Hello Brasserie Bread, we truly love you. We woke up this morning thinking to ourselves that sourdough pancakes with stewed berries and honeycomb cream would really hit the spot, and so jumped out of bed, got dressed and braced ourselves for the Saturday traffic and almost hour long drive to Banksmeadow...all to just taste the delights of this wonderful artisan bakery. Located within quite an industrial area within the city of Sydney, this bakery is a standout, not only in it's class of dedication to artisan baking, but also as a cafe with treats you certainly want to shout out about.
I personally adore the industrial element they have brought within their premises, and the raw ingredients they sell in canvas sacks amongst the stellar bread and pastries.
When we arrived and started to look through their chalkboard menu, a sweet waitress ran up to Bobby and advised that they had run out of sourdough pancakes. My heart sank. Whilst I slumped into a seat and tried to not show my disappointment too much, Bobby chatted with the waitress, slipping in that we drove an hour to get there, with the sole purpose of satisfying our sourdough pancake cravings. Sweet girl went back into the kitchen and checked for us, and managed to scrape together the final remnants of dough left, and conjured up the final plate of sourdough pancakes, just for me. Utterly delightful! Customer service at its best, and outstanding food. Who could ask for more?!
