressive, fresh and delicious, and for possibly the first time ever, I enjoyed a coffee without noticing the absence of sugar. Space inside the café is scarce, therefore most people... More

I've visited the Alexandria branch of Bourke Street Bakery three times recently in February, 2014. It's interesting that I've driven past this branch countless times and almost always seen it full so it's nice to know that it's rated highly on Tripadvisor. I was only here for take-away coffee for the first two visits and found the coffee good. Service... More

This is one of my favourite spots in Sydney - fresh pastries, breads and other goodies are cooked daily. Coffee is brilliant, well priced and a great place to go for a Sunday morning nibble. Seats are hard to get outside, so get there as early as possible.

People complain and the queues and the (sometimes) brusque attitude of staff. But I think this place is outstanding for the quality of food and coffee. The bread is very special. It is the perfect place for an early breakfast especially if you like to sit back and read the papers. Sometime it's hard to get a seat but I... More

When I discovered this bakery, I stopped feeling so much homesick as I used to. The bread is so good that I savour its smell and it fills my lungs with the smell of my hometown, when I was a kid. And...beware, today most Italian bakeries do not actually bake their bread any more, it is all baked elsewhere and... More
