The Verdict

After a fire paused operations in mid 2023, Penny Fours bakery is back in Balmain, with the same sweet treats for which they’ve always been known and loved.

Run by a pastry chef who lists Tetsuya’s, Sepia and Iggy’s Bread among her past roles, Penny Fours nails a textbook croissant, crusty loaves of bread (with flavoured combos like olive and thyme to spice up your sandwiches), and sweets like lemon meringues, salted macadamia tarts, and sticky brioche buns.

Savouries are also represented—we’re eyeing off a broccoli, bacon and cheese danish—and, of course, there’ll be special items slung almost daily, like strawberry shortcake croissants, Margherita danishes, and seasonal specials too.
