If you like baguette, you must come to Taste Baguette café because they baked their own bread onsite every 15 mins! Hieu who is the chef and owner of Taste Baguette café has been a baker and pastry chef since he was the age of 13. Hieu’s vision was to open a bakery/cafe where bread & pastries would be baked regularly throughout the day. With this vision, Taste Bakery & Restaurant in Surry Hills was born, where hand crafted baguettes were baked every 15 minutes for lunch and filled with freshly grilled meats & salads. This French-Vietnamese influenced café is so popular that it has spread last few years and can now be found in various places such as in Sydney uni, Surry hills, Sussex lane, World square, Market street and met centre.

taste 8

Classic Vietnameses – Pork, pate with pickled carrot and radish, cucumber, spring onion, coriander and soy dressing. (Chilli optional) $8.50

If you are someone who is indecisive, you’ll be having a hard time picking over 10 baguettes in their menu. I have opted for the Vietnamese classic because It is something that I am familiar with and will sometimes ordered in a Vietnamese suburb such as Cabramatta or Marrickville. The baguette was light and crunchy with just enough of salad to balance out the meat and dressing.

taste 9

Chicken Schnitzel, $8.90

Herb crumbed crispy goujons served with coral lettuce, tomato, rocket, and honey mustard mayonnaise.

The chicken schnitzel was smaller than expected with more salad then meat, the taste however was very good and doesn’t give me the oily feeling which other chicken schnitzel does.

taste 3

Mini Almond and cheese croissant, $3.50

These mini almond and cheese croissant will make a good snack for the afternoon tea, it is buttery and crunchy on the outside and meltingly soft on the inside.

taste 4

Fig and fruits tart, $3.50

The tart was very light and not very sweet, if you like plain and simple dessert. You will love this fruit tart.

taste 2

Brownie, $3.50

After trying a few of their dessert and cakes, I realise everything in Taste are very light and healthy. They do not put a lot of sugar or artificial stuff in their foods. Brownie in here wasn’t my kind of sweet because it was too bland and dry.

taste 5



Pork and fennel chipolatas w/ caramelised red onion marmalade baguette, $9.50

Breakfast menu from Taste were fantastic, the idea of having your breakfast in a freshly bake baguette was interesting. The pork and fennel chipolatas was by popular demand and the next customer after me who ordered this was already sold out. It was flavoursome and juicy.



Poached egg w/ crispy bacon, spinach and hollandaise sauce baguette, $9.50

The more standard poach egg and bacon was excellent, the fluffy bread absorb all the hollandaise sauce and when I broke the egg, the yolk was so gooey and delicious.

Conclusion: The food is great especially the French baguettes and pastries. Service seems to be luck of the draw and this place doesn’t take booking so meaning be there before 12.30 or long queues.

    The baguettes look good! With plenty of salad is the way I like them. The fruit tart looks amazing.

    Lemongrass beef is to die for! Once upon a time I had a weekly taste baguette addiction. I think the Surry Hills taste is much better for eating in, though.
