Bourke St Bakery

Good coffee, great pastries, brekky/snack for less than $6 - always worth a visit, this time it was for a quick breakfast.

The only thing that grates on my nerves is the service - most of the time it's absentminded at best (except for this one guy who I think is the barista).

Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Muffin $4.00

I've just figured out why these muffins always have a wonderful crunch on the top (don't you think muffin-tops are the best part of the muffin?). They throw sugar on top, then bake the muffin - so when it comes out it's like eating one of those Danish sugar cookies. Dotted generously with blocks of dark chocolate that melt when the muffin is zapped in the microwave for ~20 secs.

Praline twist $2.50

A caramely, butterscotchy, nutty pastry twist. It's not unlike a soft version of a palmier. Best value, and very satisfying.

Piccolo latte $3.00
Yes, I'm repetitive, this is my coffee of choice. It's done very well here.

Lunch picks:
Pork & fennel roll
Crunchy, buttery pastry encasing real pork meat (no mystery meat here) flavoured with fennel seeds.

Bacon & gruyere quiche
There is something so sharp about the gruyere that makes it a perfect partner to the bacon.
