Delicious Wholefoods Cafe in Alexandria
There are just so many cafes in Sydney! There is so much to do and so much to see that it is impossible to see and do it all. Yet you still want to, don't you? You hear about that new place "YOU MUST TRY!!" and then you get total #FOMO right? Are you with me, or are you sitting there reading this thinking "What is this Gen Y fool on about?" Well as a self-confessed foodie, I can tell you I want to try as much in Sydney as I can.
Then again sometimes you just want to go with what you know. There is nothing worse than waiting in a long line, only to be seated on a crowded table, served by horrible waitstaff for an over-priced and average meal. These are the times you wish you had just gone straight to one of your favourites.
For me, that is Bread and Circus Wholefoods Canteen. Bread and Circus is one of the first cafes I found when I moved to Sydney a year ago. When I first stumbled across this cafe I was in complete awe. I thought "YES! THIS is why I moved to Sydney".
Bread and Circus focus on providing healthy meals that are also quite hearty and won't leave you hungry at the end of it. With a menu that changes daily, the meals are created around fresh seasonal produce (and it shows).
The menu is fairly large, providing a range of meals from muesli, fruit plates, and scrambled eggs for breakfast to salad plates, soups and sandwich boxes for lunch. The drink menu is also quite comprehensive, with a large list of teas, hot drinks and juices.
I have been here several times and am yet to be disappointed. One downside to this cafe being so tasty is it is also quite popular, which means you will more than likely be waiting for a seat most weekends.
