If you’re looking for some of the best cronuts in Sydney, then Brewtown Newtown is the place to be!
A cronut is a croissant-doughnut pastry invented by New York City pasty chef, Dominique Ansel. The pastry is made by frying a laminated dough in grape seed oil and then sugared, filled and glazed.
Newtown has a bit of a name for itself, some even suggest it is ‘the’ food and culture hub with plenty of cafe’s and quaint spots to grab a bite to eat. Now, being from Surry Hills ourselves, we certainly didn’t need, nor want to head too far from home but our friend twisted our arm with the idea of great coffee and even better cronuts, and, am I glad he did! This place didn’t disappoint!
The actual cafe is set in a 19th century warehouse and has been there since 2013.
We popped over for breakfast and were seated immediately. However, 10 minutes later the line up was about 30 people – it is very popular (so if you know you’re going – why not try and book ahead!). Their menu is different to other cafes, everything has a little twist. I ended up having an off menu special which was pulled beef and poached eggs, and it worked!
Menu as at August 2016 attached below if anyone is keen!
After breakfast, it was time to see what all the fuss is about and get a cronut (or two). We picked up an original glazed and a banoffee. It left us wanting more!!
After breaky, you can pop up to the shop on level 1 where they have the cronut bakery (the smell up there is scrumptious) and also OConnell Street Merchants where you can select from some stylish pieces.
Brewtown Newtown is well worth the trip if you love your coffee and trying new spots for brunch!
