Silo Bakery: Sandwich and Pastry, Kingston, Canberra (2 Oct 2009)

36 Giles Street, Kingston ACT 2604

Loving the bread and cakes

I think if I lived in Canberra I would be tempted to visit this place at least once a week if not more. I've now been 2 days in a row and today is for a quick lunch takeaway before heading off to a friends wedding up at Hall. I grab one of the Roast Beef Sandwiches (unfortunately not many choices left) which looks rather thin and plain and my expectations are that it'll be very dry. I was very surprised to discover the bread was actually very tasty and moist and ended up being quite a nice sandwich. The Rhubarb Danish was excellent — beautifully flaky pastry complimented with moist rhubarb and custard — I've yet to find anything of similar quality in Sydney.
