Bourke Street Bakery


The fresh aroma of bread and other baked goods,, colourful pastries displayed at the window,, customers sitting outside on assorted tables and benches,, the word “boulangerie” in cursive script hanging above the door... That’s all it took for J&L to enter Bourke St Bakery.

With its confined space, we were pretty much cramped with the other customers and had to make quick decisions about our choices. In the end, we chose one savoury and one sweet for a balanced snack. 

The Pear and Almond Tart was J’s choice. The cute little tart had a firm and crispy crust with a soft, sort of crumbly textured almond filling. The sweet delight is then garnished with a lovely slice of caramelized pear :)

L decided to try the Spinach Corn and Feta Quiche which was a light quiche with a good balance of spinach corn and feta. The feta was creamy but not too overpowering. The spinach and corn gave a good substance to the quiche filling.

J also noticed the bakery’s mini fridge stocked with various drinks – in particular Bourke St Bakery’s own Belgian Chocolate Milk .This milk was absolutely delicious. Cool and milky smooth, it reminded us of the distinct malty flavour of lindt chocolates! It was a really nice refreshment and the fact that it was packed in bottles meant that we could easily bring it back home!

Bourke St Bakery also has a cute row of benches and tables stacked on the side of the shop- a very friendly environment that is perfect for a catch up with old friends over coffee (or one of the ice drinks :P) … and perhaps a pastry or two hehe :)

Nibble on Nibblies! xx 

ps: have a happy easter everyone <3 ! enjoy the long weekend, take care, be safe, eat lots :)
