The love of artisan bread is strong in Sydney, with heavyweights such as Sonoma, Iggy’s and Luxe all too familiar to Saturday morning shoppers. But there’s another cult classic known among the purists: Infinity Bakery.
The ethos of serving only the very best sourdough all started when baker Philip Searle’s worked a stint in France many moons ago. Over the years, his vision and knowledge has been passed onto many others who’ve come through the bakery doors, including current owners William and Sophie Petersen.
Each store offers close to a dozen different sourdoughs, as well as traditional loaves, sandwiches, pies, brownies, cookies, cakes, soup du jour and excellent coffee.
With premises in Paddington, Darlinghurst and Manly, Infinity has also in recent years, worked its floured goods into many a cafe and restaurant around the city as well.
