Squeak and I were making the trek to Croquembouche at Banksmeadow to order some Christmas treats so we thought we'd pop into Brasserie Bread for a shot at breakfast. Whenever Squeak and I think of the name 'Brasserie Bread' memories come flooding back of the first ever time (many, many moons ago) we tasted the sinfully warm caramelised garlic bread with melted parsley butter poured over the top - courtesy of Danks Street Depot. Anyone who can concoct such a bread really does deserve a visit. Squeak and I had dropped in (and 'dropped in' is a euphemism for driving significantly out of our way to a rather industrial part of Banksmeadow) some time ago, but were not overly fussed by the variety of options on the cafe menu. This second visit proved more fruitful.
The menu is, without doubt, small in scope, however the options are on the more unusual end of the spectrum for breakfast fare, which is something that Squeak and I do look for in a cafe. Squeak decided to order the Florentine Panini, and I was a little surprised, as bread is not usually something she likes to eat - however, I guess we were sitting in an Artisan bakery... so it makes sense. I ordered the Slow cooked pork and sweet potato hash with egg.

Brasserie Bread also has a patisserie area to the side of the cafe that offers many tempting baked goods to pick up on your way out, and they also offer a variety of cooking classes throughout the year for kids and adults alike. The website conveniently offers an online ordering service that allows you to order goods from home to simply pick up instore.
