It was a lovely day to drive around. Sunny weekend with autumn breeze what can be better. We stopped at Bourke Street Bakery to get some breakie before another one and half hour ride to the Nantian temple.
Bourke Street Bakery
633 Bourke Street, Surry Hills
Ph: (02) 9699 1011
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 07am-06pm
The thing you need to know for this extremely famous lil' bakery shop beside of their marvelous baked goods is to beware of the long queue but anyway they move quick. When we drove around looking for car park, glancing the front of the shop, I was so happy when saw that the shop was not that busy (as pict above), this the first time actually I've seen this quiet, but unfortunately we had to park our car first and when we came back, seems like everyone just turned up at the same time... but they moved pretty quick and really worth the wait.
