Cafes, Eat, Sydney / 17 August 2020

Swing by Banksia Bakehouse for decadent cakes, croissants, pies and pastries in the CBD.

Baking has become a new passion project for many of us in 2020. From baking banana bread to crafting epic batches of cookies, creating delicious sweet treats has been the ultimate way to beat boredom and boost spirits while staying at home. And while we’ll never say no to a late-night baking spree, we do love tasting sweet treats crafted by the professionals.

If you’re looking for some of the best baked treats Sydney has to offer, make sure to swing by the exciting new CBD opening, Banksia Bakehouse. Set at 225 George Street (in Grosvenor Place located blow Rosetta by Neil Perry), Banksia Bakehouse hopes to be the city’s go-to cakes store with a selection of sweet and savory baked goods on offer.

The idea for Banksia Bakehouse came about 2 years ago. The team (responsible for other sweet treat destinations such as Passiontree Velvet Patisserie, THICC Cookies and BIGG Brownies) are on the mission to make this venue Sydney’s most iconic local bakehouse in the heart of the CBD. From serving top-notch croissants to being the go-to destination for office birthday and celebration cakes, Banksia Bakehouse has big plans to become an iconic cake shop in the heart of Sydney.

Nestled in the middle of the CBD, Banksia Bakehouse’s handmade pastries and pies draw inspiration for Australian native flora to deliver delicious and unique sweet treats. The venue, surrounded by three walls of glass, elegantly showcase the selection of delights on offer, including cakes, croissants and pastries. For those that want to see the baking process in action, you can ever watch croissants being roll out, pies being filled and cakes being decorated from behind the glass.
