After reading raving reviews in Time Out Sydney, I had to try out the food at Black Star Patisserie. Last Tuesday I decided to make the most of my Sydney day trip and mission it out. I had checked the opening hours and planned my flight to land at 6.30am just in for breakfast opening at 7am. Getting out of Sydney airport took longer than anticipated. After a frustrating 2 hour wait at the immigration and customs line, I finally got out and jumped onto the first train to Newtown.
Anticipating my visit to the bakery I skipped breakfast on the plane. The piece of toast I had at 3am in the morning was just not cutting it. I needed food and I needed food quick! (I have a tendency to get angst without a substantial breakfast).
Upon my arrival I ordered a cup of soy chai and a mushroom quiche. I found a spot to sit and observed the locals were coming in and out getting the morning fix.
As my brain slowly came to life with each sip.
I ordered a cinnamon scroll.
Then a Raspberry galette. I thought the quiche was great, but wasn’t too sure if it was the hunger speaking. Oh my this was so so good! The crisp of the short crust pastry and gooey raspberry was a perfect marriage. I could easily live on this <3
Nothing can contest the smell of coffee and freshly baked goods in the morning.
I love the bread stand, it reminds me off the t-shirt display racks we had at Qubic before the renovation.
Wish I had more space in my belly to fit in these .
Macarons seemed very popular every third person in line ordered at least one to go.
I’m not a vegan, but it’s always nice to have options.
Ginger ninja’s! clearly there Asian
Strawberry crumble and gluten free brownie.
Can’t recall what this was, but I’m guessing by the looks of it green tea chiffon with coconut?
Orange cake with Persian fig and quince. I eyeballed and ran a million ideas through my head on how to carry it back to Auckland with me. Couldn’t do it this time round, but I’m determined to go back for a slice or two on my next visit.
Please don’t judge. I couldn’t walk out without trying at least one.
At the bakery I spied a yogi having breakfast on a Stark Gnome table, kids skipping about, police woman in uniform buying rounds, and a miniature Schnauzer waiting patiently outside. The place was immersed with all sorts of characters, Sydney in nut shell. I couldn’t think of a better place to have brekkie.
BioCups Made with a corn based lining as apposed to traditional paper cups that are lined with petroleum based plastic.It gets better, BioPak also makes compostable lids to partner up with the cups. Better for the health and the environment, touché Black Star for opting a sustainable alternative.
Spread/Toast station with a collection house jams, butter, and
Vegemite. One of these days you’ll find me with a loaf sitting right next to this. For now I’ll just dream.
