Just because the Bakehouse on Wentworth is tucked away along a quiet residential street in Blackheath, doesn’t mean that it’s lacking trade. On the contrary, the little bakehouse famous for its organic sourdough bread and gourmet pies is humming. If the weather is fine, take a seat in the front courtyard or when the winter chill sets in, there’s lots of room indoors. If you’ve got a sweet tooth like me, you’ll love the cakes and tarts, absolutely delicious! I am loading up on calories before I hit the Grand Canyon Circuit that leaves from Evans Lookout, so I am glad when I realise the Bakehouse does a Devonshire Tea. The scones are okay, but are a bit dry and a tad salty, and aren’t served with enough jam or cream. I’m not a fan of the portion-controlled jams and the cream is too light and aerated for my taste. I didn’t bother to ask for more jam and cream, and I am sure the friendly relaxed staff would be more than happy to oblige. Check out the Bakehouse’s other outlets at Glenbrook, Leura and Springbrook.
Tea: A small selection of tea bag teas served in a small pot.
Overall: A quieter option away from the main part of Blackheath.
