Sydney - Bourke St Bakery

I went to Sydney for 4 days last week and I stayed at Mercure Hotel which was at a good location and reasonably priced. From Mercure, I could walk to Bourke St Bakery in about 20 minutes.

This is one of the BEST go places on my itinerary for Sydney. After some research, there were a lot of people on the internet which recommended Bourke St Bakery.

Started off with a morning walk with my friend, passed by really interesting houses and cafes in Surry hills. My friend and I were so excited when we reached Bourke St Bakery.

Raspberry, Marshmellow Chocolate tart - this was so good it was unbelievable!
The chocolate was very rich, and the combination of sweet dark chocolate with raspberry and marshmellow is too good to be true. you have to taste it to believe it!

My chocolate/hazelnut tart - heavenly! the tart was crumbly and light and the chocolate mousse like cream tasted just right, i love the chocolate bits sprinkled at the top. yummm!

They have a lot of pastries/patisseries/ fresh bread for sale. Within 10 minutes the place was crowded and we were lucky we could even get a seat! 

They sell homemade drinks. looks so interesting

The never-ending queue in the small but cosy bakery

Sitting by the roadside outside the bakery was a fun experience.  

The coffee was very good too and the food here is quite cheap. Highly recommended if you are in Sydney. We wanted to go back again but we did not have enough time, what a pity!

I really enjoyed dining in this bakery. Good for a quick breakfast and Surry Hills is a very interesting suburb
