I've got a weekend in Sydney coming up in June and will have a few hours to kill before flying home on a Sunday. Any suggestions for chocolate or pastry shops to stop in at?
Zokoko. It's out west, not in the city, but worth the trip for excellent chocolate.
If you aren't that bothered with looking for single origin chocolate, then Haighs on George St (in the city).
For macaroons you can't go past Adriano Zumbo, he has a shop in Manly which is a nice ferry ride from Circular Quay.
Thanks - I would love to get out to Zokoko but my time is a bit limited for that. I'm based in Melb so we have Haighs here (which I do enjoy). I've got Zumbo on my list along with Laduree, Bourke St Bakery and Gelato Messina at this stage.
Check out Broadsheet for places to go, it's a really good guide for finding out what is happening in the city. Here is a link to chocolate places on there. Have fun!
A little more confection oriented but I though Bon Bon do a great job (in their particular niche) - http://www.bonbon.com.au/
