Becasse Bakery specialises in quality French artisan breads, an array of pastries, cakes and muffins. The bakery has a mouth watering patisserie selection, showcased on stone bench tops under glass cabinets. A viewing window gives an insight into the daily life of a baker, as customers enjoy a fresh coffee and croissant seated at the stone counter. The commercial bakery is kept busy producing fresh bread for Charlie & Co. Burgers in addition to select city restaurants.
I don't often try at this little cafe / bakery thing not because it's always busy, but because I feel anxious that I have no idea how to pronounce it's name. It is pronounced "because" or "Be-cass" or "Be-cass-eh"? I'm out of my fancy-league. Located in the food court level of Westfield Pitt Street, if you take the express escalator from the ground floor, you find yourself smack bang at Becasse and you're instantly tempted to grab a sneaky sweet treat. This place always catches my eye not only because it's the first thing I see, but because of the amazing cakes, breads and pastries spread under it's glass counter and my desperation to know how to say "Becasse". The staff are always polite and attentive plus the barista (from both times I've had coffee) has been extremely nice and just spreads an infectious happiness. You go Glen Coco. Despite being a soy-drinking-coffee weirdo, they have had no issues delivering a smooth and satisfying coffee plus a sweetread more
At the end of the Westfield food court are some little gems, including this bakery. The baked goods are beautifully laid out, sweet temptations beckoning you to give in to your gluttonous urges. My eyes pass the tarts, the croissants, the mini cakes, ahh... Bread, that looks like a reasonable decision. At $7,95 a loaf, it ain't cheap. But everything, even plain bread tastes good here. It's the fluffy kind, nit the chewy, with a crunchy crust and perfectly browned top. They don't slice bread here but you can order a Half loaf if you choose. Try everything at least once...
Becasse Bakery is one small yet exciting bakery shop strategically located at the corner of the busy Westfield Sydney food court. Despite sharing seats with other shops and looks like having a feat of yet another bakery, their cakes and breads are actually of high quality. During my last visit I picked up a mango and coconut tart slice. It was nicely made and of beautiful dome shape. The taste was quite delicious. The same with pear and almond tart slice which was quite filling and of considerable serving size. They also sell hot drinks in which chai latte and milk chocolate are my usual orders. However I wouldn't say that they knock it out of the park with flying colours. The staffs have always been friendly and helpful since the first time I went to their shop. Overall, it is always worth going back to this shop - especially when you use their loyalty coffee card which can give you more bang for your buck.
