Sydney Dessert Wizard Andy Bowdy Is Opening His Own Cafe
His epic cakes and pastries are coming to an Enmore shopfront later this year.
There's never a bad time for a piece of cake, particularly when it's made by one of the best dessert chefs in Sydney. We're talking about Andy Bowdy, of course — and come November, the online operation run by the former Hartsyard pastry chef will be expanding his knee-weakening range, both in terms of the types of delicious morsels available and just where the hungry masses can get them.
First things first: yes, Andrew Bowden is opening a cafe, called Saga, much to the delight of his ever-growing number of Instagram followers. As Good Food reports, expect to be flocking to Enmore as soon as the eatery's first wondrous creations come out of the oven. If you like decadent, delectable sweet treats like chocolate fudge cake with Milo mousse, Malteasers and torched meringue or banana cake with peanut butter, dulce de leche, passionfruit and caramelised popcorn, then you know it's a sugar coma waiting to happen.
That's not the only exciting news, though. What's a pâtissier to do when he's mastered his art — and won over tastebuds all around town, including in collaboration with Gelato Messina? Start whipping up other sweet pastries, epic pies, American deli-style sandwiches, alcoholic thickshakes and brunch-appropriate cocktails as well, obviously.
Basically, Bowden's new offering will be serving up amazing food fare for all occasions — and all times of the day too. Bowden and his partner — and current Hartsyard manager — Maddison Howes have dubbed this Saga, we're guessing because opening your own cafe is indeed that. Given how creative their cakes are, we're sure this saga will be a long and delightful one.
Find Andy Bowdy's Saga at 178 Enmore Road, Enmore from February/March 2017. For more details, keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram.
