Bakeries are not only wonderful places to purchase a wide variety of breads, pastries, cakes and pies, but they are also fantastic places to sample different cuisines. For example you can try European delights at La Banette Patisserie, Italian treats at A&P Sulfaro Pasticceria Italiana and Malaysian sweets at Pappa Roti.
To kick of the list, lets start with the popular The French House, located in Waterloo, which is an establishment renown for delicious desserts. Another top pick is La Banette Patisserie, located in Glebe, for quality tarts and sweets. Saint-Germain Patisserie, located in Waterloo has fantastic croissants (or does that honour belong to Croissant d'Or in Potts Point?), while Hellenic Bakery, located in Marrickville, is great for Greek inspired sweet and savoury treats, while Sweet Belem, located in Petersham, has a yummy Portuguese egg tart.
There are quite a few Sydney bakeries to pick from, so I am going to hand it over to you. If you know of a great bakery located in or around Sydney, please leave a comment.
Pasticceria Papa at 145 Ramsay Street Haberfield has a huge range of Italian inspired pastries, cakes and breads. The stand-out favourite is a ricotta cheese cake that is exceptional. The long display case will leave you spoilt for choice and the cafe area serves great coffee as well as light meals. Very popular and busy on weekends.
