B: This blog post is very delayed but is the last Tasmanian post from my recent trip there – I just couldn’t let this blog post slide!
Jackman & McRoss Bakeries seems like the place to be, I’ve read food reviews recommending this place, as well as hearing from locals and friends back in Sydney. Mr.K and I arrived there during Sunday brunch and oh how busy it was! After a few minutes we were seated in the right side of the bakery which reminds me of a sunroom. It was a beautiful white, elegant room and had a great atmosphere.
I started off that morning with a soy latte ($3.8 + $0.2 soy). It was a nice coffee, but what I’ve noticed is that all the cafes I’ve been to in Tasmania didn’t serve Bonsoy.
Mr.K had his Mocha ($3.8).
First to arrive was the pork, apple and sage sausage roll ($7.8). All pastries were served with housemade relish and a side salad. This is the biggest sausage roll I’ve ever seen – it was massive! It looked amazing, although I was disappointed with the taste. It was dry and lacked flavour. The tomato relish was also too acidic and watery.
Chorizo, gruyere and caramelised onion wrapped in pastry ($7.8). I liked this pastry, it was simple with great bold flavours.
Lamb and rosemary pie ($7.8). The lamb was tender, cooked perfectly and had a great hearty aroma.
We were about to leave, but we couldn’t resist trying a sweet pastry so we ordered a small peach with white chocolate tart ($4). This was the cherry on top. It was sweet, smooth and had a beautiful sweet pastry base.
