Theme Day - Bakeries

Each weekend, it is difficult to negotiate the corner of Bourke and Devonshire Streets in Surry Hills. Their breads and their pastries are sought after, with people coming for miles to join the queue.

Paul Allam and David McGuinness began Bourke Street Bakery in the winter of 2004. Their hazelnut and raisin sourdough, and their rhubarb and almond tart are well worth the queue.

Today is Theme Day for City Daily Photo Bloggers around the world. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

"hazelnut and raisin sourdough" and "rhubarb and almond tart" sound quite delicious. If you could send me a piece of them... Fortunately there is a lovely bakery in my quarter...

Oh yes, hazelnut and raisin sourdough. The thought makes me drool, Julie.
Going to the bakery is one of the things on my list for today, but I think I'll have to make do with plain sourdough bread.

Looks and sounds most inviting. I can smell fresh baked bread.

Mark said...

Yum Yum Yum!

Dianne said...

You would find me lining up for the rhubarb and almond tart Julie ... There's something wonderfully warm & inviting about bakeries.

Jim said...

It's quite a popular spot. Have tasted some of their sandwiches.

Feels to be rather a corner stone of life - wonderful where alike is possible.


Please have a good new month ahead.

Ann said...

Looks like a very popular place. I'd love to live in a cosmopolitan area that has places like that.

Oh Julie this post made me very happy, I know this place so well, Dave and Courtney live just a bit up from here on Bourke St and whenever we're over it's a favorite spot to get coffee and pastries..In fact this is where their very unconventional 'wedding tarts' came from. Thanks Julie, I was so hoping that you'd snap this one.

p.s. I meant to say Julie,that when you click on the theme day site your URL thingy is not working.

Julie said...

Yes, I know my Theme Day thingy is bit working. My TDT never works! Yet, the link on the general portal works a treat. And yet the post address looks similar to many many other post addresses. I have requested assistance, but they dont seem to be able to help. I just live with it.

But I do thank the people who persevere and find my post by other means ... something to do with skinning cats ...

Hazelnut and raisin bread... sounds amazing!! On a theme day to skin a cat my way, I check in with Ann or Jim and visit you via the link on the right. Top job!

Rae Walter said...

I will schedule a visit for the next time I am in Sydney Julie. Perhaps you could join me in a little decadence!

the customers all look young and healthy. these guys must be doing something right.

NixBlog said...

Wow! Their goodies MUST be extra good, judging from the queues.

Alan said...

This is where London loses out a little. It is often too cold and wet to queue outside:-) Interestingly, one place I do often see queues in London is at St Ali, a Melbourne spin off.

Prem said...

Ha! this is a not so busy bakery. They must be good huh?

Julie Storry said...

Yep, they be wonderful!

Boulangerie says warm soup and fresh crusty bread to me.
