Like that delicious morning smell from a tasty bakery shop? Bourke Street Bakery tastes as good as it smells.

Not only famous for it’s savouries but their desserts and sweets. From ginger crème brûléetart (a crowd favourite) to their pear and rhubarb muffins, they balance the delicious flavours and flaky pastry just right. The place is quite small and can be quite busy, so you’re best bet is to grab, go and devour. With a good dose of pastries and cakes to choose from, it will be quite difficult to choose what to eat for the day. But hey, you can always go back and try more right?
