This bakery has been on my list of to-dos for several months now. Located in the leafy streets of Surry Hills, Bourke Street Bakery is an icon in this part of town, if not in Sydney. This bakery’s shop front is not particularly large or noticeable, but what you will see are groups of people lined up outside, queuing for their piece of rich, buttery goodness.
We choose the Beef Brisket, Red Wine & Mushroom Pie ($5.30), the Pork & Fennel Sausage Roll ($4.50), Lamb, Almond & Harrisa Sausage Roll ($4.50), plus a Latte ($3.00). Was tempted by Rhubarb & Almond Tart, Lemon Curd Tart and Cookies that adorn the bakery windows but was able to resist J

I only tried the Pork and Fennel Sausage Roll. The pastry was flaky, and the meat was well seasoned. Slightly more fennel or herbs would have given it that kick to make it extra special. Both the Beef Brisket Pie and Lamb Sausage roll was also very well received, as was the coffee.
Given I only tasted the Pork Sausage roll, it probably didn’t give BBBakery the justice it deserves. I’ll give it another chance next time I’m in the area - maybe the cakes or the Lamb Sausage roll will win me over.
