Easter-themed Treats

Your Easter holidays should definitely include holiday staples like easter eggs, hot cross buns and delicious chocolate. Here’s where you can find the best of it in The Rocks

Hot cross scones at the Tea Cosy

Made with a mix of dried fruits, spices, and brown sugar, these delicious, bready snacks are then topped with a fig and cinnamon jam and cream and a warming chai tea. A warning - these will sell out so get in quick!

Hot Cross Buns at La Renaissance Cafe

The home of Sydney’s best pastries is getting into the Easter spirit! They are freshly baking soft, fluffy brioche hot cross with a hint of traditional spice fresh each morning. 

Handmade Chocolates at Emporium of Chocolate

The Emporium of Chocolate handmakes decadent, gourmet chocolates that are guaranteed to blow your mind. Our favourites are the Nutella and dulce de leche. Grab a box of 12 or 24 to share with family over the long weekend or scoff them all yourself - we won’t judge. Find them in The Rocks Square and at The Rocks Markets! 

Hot Cross Buns at Starbucks

Starbucks are back with their mouth-watering Hot Cross Buns! These pastries are even fluffier than the Easter Bunny. Each bun is baked to perfection, infused with aromatic cinnamon and juicy currants, and finished with a signature cross on top. The perfect accompaniment to your favourite coffee or tea.
