The food

Larger than the flagship bakery on Harbord, this new location offers a whole new menu of sit-down meals, including all-day-every-day brunch, sandwiches and shareable snacks like onion rings and chicken fingers. Gluten-free brunch grub includes loaded breakfast bagels, pancakes with blueberry compote and French toast topped with lavender-infused ricotta cheese. And of course, there are still a whole bunch of baked goods, like cupcakes, doughnuts and cinnamon buns.

The drinks

The cocktail menu features a few signature sips, as well as a couple different kinds of mimosas. Like everything else on the menu, all of the cocktails are gluten-free and made with gin or potato vodka. There’s also gluten-free Glutenberg beer, plus Brickworks Batch 1904 cider, which is naturally gluten-free. Non-boozy beverages include Social Coffee Co. drinks made with a choice of plant-based milks, freshly squeezed or cold-pressed juices, and tea lattes in unique flavours like apple crumble and beetroot.

There’s plenty of sit-down dining space, including a large common table. The sunny room is decorated with pastel hues, plants and plenty of hanging lights.
