Central Baking Depot: Neutral Bay (03 March 2013)

Tucked away on the quieter Grosvenor Street in Neutral Bay, Central Baking Depot provides a great one-stop cafe for coffee, pastries/baked goods and take-away bread. As the “younger brother” to Bourke Street Bakery, the consistency of reliably crunchy and chewy sourdough bread is apparent here too minus the line of customers!

Pork and Fennel Sausage roll $4.50
 I really enjoyed the light, buttery and flaky pastry that encased the pork and fennel sausage roll, but was slightly disappointed with the bland-tasting pork and fennel filling. I love fennel but unfortunately I couldn’t taste any fennel-goodness in the sausage roll today. 
Sourdough fruit toast $3 
The 2 slices of sourdough fruit toast was really delicious, especially when served with a side of ricotta cheese. The bread was generously filled with mixed nuts and cranberries. 

Overall Central Baking Depot is a great cafe to stop by for a quick bite and coffee. The food menu isn’t extensive, but then I suppose the main focus is on the bread and a few pastry items. The service is friendly and relatively quick, and did I mention there is no lines?
