If you're touring around the Central Coast in search of tasty treats, Burnt Honey Bakery is a must. You'll find it directly opposite Copacabana Beach, so you can enjoy your coffee and croissant with a side of spectacular coastal views.Burnt Honey has some of the best handmade pastries in the area, with wife duo Hayley Thorncraft and Joanna Fairall (both Black Star Pastry) behind it. It's got a strong community feel to it, with milk crates out the front for those who want to scoff their snacks there. The bakery uses local suppliers wherever possible and follows an eco-conscious ethos, too.

You'll want to grab a couple of custard tarts (flavoured with cassia bark and lemon zest), a peach and vanilla danish and some of the shop's signature biscuits — burnt honey, salted almond and creamy milk choc chips — as well as a loaf of freshly baked sourdough and flaky croissants.
