Bourke St Bakery

Watercolour and charcoal
Bourke St Bakery is a great place for coffee, lunch and to pick up fantastic bread.  Paul Allam and Paul McGuiness are bakers/chefs who started this business in 2004.  The first Bourke Bakery is in Bourke St Surry Hills in a tiny terrace house.  People line up along the street to pick up their coffee and the rest.  There are a number of these bakeries around Sydney and this one is in Mitchell St Marrickville.
Each of the bakeries make a particular thing, for example at one they make the bread, at another they make the pastries etc.  Then in the early morning they run around delivering all the goods to each other.
Bourke St is also starting classes in baking including bread making.

 It was a lovely winter day today and people were enjoying their food and drink outside.  I read the newspaper inside with my coffee and then was inspired to do this sketch on the footpath opposite.
