193-195 Pitt Street Mall, Sydney NSW 2000
Having only opened about 2 weeks ago this second store of Sweet Infinity is already becoming very popular. Sadly though it's replaced the equally popular The Olive Italian Food Bar which made excellent sandwiches — if anyone finds out where they have gone please let me know as I loved their fried zucchini! Sweet Infinity's original bakery shop at 53 Riley Street Woolloomooloo is still there but I'm glad there's now one closer in the city to pick up some afternoon sugar treats. A poster inside notifies customers they'll be closed from 15 June till 6 July for renovations so watch out for a brand new look — there's some proposed interior designs on the store wall to check out.
If you're in need of a decent sugar hit then grab yourself a smooth tasting Brownie ($4) which has great depth in chocolate flavour. The larger sized Lemon Meringue Tart ($7) and Fruit Tart ($7) have beautifully thin pastry which goes well with the toppings. I couldn't resist trying the figs in the fruit tart which looked so good. The lemon meringue had a nice crunchy shell. It looks like Central Baking Depot and Bacco Pasticceria have some new competition in town but the more choices the better I say.
