I am a hungry artist living and working in Sydney. I am completing a philosophy degree and enjoy life.

S Bread is sure to spread
S Bread is conveniently located at the mall that surrounds Town Hall Station, on the side that will take you onto George Street near to the cinemas. S Bread is a carb festival. The self-serve bakery allows customers to have tongs and a tray and load it up with whatever delicious baked goods that they desire. The food is hygienically kept inside a sliding door cabinet. You slide open and take what you want, place it on to the tray and pay at the cashier desk when you are done.
The benefit to this system is that you get to actually choose which bread roll or pizza slice is for you – allowing you to select the one with the slightly larger size or the one with more olives, and you can take your time to decide without feeling like other customers are being inconvenienced by your slowness. All of the prices are labelled on the cabinets and are very reasonable for the quality. You can enjoy a wonderful cheese, onion and garlic naan bread that is thick and crunchy and fresh for less than $4. They have a wide range of bread-like offerings, both sweet and savoury in flavour.
The cashier is friendly and efficient and will tally up your hoard in no time. They give you a carry bag for your baked treasures that comes in handy too. The shop is very clean and the tongs and trays are located in the middle of the store that sits alongside the pre-packaged sets of buns. Freshly baked bread is packaged and ready to be purchased here too, along with a selection of sweet baked goods, all arranged on a pristine white table.
The onion, cheese and garlic naan bread is filling enough for a lunch and the sweet custard-filled, almond-topped croissants are delightful as are the freshly baked scones. You can even get a piece of battered fish on a bread roll for less than $4. This place is cheap, fresh and fast.
The cakes are also nice and you can purchase whole cakes or slices. A creamy Strawberry Snowy Mountain cake is only $33 and you can get a Sweet Memory (Raspberry Mousse) for $21, a large Cherry Gateau will only set you back $38.
The rainbow jelly with a little topping of whipped cream and chocolate brings back childhood memories and the orange jelly topped with real orange slices is refreshing in a little clear cup for $3.90. The cake slices range from cheesecakes to taro or green tea gateau to pavlova, all for $4.50.
The only negative about this shop is the lack of coffee but do not fear, Two Black Sheep make a fantastic brew and are located next door to S Bread. You can have your cake and eat it too at S bread. Enjoy it the next time you are in the city.
Been to this particular bakery on more than one occasion. Please note that they ONLY accept cash - NO credit card or eftpos facilities. Also many of the 'savoury' style breads are very much on the sweet side!
