Since early 2020, 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.

A.P. Town arrived in Newtown as the team's first standalone venue. The bakery and cafe is tucked away behind north King Street on Bucknell Street in a quaint red-brick inner west building filling a once quiet alleyway with lines out the door each day.

Open 7am–2.30pm Monday–Saturday and 8am–2:30pm Sundays, the outpost is a hit with inner west residents heading down for their morning coffee, a mid-week baked treat or that weekend breakfast. The response from locals was huge from the get-go, with A.P. Town selling out before midday on its first day of operation.

The menu is simple. There are pies filled with chicken curry, smoked brisket or native Warrigal greens. There are a range of cakes, too, with whiskey canale, three milk bombolini and a Basque cheese cake standing out.

The menu also features pastries like buttermilk croissants or Aleppo pepper and asiago cheese scrolls; quince, ricotta and almond Danishes; and bread ranging from seeded bagel and baguettes through to smokey eggplant and pork flatbread and fenugreek and sesame loaf. 

As for the drinks, you'll find delicious coffee, tea and fruit juices.
