Best Pastries and more- Sydney

sydneycool went in search for Sydney’s best breakfast pastries and more.  What a great task  it was – eating many different pastries from all over Sydney – and all in the name of research.  I’m, sure some of you might be jealous! … and can you imagine, all without guilt because it was in the name of research – wish my waistline would understand that!!!

Now I know we may have left some out, as I can hear you scream what about ….. ….. but two things to think about, sydneycool did it and  not you and everyone thinks they know best.  And talking of best, these are the best pastries we found in Sydney.

You know that feeling – when a buttery croissant sticks to your fingers  and the flakes gently fall down and settle on your lap as you take another lustful bite.  You can hear that quiet moan as it crunches and snaps – but without care, you tear another bit and smother it with your favourite jam as your eyes close and you contemplate – wow that was good. Or when you put a knife through a loaf of bread and the first sound, as it breaks the crust – a sound that you almost can’t explain but you know you’re on a good thing so you try to prolong that moment before you put it in your mouth.  And then there’s that wonderful smell of fresh baked pastries and breads.

Our benchmark  was set very high –  our favourite boulangeries  in Paris - Du Pain et des Idees, 34 Rue Yves Toudic in the 10th arrondisement and Boulangerie au petit Versailles du Marais, cnr Rue Tiron and Rue Francois Miron in the 4th arrondisement.

We were looking for pastries and bread that had a feel of homemade –  something than doesn’t necessarily have to stand the test of time looking good 12 hours later or where the filling is what it is about.  In other words,  we were not interested in mass produced.

Organic Bread Bar is hot when it comes to bakeries  - traditional bread styles like l’ancienne.  The croissant was one of the best – the flavour is the factor that’s hard to even get close to and this one does it.

Brickfields is a new bakery that’s setting a high standard – their pain au chocolat is light and the chocolate soft with a bitter sweet end.

One of the best almond croissants we’ve ever had – just a sliver of almond paste, topped with toasted almonds with a light dusting of icing sugar.  Also check out our post on Flour and Stone.

There’s not much to be said about Adriana Zumbo that hasn’t been said.  Except to say, you should check out the Lab in  Rozelle and the brioche (not the traditional) with berries, almond and custard. Very nice.

    I have been in most of them and they are really good. Nonetheless, Fratelli paradiso isn’t as nice as it used to be. The patries are ok, but breakfast is very boring for Italian stands

    Dolcettini in dural it is hidden in north Western Sydney in a quiet street , it has by far tbe best most people even saying better than France. People who have been will all tell you the same thing. And their owners are in their mid 20′s. A real Jen, amazing.

      checked our Dolcettini – thanks Jemma. Loved the pastries
