I love this place with passion. Bourke Street Bakery has delicious savoury breads, sourdough of all sorts and my favourite tarts.
They used to do an amazing pistachio and ginger brulee tart which seems to have been replaced by this vanilla brulee tart with strawberry puree. (A good thing since strawberries are in season now)

The tart was gorgeous. A delicate layer of crystalised sugar floated lightly above the creamy vanilla filling. The buttery case was rich & just as satisfying!

I also picked up a plain croissant to munch on… it was light and flaky.. mmmmmm 🙂
