Bread & Circus

Tucked away amongst the For Lease signs, industrial yards and hustle and bustle of trucks, Bread and Circus brings along delicious super foods in their rustic warehouse canteen. Stripy deck chairs, beams of natural light and plenty of scattered pots of herbs and vegetables.

The menu changes daily, but be sure to bump in early if you want dibs on certain dishes as sometimes I’ve been one step too late with hot favourites being scribbled off the menu. Your vegetarian friends will love you for bringing them here but for those who need a little more, there’s always a protein option add on.

The best option is to grab a plate of everything. Today’s salad delights were a mix of fried snake beans, roast zucchini, pear with couscous, potatoes and a smokey nutmeg eggplant. I love the diversity of flavours and Bread & Circus sure makes salads sexy again.

Honourable mentions go out to the snake beans with a jalapeno coriander kick, the amazing baked pear; sweet and indulgent but balanced with couscous goodness. Not much of a fan of eggplant in general, but my foodie companion scoffed them down a treat.

If salads don’t tickle your fancy, there’s plenty of canteen styled sandwich boxes with plenty of meat, sauces, salad and generous slices of fresh sourdough bread.

Amongst the sandwich boxes, you’d need to pull me in a tug-a-war to decide on a favourite. Whatever protein you’re feeling, there’s bound to be a box that best suits you. The salami brings along a feisty little kick, the smoked ham is thick and generous with a sinus clearing mustard, whereas the chicken is teamed with a beautiful basil oil and thyme yoghurt.

There’s also a list of fresh juices and pipping hot teas. I picked one of the most usual ones of the list, a roasted brown rice and popcorn green tea. It smells amazing but definitely for those who enjoy wild teas.

And if all the superfoods are making you feel really angelic, there’s a few sweets on the counter that’s up for grabs. Feeling cheeky, we grab a huuuge (size of our plate..) cookie with generous portions of chocolate chips and nuts. Oh boy…

Bread & Circus

Perfect spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch – and being very child (little tables and chairs!) and dog friendly; Bread & Circus definitely helps promote healthy food for a clear mind and body!

And if you’re wondering where the coffee aroma is lingering from… don’t forget to check out Don Campos who are at the front of the warehouse. They also offer a few more tasty pastry morsels for the hungry.
