Like a diamond in the rough, Waterloo stalwart Wild Cockatoo is set in the most unassuming of spots on Botany Road — and it's turning out some of the best sourdough in the city.

The bakery's organic bread is lovingly displayed in baskets set atop a massive, wrap-around display case. The sourdough is available in heaps of flavours that change daily, including saltbush, nigella seed, rosemary and potato, raisin and wholemeal. The bakery also bakes baguettes, rolls, flatbreads, flaky meat pies and decadently buttery croissants.

Wild Cockatoo is open six days per week until sold out — you can bet it'll sell out s. While you wait, be sure to check out the many colourful cockatoos that adorn the walls.
