The Bread Kitchen

Debra, a stay-at-home mum of three, loves experiencing and sharing all that Brisbane has to offer; especially southside secrets.
Published October 26th 2011
On a quiet suburban street, just down from the Holland Park Library, there is a little row of shops. There's the usual: a convenience store, a hair salon, a post office and a newsagent. This is where we stumbled upon The Bread Kitchen, nestled between the post office and the newsagent. This unassuming cafe, the pride and joy to a mother of three, has only been open a few months. It looks, smells and feels brand new; clean, fresh and welcoming. The Bread Kitchen is actually many things: cafe, bakery, and take-away.
The Bread Kitchen
Open for breakfast and lunch, TBK dishes up quite an eclectic menu of pancakes, pizzas, soups, sandwiches, and burgers. They cater for everyone including vegetarians and celiacs (gluten intolerant). Some of their wholesome healthy options include fruit and muesli layered parfaits with honey and organic Greek yoghurt or fruit salad in vanilla, ginger and lemongrass syrup.
As a bakery, it sells delectable desserts, fresh baked bread, sausage rolls, and pies (including gluten-free and vegan). Everything is baked on site. They also take orders for birthday cakes from a simple sponge with mock cream and jam filling to gluten-free or diabetic cakes.

If you don't have time to sit at one of the few tables scattered inside or outside, you can order one of their gourmet burgers or sandwiches for take-away. The TBK House Burger made with a homemade beef patty, fresh salad, caramelised onion, sweet chilli sauce, melted gruyre cheese on a freshly baked bun sounds tantalising, as does the Baked Haloumi Sandwich with roasted vegetables and spinach on sourdough
bread. I think TBK's strength lies in its coffee though. My latte was one of the best I have ever had. They use fresh organic roasted beans (ground when the customer orders) and Barambah Organics milk. Although not on the menu, they also sell babycinos which come in a miniature ceramic cup with a tiny decorated gingerbread biscuit on the saucer. My two year old daughter, used to the disposable cup of milk froth from Gloria Jeans, felt extremely special with her 'big girl' cuppa.

A cup of coffee costs $3.50 while a mug is $4.00. A babycino with biscuit is $1.50. A loaf of freshly baked bread is $4.
