Yes, I know. I mentioned how stuffed Jaz and I were after brunch at Four Ate Five… but Bourke Street Bakery was juuust around the corner and it seemed such a waste not to check it out before heading back to Coogee! So we popped in 🙂
We rationalised that we would get the pastries to go…but the pastries never quite made it out the door. Oops.
The bakery has many locations throughout the city. This one is tiny! The Saturday crowd lined up outside and never seemed to shorten no matter how many people stepped out of the bakery with take-away boxes filled with pastries and freshly baked breads.
Jaz and I shared the ginger brûlée tart. The ginger custard was so refreshing and smooth, and I loved the crunch of the caramelised sugar coating the pastry. The tart was sprinkled with bright green pistachios. A great ingredient combination that wouldn’t be my typical first choice, but it was sublime.
Of course we had to try the chocolate dessert: a slice of flourless chocolate cake. Just how I like it: dark and not too sweet. Decadent.
