Black Star Pastry is one of our favourite haunts in Sydney's New Town. Christopher Thé's pastries are exemplary, the coffee dark and brooding and the tarts are worth a rather long journey.
The vibe here is appealing with mis-matched low stools scattered outside and a cushion-littered bench inside in the window for those wanting to linger over coffee and a perfect pastry.
The La Marzocco coffee machine is used to great effect with dark, strong, brooding, but not bitter coffee being turned out that has an excellent mouth-feel.
You can come here for breakfast and have something as simple as toast and Seville orange marmalade or a croissant. Later in the day you might prefer a baguette sandwich. Or you might just like a tea or coffee accompanied by a wonderful 'ginger ninja'.
But whatever you do, don't miss the amazing salty, caramel chocolate tart. It is a revelation!
