Bourke Street Bakery Sydney
We studied in Australia for a year (more than a decade ago) while Rachel stayed on for another year. We stayed in Wagga Wagga NSW for most of our time and travelled to Sydney whenever we were free.
After 10 years I revisited Sydney earlier this year. It was a very emotional trip for me, maybe I was being drama. During my stay there, I had a chance to try out one of the most popular bakeries in Sydney, the Bourke Street Bakery.
Bourke Street Bakery, check out the crowd.
I took a taxi from CBD to Bourke Street Bakery for brunch. Of course taxi was not an ideal choice but if I had the time, I will try to find my way there via public transport. The taxi fare was more than A$30 one way.

I was lucky as it was a popular bakery. The taxi dropped at the door step of the bakery. Like how I read from the reviews online, the bakery was packed with customers even in the morning.
I didn’t go for a spree as I was traveling alone. I bought a Chocolate Raspberry Tart for A$ 4.80, Crème Brule for A$ 5, Sausage Roll for A$4.5 and Latte for A$ 3.
The Chocolate Raspberry Tart.
It was not a great combination for brunch, trust me. The Chocolate Raspberry Tart was sinfully delicious. It has the soft bits on top that will stick to your lips when you indulged the tart.
The Bourke Street Bakery Creme Brule.
By the time I finished the Chocolate Raspberry Tart, the Crème Brule was the tough one. You can crack the topping of the Crème Brule and it was sumptuous. The infamous crème brule tasted up to its reputation.
My brunch in Sydney, a little bit too much for me.
To be frank, I couldn’t go on with the Sausage Roll and had to pack it. Having the first two was good enough for me.
Cafe latte from Bourke Street Bakery.
As Australia is always popular with its coffee, the latte didn’t disappoint me at all. I was enjoying my brunch and I did talk to some of the strangers around. Some of them were tourists like me while some of them were regular customers.
The menu for the day, check out the choices.
There were many other items available and I was spoilt by the choices. I wished to taste more of their creations but I had to visit other places for other reviews.
