The queue often stretches around the corner, and there’s only room for a few gluteus maximi at the window tables, but hell, it’s worth it. Bourke Street Bakery deftly blends insane amounts of flour, butter, egg yolks and icing sugar for the best pain au chocolat and pastry snails in the city. The Aroma beans make for supreme coffee too. When the sun’s shining, there’s nothing better than snagging a couple of pork and fennel or lamb and harissa sausage rolls, a loaf of sourdough, a tray of assorted sweetcakes (we love the sugar scrolls and the teeny ginger brulee tarts) and cutting through the rustic back alleys of Surry Hills for a lawn brekkie at Moore Park.
