This place has been on my 'hit list' for some time now. I am so glad to have finally found the opportunity to check it out! I met DD here for coffee and cake one morning and eventually came back in the afternoon (on my way home) to get the very famous Strawberry and watermelon cake. That was eventually my dessert that evening!
Black Star Pastry is such a hip place. It is always full and in peak hours, the queue to order can be quite long. I can see that the queues are not putting anyone off. Everyone is willing to wait patiently. My guess is the regulars know how good this place is!
For my morning tea, I had the Orange cake with Persian fig and quince. Yummy! Moist and truly delicious! On top of that, very pretty to look at. DD had the Frangipane tart. Apparently this is his favourite tart.

For my evening dessert, I had the mouth watering Strawberry and watermelon cake. I was initially skeptical on how good this cake would taste. But my skepticism was blown out of the window. What a fantastic cake!!!!!! The burst of flavours just made every mouthful so wonderful...can I wax enough lyrical about this?!?!

The slices of fresh watermelon, pistachio and fragrant rose petals make this cake unique and utterly delicious. It is fresh, light and fragrant. I think I have said enough about this cake. You should try it and see if I am exaggerating about it.
Christopher The is a truly gifted pattisier. Wow! No wonder Black Star Pastry has been rated as one of the Top 10 Pastry Shops in Sydney.
