Paul Allam and David McGuinness’s Surry Hills bakery is notorious for queues but fortunately there is now a third one in Marrickville where you can get your hands on the famous pork and fennel sausage rolls and crusty sourdough loaves without having to brave the hungry crowds.

Restaurants

Cornersmith

Cornersmith is creating quite a buzz, due in no small part to the beehives on the roof. Cornersmith maintains a staunch position on local, seasonal and ethical produce. They harvest their own honey, use free-range eggs, ham and salami and are closed on Mondays – for pickling.

The folks at Coffee Alchemy use a cold-filter drip method then put in a soda siphon to make it fizzy. That’s right: cold. Fizzy. Coffee!
