Bread and Circus definitely ticks all the boxes - it is vibrant and has a casual, fun vibe. The food is fresh and wholesome. I'm a huge fan of the daily salads, and since Arthur Street Kitchen is no longer, I find myself hankering after a really well done salad. Bread and Circus happily fulfils the craving!
Located in a lovely sun-filled warehouse space in Alexandria, Bread & Circus is decorated with colourful decor and crates of fruit and vegetables everywhere. On a weekend lunchtime visit, the place is quite busy but we manage to squeeze onto a share table within a few minutes of waiting.
Perfect for a warm day, though a tad on the bland side due to the ice.
A refreshing cold pressed juice with mix of kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, apple and lemon.
Goats corn pumpkin biodynamic egg frittata
This was amazing. The frittata was so flavoursome with the dollops of goats cheese throughout, along with corn, pumpkin, kale, caramelised red onion, plus thyme and basil. Even better were the daily salads served on the side including:
Roast baby carrot, zucchini, wild rocket & feta
Lemony broccolini cabbage flower stem & farro
Charred yellow bean & crunchy cavalo nero
Fresh cabbage kale & two kind of sprout
Smoky corn, wild rocket leaves, lime & mayo
Seasonal fruit plate
Seasonal fresh fruit with biodynamic yoghurt and a drizzle of agave syrup. A lovely sweet way to end the meal. The fruit included blood orange, peach, pears, mango, strawberries and kiwi fruit.
We ordered the frittata and fruit plate to share between two, and it was perfect portion-wise.
Verdict? A great space with food that's fresh, healthy and wholesome. What's not to love?
