Now Open: A.P. Town Is the Standalone Newtown Outpost from the Much-Hyped A.P. Bakery Team
Tucked away in an inner-west backstreet, A.P. Town is here to fulfil all of your coffee, pastry, toastie and bread needs.
June 23, 2022
Over the past year and a half, A.P. Bakery has built a cult following among Sydneysiders through its renowned bake sales. Initially popping up across Sydney before finding a home on the rooftop of Paramount House Hotel with A.P. House, the team has been winning over locals for 18 months with its bread, pastries, pies and egg rolls.
Now, A.P. has arrived in Newtown with its inaugural standalone venue, A.P. Town. The bakery and cafe is tucked away behind north King Street on Bucknell Street in a quaint red-brick inner west building.
Open 7.30am–2.30pm Wednesday–Sunday, the new outpost is sure to be a hit with inner west residents heading down for their morning coffee, a mid-week baked treat or weekend breakfast. The response has already been huge, with A.P. Town selling out before midday on its first day of operation.
The menu is simple. There are pies filled with pastrami, pork belly or native Warrigal greens. There are two toasties, too, a tuna melt and a next-level cheese toastie filled with onion, tomato, mustard, gruyere, asiago and cheddar. And there's an Aleppo and chickpea soup served with a buttered A.P. baguette.
Then there's the Baked Today section of the menu, featuring pastries like buttermilk croissants or Aleppo pepper and asiago cheese scrolls; cakes including a chocolate and liquorice tart; and bread ranging from seeded rye loaf and baguettes through to chimichurri choripán and hazelnut, fig and apricot fruit loaf.
As for the drinks, you'll find coffee supplied by Reuben Hills, tea is by Teacraft, Strange Love sodas and West End's juices and smoothies.
With lines out the door expected, it's best to keep up to date with how things are selling and what new creations the A.P. team is cooking up over at the A.P. Bread Instagram.
