Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen - Alexandria, Sydney

Bread and Circus definitely ticks all the boxes - it is vibrant and has a casual and fun vibe, plus 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. During a weekend lunchtime visit, the place was quite busy but we manage to squeeze onto a share table within a few minutes of waiting.

Iced coffee

Perfect for a warm day, though a tad on the bland side due to the ice. 

Macchiato 

Something green 

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 kinds 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?
