Breakfast at Grumpy Baker, Darlinghurst

I love the name of this café, Grumpy Baker. It suits me to a tea! Whenever I am hungry, I tend to be grumpy and well, when I am grumpy I like to bake! However, that’s not how the name of the cafe came about. As the website says, ‘And as for the name…….well you would be grumpy too if you had to get up at the crack of dawn every day!’ and well, I have to agree!

The Grumpy Baker was created in 2002 by Michael Cthurmer, Owner-operator as a Café / Retail Bakery on Oxford Street, Darlinghurst. It’s not a very big café, quite cozy and very friendly.

I was having my weekly catch up with B, and she suggested this place. We have both walked pass this place many times, and I have actually purchased loaves of bread from the Grumpy Baker. I have been here for breakfast, with S, but that was like 2 years ago and don’t remember what it was like. Unfortunately, the kitchen doesn’t open until 8 am, even though, the doors are open before 7 am and coffee are served. They do have a couple of breakfast dish on the menu that was available, mainly toasts, and muesli, which suited us both fine.

We both love coffee and don’t really function without that first cup of the day.

We both opted for the same thing, homemade granola, served with vanilla bean yogurt, rhubarb and honey. The homemade granola was toasted, crunchy and absolutely delicious. The vanilla bean yogurt was deliciously rich and creamy but not sickening, and the rhubarb was a great compliment. I love rhubarb, I would have been happy with just the vanilla bean yogurt and rhubarb! Hmhmhm now there’s a thought!

Here’s a close up of the homemade toasted granola: oats, macadamia nuts, Brazilian nuts, different types of seeds, sultanas, apricots and many more. We both enjoyed and demolished it. It was tasty!

The Grumpy Baker is not just a café, they also do sell fresh bread! They have two other locations in Sydney, Leichhardt and Waverton, and have a range of breads sold at numerous retail outlets throughout Sydney.

You can never have enough bakeries around your area! Who doesn’t love bread right?

As always, breakfast with B is the perfect way to start the week! It’s always great to bounce ideas with her!
