Bourke Street Bakery is a Sydney icon, serving up freshly baked pastries, breads and sweet treats, all made by hand the old fashioned way
Bourke Street Bakery hand make pastries, breads and sweet treats the old fashioned way.
Years ago a little, unassuming bakery opened on a corner in Bourke street, Surry Hills. Soon after they had queues out the door for their delicious handmade pastries, sweet treats and sourdough breads.
Since then these legends have opened a Barangaroo bakery, which takes the cake as one of the best places to eat in Barangaroo.
Made by hand, the old fashioned way
Paul Allam and David McGuiness are a couple chefs turned bakers who share a love of good food.
When they opened Bourke Street Bakery they promised to make everything by hand, with love and the best ingredients they could find.
That combo of old-school handmade, artisanal skill, great ingredients and serious coffee quickly made them a Sydney icon.
Sydney’s best bakery
Some have called Bourke Street Barangaroo’s best bakery and we’d agree. Locals love it for their impossibly delicious pain au chocolats, lemon curd tarts and daily artisan breads (their sourdough is no joke).
Their lunch items are also worth a stop, including a classic bacon and egg roll with freshly baked bread, a vege sandwich featuring eggplant and ricotta and a sultry beef brisket and red wine pie.
Our advice? Beat the queues and come early for a freshly baked pastry, a strong coffee and a little morning sunshine.
