Sydney Dining Highlights

      Bourke St Bakery Hits The Mark

      Bourke St Bakery Lucy 

      Bourke St Bakery is an iconic bakery and cafe institution in Sydney with perennial queues out the door. Sydneysiders can't get enough of this fare, baked fresh and with captivating gourmet allure.

      As you can see from the photo above this place hums - with now several cafes in the stable across Sydney. Lucy and James visited during a conference held nearby - and would love this to be our daily staple.

      The Chocolate and rasberry muffins are outstanding, as are the toasted sandwiches which are massive. Namely Chicken, Pickled Celery, Emmental Cheese, Crispy Pancetta & Lemon Tarragon Mayo on White Sourdough... So goooood! Worth lining up for...

      And the humble Toasted Ham and cheese croissant is turned into something amazing...

      Says their website -

      "Paul Allam and David McGuinness began Bourke Street Bakery in the winter of 2004. Both were baker / chefs who shared a love of good food.
      Through the seasons 
Bourke Street Bakery has grown into a Sydney institution for people who have the same love affair. Bourke Street Bakery makes everything by hand with the best possible ingredients.
      A combination of great produce, artisanal skill and hard work creates the honest, soulful, delectable bites that Bourke Street Bakery has become famous for".

      Bourke St Bakery can be described as small and busy - more likely to get a table outside than inside. Or grab and go.

      Bourke St Bakery serves up pies with an extra dimension to the normal cuisine of most bakeries. How about Pork & Fennel Sausage Roll? Or Beef Brisket, Red Wine & Mushroom Pie?

      Bourke St Bakery also delivers on its fresh juices, the Iced Belgian chocolate and Lemonade... So refreshing...
