We’ve been wanting to try Egyptian bakery, Pioik for a while now. Positive word of mouth as well as sampling things in other cafes led us to making a trip to Pyrmont.
The store is quite small, located on Harris Street in Pyrmont. The front counter showcases the goodies on sale but you can also see the bakery production behind.
We scan the display case and note an array of treats from almond croissants to snails and some savoury goodies too such as the Pioik egg sandwich. We purchase the Pioik scrambled egg foccacia, which despite being $15!!! (For a small bread), was certainly extremely tasty. Crispy bread topped with a tomato sauce cheese and a dollop of scrambled egg on each piece.
They have a great range of breads, though they are outrageously expensive at $25 for the 2kg Eporo, 16 for a loaf of Etyoo (5 grains), Kemo (Rye and Caraway) or Foccacia to name a few. You may wish to only but half a loaf or a small baguette to save your pennies.
That said it’s worth a trip, for it is delicious.
Be sure to check opening hours, for it only opens Thurs – Sunday, 7am-11am
176-178 Harris St
