Why is it always the spontaneous finds that turn out to be the best? 🤔 (food for thought I guess.. LITERALLY!)
Bake Bar has definitely become one of my more “regular” pit stops over the last six months. And I kid you not when I say, ever since I discovered this little hidden gem on the way home, I’ve been head over heels 😉💕.
Bake Bar is situated on the well known McEvoy Street of Alexandria – I think we’d all agree it’s one of the most renowned brunch areas in Sydney 👍🏼, close to Newtown too! (Some amazing cafes there as well) – So it should come as no surprise that there are quite a few cafes along this block, home to: Substation Cafe, Bread and Circus, Grandma’s, The Grounds, COOH, Sonoma and much more. If you’re from the area or looking for somewhere to start your brunching adventures.. I’d say Alexandria is a great place to start!
Moving on –> Yep. I’m there quite frequently.. anyone who has me on Snapchat has definitely been a victim to my bakebar spam 😅. Even so, when it looks and tastes so yummy I feel like it’d be a shame not share it with you all ). I would be exaggerating if I said a daily basis, however I have come quite close – Let’s just say, whenever I can squeeze it in between my brunch adventures, the beach, gym and to and from work – atleast twice a week – I mean I am a foodie afterall, so it would be counter intuitive to not leave room for the array of other cafes in Sydney too 😋! BUT (and I know you should never begin a sentence with “but”, however speaking out loud it just seems appropriate.. it’s a blog right?) the fact that I keep coming back… speaks for itself 👍🏼.
Oh did I mention? It’s an Artisan Bakery.. they know bread and they know it well!
• Acai Smoothie – $7.50
Organic acai pulp mixed with banana
BEST Acai smoothies in Sydney, and I’m not over exaggerating, but I’ll concede it’s the best I’ve “tried” so far and yes, I’ve tasted quite a few 👍🏼. It isn’t explicitly stated on their menu what’s in the smoothie – the secret to it ‘tasting so great’ obviously hidden 😉, yet I do there’s 100% banana 🍌 in there!
• Flourless Cupcakes – approx. ~$6
YES! There’s NO flour.. how’s that for avoiding bad carbs 👊🏼 wooo! – it is bikini body season after all, which makes me feel a little “less” guilty eating these bad boys 😅 – oh and they taste GREAT, very light weight, come in FOUR amazing flavours to choose from and not too sweet ☺️!
Post brunch snacking 😝 – Can't get enough of these FLOURLESS cupcakes 😍 Food finds on the go 👊🏼 Yes! You can still enjoy little treats and stop offs in the middle of your busy work life 👍🏼 @bakebarbakery Apple 🍎🍏 👌🏼 #hustleisreal #workhardplayhardeatevenharder 😉 #brunchonthego #brunchadventures #sydneyeats #cafesarewhereitsat #bakebar #artisancafe #foodphotography #talesofabrunchiesydney
• Egg Whites (with rye sourdough) – $13.90

I’m usually dining out than dine in because it works best with my lifestyle. Personally, the most enjoyable part is being able to conveniently take away these little goodies and share them with my family or friends. Yes, there are also times where I sneak in a treat or two at the beach haha.. you only live once, might as well enjoy it!
Triple 🅱️ action going on today – "Bake Bar Bonding" with @yasemiiin_x over my FAVOURITE Acai Smoothies @bakebarbakery 😝💜 #sisterfromanothermister #bakebar #pitstop #foodies #acaibowlsydney #acaimission #acaismoothie #dnm #bondingtime #alwaysoverfood YES, we grabbed some flourless muffins too 😍! But those bad boys are hiding away in that paper bag for later.. hehe 😋 #instafood #sydneyeats #brunch #smoothie #foodphotography #talesofabrunchiesydney Bake Bar Alexandria
It isn’t too bad depending on the time and day of the week you’re brunching on – There’s actually a parking lot just off the corner street of McEvoy (entrance via Stokers Avenue) before Bake Bar where I usually find parking. If I’m lucky enough before the ‘3pm no stopping’ is enforced, you may find street parking on McEvoy itself, right in front of the cafe 😆 – although there’s lots of tradesmen working so street parking can be a little challenging. However, keep in mind, It’s not paid parking, which is a bonus 🎉 So you can absolutely save more money aside for brunch!
