After a few positive write ups in the newspaper and via some prominent blogs, Flour shop amassed a huge following, so much so that there’s huge line ups each morning and they sell out pretty fast.
In a small neighbourhood in Turramurra, not too far from the Pacific Highway, you’ll find Flour shop next to an organic grocer and a few other small shops.
With the social distancing measures in place, you line up outside and 2 people enter the shop at once. We like that the bench top showcases their offerings so you can make your decision without having to ask a million questions.
As you creep to the front of the queue, you can see the busy open kitchen behind with the staff working the dough. So busy, the shop produces a wide range of bakery goods.
The Jersusalem Bagels are a winner. The bread is delicious, super light and topped with plenty of seeds, reminding me of those I tried in Israel. We enjoy the chorizo and egg version, but there is also a jalepeno and cheese option on our day of visit.
We were recommended to get a caramel croissant, a small crunchy, sweet and sticky morsel that had the buttery crispy flaked pastry doused in a caramel sauce, making it super crunchy. We hear this is their most popular item and can certainly understand why.
Whilst Kurt claims he’s not normally a fan of a cinnamon scroll, this one he absolutely demolished and loved it. Light and fluffy bread and filled with cinnamon sugar. If you want a bit less sweetness, even their dinner roll is good.
We like that this shop is zero waste, using whatever ingredients they have to prepare a menu. If you check out IG before your visit, you can see a lovely little handwritten menu of what’s on offer. It might be a plain croissant, chocolate cookies, raisin snail, bread and butter croissants and interesting pie flavours. This weekend it was broccoli and mustard.
There is a barista serving up Single 0 Coffee, though we recommend skipping the coffee and going straight for the baked goods. Our tip is to check out the IG as to what you want and get there early. Cinnamon scrolls are a must.
