Bourke Street Bakery
The original Bourke Street Bakery, on the corner of Bourke Street and Devonshire in Surry Hills, may be dime-size, but it always attracts a devoted fan base. Perhaps it's the plump loaves of sourdough bread winking from the windows, or the array of delicious pastries, from rhubarb Danish to the mouthwatering ginger brûlée and lemon curd tarts. There are just a handful of seats in this tiny nook, but on sunny days it's hard to beat one of the tables outside on the pavement for people-watching. Bourke Street Bakery's popularity has led to spin-offs around town, including larger offshoots in Potts Point, Marrickville, Alexandria, and Barangaroo.
