The name Black Star has become quickly synonymous with some of the most popular pastries in Sydney; and their new cafe is set to become yet another culinary powerhouse, literally.
The fresh Black Star institution is situated just next door to Sydney’s renowned Powerhouse Museum, making it a prime attraction for exhibition enthusiasts and Ultimo office workers alike. But don’t let the cafe’s status as the latest edition of a relatively young company fool you into thinking they haven’t got the staples down pat.
The bacon and egg roll is perfectly cooked and brought to life with a tangy twist in the tomato style sauce; coupled with some consistently good Little Marionette coffee, it’s a pretty snazzy start to the day. Particularly if that start is on the run into a solid day at the museum.
The colourful, modern layout gives everyone heaps of space to chill out and enjoy some of the famous treats prepared by Christopher The and his crew of talented pastry chefs. The large, open kitchen provides a cheeky view into the intense inner workings of the cafe’s talented chefs; and it’s nice to see where all the food is coming from.
Most importantly, there’s no let down on quality. The pastries are just as good as we’ve come to expect from the Newtown and Rosebery establishments. Personal testament can be paid to the Custard Tart which, even at 9am was a superb way to round off breakfast.
