Bourke Street Bakery, Surry Hills


This bakery in the trendy inner city suburb of Surry Hills is a personal favourite of mine. One only has to come here on a Saturday morning to witness its popularity. Co-owners Paul Allam & David McGuiness have even a published book to prove it.

There is always a queue of hungry patrons at the door, patiently waiting for decadent bakery goodness and caffeine fix. There's the couple with the dog. The mother with the two-year-old. And the guy from two blocks away.

For me, there is nothing more satisfying than sipping a cup of freshly brewed mocha here on a weekend morning. At one point I think I might have been addicted. Made with melted dark chocolate, Bourke Street Cafe’s mocha carries (at most times) a fine balance between the bitter tone of coffee and the subtle sweetness of the chocolate.

Mocha is best had with a lamb sausage roll or a croissant or a rhubarb tart or a pear and almond tart. Or all of the above, while watching the world go by.

Love the compositions of your photos, well done!

I thought I'd missed a great food blog but it appears you've only been up and running for a week or two.

Welcome to the community!
