Bourke Street Bakery, Alexandria

Bourke Street Bakery, Alexandria

Aroma coffee. 474 Gardeners Rd, Alexandria. Trendy looking bakery – there’s one in Surry Hills that I’ve been to (but not reviewed, it seems) and it seems a couple of others. Their work is of a really high standard, too.

Desserts: – flourless chocolate cake, lemon meringue tart, chocolate mousse and raspberry tart.

There’s seating around the outside windows for eight to ten people, and a big communal table that seats probably 15 people in relative comfort. With their location, they’re doing a lot of takeaway lunches for people who work nearby – it’s not unusual to see people walk out with a dozen little paper bags of delicious treats.

My decaf was pleasant enough, though it’s hit and miss – another one I try is a little burnt. If you’re here, though, the reality is that you’re looking for good food, not good decaf.

  1. Ah memories, I was working in Bourke St when the original opened… the sourdough was the best I’ve ever had, which is a good marker for the quality of the bakery imo. It’s reviews like yours that really make me miss culinary sydney!
