Chris The’s Black Star Pastry located in Newtown is a #jugfav and a local hotspot in the suburb of Newtown. Renowned for their Watermelon Cake, the very tiny BSP1 in Newtown pretty much has a constant queue all day and that cake sells out most days by about 3-4pm. So, with this level of success its surprising it took Chris this long to open BSP2 but here it is. Its a warehouse joint located in Rosebery. You’re gonna need a car to get here. Designed by Smith and Carmody (them of Excelsior Jones, Cornersmith and Brickfields), BSP2 is a spacious food+sweets lover haven.
We dropped in at 1.30pm and the Hot Food’s gone. Wished we had gotten some of their amazing pies.
Menu and rather extensive pastry counter. Most pics don’t quite convey the “look of the counter” but its copper clad. A glance at what’s on the menu. Breads, Coffee, Drinks, Pies, Quiche, Sandwiches, Specials.
Its still awesome. Dining Companion never had it (go figure) and was suitably wowed.
Black Star Pastry Rosebery will introduce Black Star Pastry to a lot of new soon to be fans in its new location. Its shiny, new and you won’t be eyeing a seat like a hawk – and people who frequent Newtown will know its a destination eat with people travelling across Sydney to eat there. Space and the abundance of it (seats and eats), easy enough parking is BSP2’s calling card. Its all lovely and filled with natural light. And of course, those woodfired artisanal breads. Visit at
