The bread is okay and some of their cakes but their pastries are lamentable to say the least. Dry tasteless croissants and pains aux chocolats, often burnt, okay coffee, but often overcrowded with tourists and wannabes who aren't looking for good quality food.

I'm glad we didn't go out of our way to come here. We were staying in Surry Hills and walked over for an early breakfast one weekday morning. There was a short queue that moved fast.

Walked past this bakery on the weekend and the line was up the street. Went back on a Monday and still had to wait. The coffee was smooth and strong, the creme brûlée ginger tart was magnificent. The bread variety was immense and variety of sandwich choices sounded delicious.

Having seen this bakery mentioned on a number of Sydney reviews, and seeing as we were staying in the area when on holiday, me and my boyfriend decided to visit. We were not disappointed and even returned the following day. Great coffee and definitely recommend the sausage rolls - especially the harissa lamb one- and their pastries. Would definitely go...

I went there with my friend for some light breakfast. We have ordered a chicken pie and lamb sausage pastry. Both are delicious!

You know when your on to a good thing when you see a cue snaking back along the street every time you pass a bakery door. I was blown away by the tarts, so much so we returned 3 times on our 4 days in Syd.

This is worth the hype! Basic but super friendly service, this quote from a customer while I was scoffing a perfect bacon and leek quiche in the corner; "the best coffee, the best croissant, by the best people, and I've been everywhere", sums it up! Come here when and if you can!

Amazing lamb roll. Got an eggplant one as well but had that after the lamb and it just couldn't compare. Gotta have it with the tomato sauce too.

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
