The Best Restaurant Bread in Sydney Because Bread is Life

Love niche content? Enjoy this edit of the best restaurant bread in Sydney.


When it comes to bread, we lose all decorum. There's no 'oh you take it' when it gets to the last slice. We dive right in. It's often the all-important first taste of a restaurant and it's a ritual we think is best respected. Good bread is a refined art, one that shouldn't be overlooked. 

If, like us, you value this fine art, we entreat you to read on and tick off this edit of the best restaurant bread in Sydney...

Bar Morris

Bar Morris 

The spelt panfocaccia with Parmigiano and garlic butter from Bar Morris presents a spiritual encounter. Chef Rosie personally oversees continual kneading across a five-hour period making it a labour of love. You wouldn't know it from the v. affordable $7 price tag though! Exercise your self control and try to save some to mop up the delish pasta sauce or, better yet, order an extra portion. 

412 Pitt Street, Haymarket 



Grana's crescenza foccacia di recco may not mean much to you at first (unless you speak Italian), but we promise after one bite, it will nestle its way into your heart and soul where it belongs. Thin layers of olive oil bread are combined with stracchino cheese and the result is incredible. We guarantee not a morsel will remain. 

5-7 Young Street, Sydney



Yes, we know. Naturally, you'll be carb-loading at Totti's with pizza a given. But if you know what's good for you, you'll save a little room for bread. Dining at Totti's without ordering their iconic puffy woodfired bread is a criminal act. Grab a few antipasti to go with. 

Locations across Sydney



With so much delicious food to hoover up at Ester, it may seem counterintuitive to sacrifice tummy space for bread but it's part of the experience so we consider it essential. Plus, shoutout to the incred toppings. The fermented potato bread is what you're looking out for and it comes topped with salmon roe and kefir cream - an elite combination.

Surry Hills' Japanese fusion izakaya Itō does everything well and the experience kicks off straight from the bread. The shio kombu bread with cultured butter will be devoured in minutes so be sure to order a second helping to pair with tasty morsels from the main course. 

413-415 Crown Street, Surry Hills 



As a rule, we've tried to keep garlic bread out of this edit as it truly is a category of its own, but Frenchies confit garlic and parsley bread simply must have a spot. It may add 5 points to your cholesterol but we're calling it worth it. 

Unit 4 61-71 Mentmore Avenue, Roseberry
