An authentic French Patisserie in Sydney

Located at a harbourside suburb of Rose Bay about 7km east of Sydney CBD, La Bretagne Patisserie is nestled among the shop lots in Plumer Road Shopping Villange.

This little bakery was established in 1969, specialising in French pastry. It brings an authentic taste of French pastries, tarts, cakes, biscuits, bread and savory to Sydneysiders.

I was introduced to La Bretagne by colleagues at work and decided to check it out with my other half. It was a beautiful day so we took a ferry ride from Circular Quay to Rose Bay. The patisserie is just a short walk away from picturesque Rose Bay wharf.

Beautiful and tempting pastries

We could smell the aroma of freshly baked pastries and bread even before entering the shop. The display window is lined with beautiful and delicate pieces which look very tempting. Simply delightful and inviting!

We were there specifically for their tiramisu cake with candied almond. Although it's not French, the cake receives rave reviews from my colleagues. Some of the products like cakes are not displayed in the shop but they are all listed on their website.

Generous topping of candied almond

The tiramisu cake is not sold by slices but a whole cake in three different sizes - small ($49), medium($59), large($59). Since we had come here all the way, we decided to buy a small one which is still too much for both of us. While waiting for our order to be prepared (topping of nuts), the generous shop assistant offered us some candied almonds to sample. Delicious!

As much as we were excited to receive our order, it dawned upon us that we did not drive our car! Which means, someone had to carry a box of 2 kg of tiramisu cake and walked back to the wharf! We worried about our cake the whole time but thankfully we got home in time and chilled it in the fridge. Lesson learned, if you are ordering cakes and chilled products, it's easier and better to drive.

Layers of coffee soaked cake and mascarpone

The tiramisu cake is indeed delicious! I'm not a fan of cakes and dessert but I could have this every day. It's not overly sweet and you can taste the coffee soaked cake layered with mascarpone. The candied almonds add some crunch and texture to the cake. The flavor of roasted almond and coffee blend in very well together. We will definitely return to the bakery for more.

La Bregtane is open daily for breakfast and lunch from 7pm - 6pm (Mon-Fri) and 5pm on weekends.

This says this bakery specialises in French pastries yet it has the best tiramisu, which is an authentic Italian cake!
