SON OF A BAKER | SAN SOUCI, SYDNEY | SUMMER 2018 | BY INVITATION
SON OF A BAKER is really no ordinary cafe. Roman Urosevski, whose father owns ALEXANDER BAKERY, and his decision to break away from the family business was a risky one, but teaming up with Marcus Gorgè of LOCAL MBASSEY and CHIMICHIRI, it is one that certainly paid off.

This will be my second visit to Son of a Baker. The first visit I was drawn in by a Ruby Poached Pear, something similar to what Marcus had done at Chimichurri; today, it is Watermelon and Feta Salad.
But first, let’s see what else is on the menu.
Avocado Specialty Smoothie with almonds, banana, honey, ice and almond milk.
An incredibly creamy and dense smoothie full of everything you want and nothing you don’t. Perfect for a light liquid snack in between meals, and you can even add protein for added benefits. A great idea catering for the healthy and exercise conscientious locals.
Gaytime Thickshake with chocolate, salted caramel, ice-cream, milk and crumble.
Because who doesn’t love a good ol’ Gaytime?
The Gaytime is probably my favourite childhood ice-cream block quickly followed by the Cornetto and Magnum. I loved the Gaytime because they were inexpensive yet had the most unbelievably crumbly melt-in-your-mouth textures. SON OF A BAKER have captured this perfectly, and with an actual Gaytime on top, it takes the cake.
Watermelon and Feta Salad - with seasonal berries, baby mint leaves, and orange infused olive oil dressing.
The salad that made me take that hour long bus ride to San Souci; this and the other dishes combined was definitely worthy of my time.
It is funny as a child/teen to think watermelon in a savoury dish would taste so delicious, and I don’t want to seem old but having an matured flavour palette is probably the most rewarding thing about being an adult.
Fried Chicken and Waffles - in house made waffles, crispy fried chicken and served with 100% Canadian maple syrup
And yet I can still have fun with my food.
Nothing beats house-made waffles; these were soft, crispy, and flavours far from complex than store-bought.
The chicken, though looks dry from first impression actually is very juicy and tender.
The Canadian with halloumi, hash brown, thick cut maple bacon sandwiched between a freshly baked croissant and Poached eggs
I don’t think I have to say much, if anything about this piece of heaven, except put your hands together for Roman and Marcus for putting Halloumi and Hash brown in a Bacon & Egg Croissant. Bravo my men!
Red Velvet Pancakes - Signature dish; with mascarpone, seasonal berries, chocolate dust, macadamia crumble, vanilla ice-cream, callebaut white chocolate sauce.
No wonder this is the SON OF A BAKER signature. It’s not only a beautiful work of art, it’s a texture masterpiece. It is a stunner even down to the white chocolate sauce pour - as if it was meant to be pour in such a way.
Red Velvet Pannacotta (comes with a Latte) with Chocolate dust, mascarpone and seasonal berries.
I came for the Watermelon and Feta salad, but I stayed for the Pannacotta.
Could be the upcoming signature by SON OF A BAKER.
Incredibly smooth, super generous portion, such a dreamy dish that is so far unrivaled.
I am so excited to see what is coming next…

Exceptional menu that is Instagrammable too.
Beautiful staff, from the inside and out.
Not really an improvement, but the restrooms are across the street, which is a bit annoying, but honestly not the end of the world!
