Australian Bakery Opens on Amsterdam Ave

  Last modified on January 20th, 2022

Bourke Street Bakery has opened its doors at 313 Amsterdam Avenue, between 74th and 75th streets – previously occupied by Piccolo Cafe. The new spot welcomed its first guests on Monday at 8am.

Piccolo Cafe first opened its doors in 2010, becoming a popular go-to spot for all day consumption – from morning espressos to evening cocktails and pasta plates. In 2017, Piccolo Cafe’s owners – Michele Casadei Massari, Alberto Ghezzi and Gianluca Capozzi – opened Lucciola, an Italian restaurant still running at 621 Amsterdam Ave at 90th Street.

Bourke Street Bakery describes itself as “Australia’s most beloved artisanal bakery-cafe.” Its original NYC location, at 15 East 28th Street, opened in 2019, and has since made Eater’s list of “15 Essential New York Bakeries” for its “rustic sourdough and pastries” as well as its “peanut butter-and-jelly croissants, shakshuka danishes, and its popular sausage roll.” The press section on Bourke Street’s website is pretty extensive, and the bakery has developed an impressive social following.
