Brewtown Newtown, Newtown

I’ve heard a lot about Brewtown Newtown, especially the variety of cronuts which they are known for. We tried visiting last month with a large group of 7 and were told there was a one hour wait, so we left, but I decided to come back another time in a smaller group. This time just 2 of us visited at 1pm on a Sunday and there was still a half hour wait but it wasn’t too bad as we stood outside soaking up the sunshine.

Black Star Pastry, Newtown

There’s been a lot of fuss made about Black Star Pastry, but I haven’t had a chance to head over and try its legendary Strawberry, Watermelon and Rose Cream Cake until recently. It seems that the masses are still loving this patisserie, because when we arrived at 2pm on a public holiday, we found quite a queue ahead of us which was a worry as we only had an hour before the bakery closed. Luckily, the line moved quite quickly and soon enough we were inside the tiny shop itself, gawking at all the different pastry creations on offer.
