Black Star Pastry
This Newtown patisserie has gained a cult following, and two additional locations, since opening in 2008. Owner Christopher Thé makes all his pastries by hand, using seasonal ingredients and no additives or dyes. There are savory offerings too, including a popular meat pie stuffed with slow-cooked lamb shank and red wine, but that’s not why you come here. People queue up for iconic desserts that are as beautiful as they are delicious. The strawberry-watermelon slice—two layers of almond dacquoise, rose-scented cream, watermelon, and strawberries topped with pistachio and rose petals—is an obvious best-seller, but the frangipane tart, filled with frangipane, seasonal plums, and apricots or pears, is a close second. There are even exquisite vegan cakes and cupcakes, so no one misses out.
