I love discussing food and after talking to some work colleagues about pastries, one of them mentioned delicious croissants and pastries at Chifley shops. I had no choice but to head out first thing Saturday morning to Chifley!
Wild Rye bakery is located within the supermarket at Chifley shops.
Croissants, breads and tarts – oh my! What to choose?
Okay, maybe I got a little over excited, but I don’t regret my choices:
(clockwise starting from top left)
cinnamon croissant – a subtle cinnamon taste inside a more ‘bready’ croissant
poppy seed croissant – oh my! When my work friend told this was her favourite, I thought it was an interesting concept: ‘poppy seeds were inside a croissant’. This was possibly my favourite bakery treat, the poppy seeds make a sweet nutty paste inside an almost hollow croissant.
cheese and bacon croissant – I am a big fan of bacon and cheese anything, so I was surprised to find that this wasn’t my favourite bakery treat of the day. I much prefer bacon and cheese rolls.
cream cheese and sultana danish – a nice ‘not to sweet’ combination.
apple danish – this would have been more delicious if I warmed it with some ice cream!
and a custard puff – an awesome thick custard sandwiched between a delicious sugary pastry
If you’re thinking about running to Chifley shops now to grab some croissants hold your horses, I hear the best day to go is Saturday, preferably in the morning to avoid disappointment.
You would think I would be content with all these bakery treats but I convinced Timmy to come with me on another bakery adventure as I heard there was something worth travelling to Curtain shops for.
