Queues consistently spill out onto the footpath at this little corner shop. A rusted metalwork sign above the tiny bakery café, situated on the leafy Bourke Street Surry Hills, reads ‘Boulangerie’. The creme brulee tarts are locally famous, and we're here all the time for a loaf of sourdough (plain, seeded, hazelnut and raisin, fig and cranberry or potato and rosemary). Nab a corner booth seat if you can.
Located in the hip neighborhood of Surrey Hills, Bourke Street Bakery has the best baked goods and coffee. Packed at 2:00 p.m. on a Friday afternoon, the Australian Pies and Quiches are to die for. Order at the counter and then find a place to sit or take the food to go. The place only has seating for six inside, but there is ample seating outdoors. The daily made tarts are also amazing. The lemon curd tart is pure heaven.
