Caramelised Lemony Banana Pancakes – banana, ricotta and biodynamic egg flourless pancake with maple syrup, lemon compound butter, caramelised banana and a strawberry basil salad ($19)
Bread and Circus is located across the road from Dan Murphy’s in the ever booming suburb of Alexandria. A wholefoods canteen offering organic, seasonal and biodynamic dishes. The menu here changes daily and you wont be disappointed by the selection. This vibrant café is set within a large, airy, open warehouse that houses other foodie venues including the Dona Campos café and the Rosetta Stone Artisan Bakery.
As you should be well aware by now, I love my pancakes and even though these pancakes do not contain flour, I needed to try them. These were light and fluffy and served with a generous scooping of ricotta cheese, fresh juicy strawberries and crunchy caramelised banana.
Parmesan not-so-scrambled eggs with real truffle oil, sourdough bread, tomato, baby spinach, avocado, herbs and parmesan flakes ($20)
The eggs were fluffy and the sourdough bread was lightly toasted. Pile on your eggs, spinach and avocado and you’re in business. The inside of the café is filled to the brim with fresh fruit, vegetables, planters and herbs which grow among the kitchen supplies, on the counters and around the tables and chairs. To the left is an outdoor courtyard with comfy banana chairs to rest in and soak up the sun.
A cute, bright and bubbly café with a lengthy queue early morning. Worth the wait.
