Staying at near The Rocks made a breakfast excursion there super simple and we settled at Baroque at the end of George Street without a second glance.
Baroque is a bistro and patisserie so we left with a selection of macarons that delighted those back in Brisbane and were a welcome after dinner treat. They are handmade on-site in an open plan pastry kitchen and priced at $2.50 each, with boxes of 4, 6, 12, 24 or more available to take away. Our fav flavours were salted caramel, rose water and passionfruit chocolate. You can spend a day in their patisserie kitchen, learning the recipes, tips and techniques from the creators of Baroque’s macarons - Pierre Gobert and Jean Michel Raynaud.
The Baroque menu includes classic French bistro dishes. Our choices were Porcini eggs en cocotte with toasted baguette ($15) (above) , granola, yoghurt, fresh fruit ($12) and Croque Monsieur ($13).
The coffee here was particularly good and we ended up having several cups.
Bottom line: Great breakfast option at The Rocks and don't forget the macarons!
