Want to run away and join the circus? Think again, there’s a circus right at your back door in the form of Sydney cafe, Bread and Circus Wholefoods Canteen in Alexandria and trust me it’s a circus you’ll want to be a part of!Nestled in the heart of Alexandria, this quirky cafe is a real foodie find and with its industrial feel and updated daily menu, you’re spoilt for choice with healthy options galore and an abundance of sweet and savoury delights. I ventured there on a Wednesday and with a mothers group on one side and some hipsters on the left I could tell this was a place for all sorts.
I began with my usual skim latte with one sugar whilst I sifted through the menu. A menu that is updated daily and boasts some of the dreamiest and most decadent descriptions I’ve ever come across on a breakfast menu, including my personal fave ‘breakfast with Gwyneth’ a tribute to the cookbook creator and her love of all things organic and healthy. I was in the mood for savoury (so I could turn my brunch into lunch) and went with the parmesan not-so-scrambled eggs w/ bullet chilli, shaved parmesan and served w/ avocado, tomato, baby spinach, fresh herbs and sourdough.
It was just what I wanted and fulfilled the rather large void that was my raging appetite! Alexandria is fast becoming a suburb to be reckoned with and as it’s growth in posh nosh eateries expands more people from the east start trickling down to check out what’s new. So why don’t you?
