A.P Bakery's third outpost will entice city workers back to the office with its catalogue of cult-favourite baked goods.
July 24, 2023
After building a cult following at Paramount House's rooftop and in a sleepy Newtown backstreet, A.P Bakery has opened a third Sydney outpost, this time enticing city workers back to the CBD with delectable pastries and lunch treats on Barrack Street.
The A.P team's third bakery and cafe brings all of their favourites to a hole in the wall hidden among the hustle and bustle of a pedestrian-only section of Barrack Street. Keep an eye out for the warm glow of the bakery and the bright yellow A.P Place sign and head in to discover some of the best baked goods and brunch items Sydney has to offer.
The menu here follows the A.P formula pretty closely. There's top-notch coffee from Reuben Hills, a range of sandwiches including the famous egg and cheese sando and a new cauliflower toastie, and a daily list of pastries, cakes, pies and bread. After extensive 'research', we can confirm that the Sri Lankan chicken curry pie, Aleppo pepper and asiago cheese scrolls, and fig leaf cream and rhubarb croissants are all must-tries if they're on the menu the day you visit.
There are also a few special items that have been created specifically for the CBD shop. From 11am you can nab thick slices of pizza that you'll only find on Barrack Street, plus sandwiches made with the same bianca dough. And there's a cheeky salt and vinegar hash brown on the menu that's worth a try.
If you needed an excuse to head back to the office, there aren't many better than A.P's creations. Because if you wanted to visit on a Saturday or Sunday, you're out of luck — A.P Place is only open on weekdays. Time to call in sick and get your hands on a cauliflower toastie.
