Whether you want a little sweet treat for yourself or an impressive showstopper for a wedding, birthday party or baby shower, there’s no shortage of delicious cakes in this city. From traditional English and French favourites to Asian inspired chiffons, there’s a lot to love about these desserts.

With a cult following, this bakery and cafe in Chippendale is renowned for its chiffon-soft Persian love cakes (available as single slices) and syrupy caramel chocolate cakes. The cakes are all made from scratch, using organic, low-sugar and dairy-free ingredients. They are gluten-, nut- and vegan-free too. This small business also supplies some of Sydney’s top cafes with their bread, scones and croissants.

Flour and Stone is the only Sydney cake shop with a focus on local produce, working with growers and producers like Pepe Saya butter, Kristen Allan cheese, Country Valley milk, Sample coffee and Rabbit Hole tea. Their tiered fluffy sponges, old-fashioned cakes and decadent show stoppers, like their Valrhona Manjari chocolate cake with gold leaf, make them one of the best bakeries in Sydney. They have an eat-in cafe and a takeaway store with delivery service, plus they cater to all dietary requirements online.

You’ll find this iconic bakery in the heart of the CBD and they specialise in bespoke celebration cakes, but you’ll also find classic English and French favourites. The pannacotta-soaked lamingtons are baked goods royalty and you can’t go past the strawberry or flourless chocolate cakes, too.

If you’re after a little something sweet, the strawberry and watermelon tarts are some of the most delicious treats you can buy in Sydney. The chiffons aren’t to be missed either, especially their black sesame and raspberry lychee varieties.

This boutique cake shop in Woolloomooloo is a family-run business with a Sri Lankan heritage. Their menu is exotic and colourful, offering both Sri Lankan classics such as the Kimbula Kithul Hoppers with caramelised coconut ice cream and their famous clove-spiced love cake, and modern takes on old-fashioned favourites.

It’s easy to get caught up on their dazzling floral-topped cakes (which you can order in advance for special occasions), but don’t overlook their ethereally light and delicate pastries, including the layered rose water and lychee chiffon.

This thriving bakery in Surry Hills is a must for lovers of Italian dessert culture. Salvatore Papa is known for his baked ricotta cake, but it’s the whole range of pies and cakes that really makes this place stand out. It’s worth calling ahead to secure a table if you want a seat and the opportunity to try a few of their other creations, including the cannoli tower and cake and the croquembouche. Cakes Sydney
