Sydney’s best Bakeries
It’s hard not to love a baked good, right? Sure those following the Atkins diet may have a different opinion, but we think deep down even they too love baked goods. It’s so hard to resist that crispy on the outside, soft in the middle loaf of artisnal sourdough or that deliciously flaky and buttery croissant, or that perfectly short shortcrust pastry with its sweet filling (or savoury for that matter) . Indulging in baked goods has the power to make us feel warm on the inside and just that little bit naughty!
But just where can you find the best bakeries and patisseries in Sydney? After all we want to make those calories count. If we are going to blow our weekly calorie quota on a few mouthfuls – we need to make it worth it.
Never fear – here is our list of Sydney’s 10 best Bakeries and Patisseries (in no particular order).
Go forth and may you eat guilt free. There is always the gym tomorrow…
- BOURKE STREET BAKERY
One of Sydney’s most famous bakeries, the original Surry Hills location has expanded to reach more Sydney suburbs. Specialties are the pork and fennel sausage rolls and the Ginger Brûlée Tart. But honestly it’s all good!

- SONOMA BAKERY
Sonoma handmake some of the best breads in Sydney and they also have cafes attached so you can enjoy a cup of coffee and breakfast or lunch while you’re there picking up your bread. We particularly love their Miche loaf (insider tip – you can ask to buy just a half or quarter if you won’t eat the whole thing!)
