Why locals love it
The food's so good that going out of your way to make a pit stop doesn't feel like an indulgence. Or even a detour. Just common sense. All roads seem to lead here anyway, because once you've tried it you smell Bourke St Bakery everywhere. And even though locals know the recipes are (pretty much) the same at the other outlets, this is the original.
Why you should visit it
Opened in 2004, it's a Sydney institution. You may wonder how it become an institution so quickly. And you'll have plenty of time to think about that while queueing for your slow cooked wagyu beef brisket, pickled cucumber, cheese, dijonnaise and sour cabbage sandwich. Or ginger brulee tart. Personally, I wouldn't bother. Why question perfection?
The other outlets are in Alexandria, Marrickville, Neutral Bay, Noth Sydney and Potts Point
