Brewbakers is my revered local artisan bakery with a suitably rustic cafe attached. I almost dont want to throw too much praise their way in case it gets any busier than it already is. Years spent in Melbourne, Australia's southern city with its dedicated artisan bakers, has made it compulsary for me to discover who's turning out good sourdough, not to forget organic bread too & some Gluten free sweet treats!
Seriously good bread is on the menu here...and watch out...cheeky staff abound! There's plenty to tempt...think chocolate bagels....or Brewbaker's take on a Reuben sandwich!
Even better...it's in walking distance of my home, has great coffee and breakfasts from 6am (OK...not my best time!) It closes by 2pm most days - the shelves are pretty sad by then - so you've got to be quick! If there's a queue I warned you...OK?
And if you really must know where it is... head to the north side of the Brisbane River, in the central hub of Albion on busy Sandgate Rd, set back a little from the road though...with a car park in front.
( ps Richard and Caroline, I hope you like my artistic photo of the very cool retro cutlery...)
