Sunday morning is always our favourite morning of the week! We always wake up early and head our for a delicious breakfast, and being in Perth, today was no different. We had hoped for something near the water in Fremantle, however it was a bit of a struggle to find somewhere that didn’t have a wait. After taking a back road to get to the main strip, we came across Bread in Common. We pulled over and I quickly popped out to see if I could get a table, before trying to look for parking. We were in luck!
ATMOSPHERE & SERVICE
The venue is very ‘Melbourne’ in that it’s style and chic, yet hidden down a back road. This warehouse style fitout starts from the front alfresco area with gardens full of produce and bench seating to enjoy the sunshine.
Moving inside the space is massive with exposed high tin roof, funky hanging light globes hanging from wooden beams and long communal tables giving off a true warehouse vibe. Exposed brick follow through the interior with a large feature wall showcasing wines and a range of different pickled items.
In addition to an amazing restaurant, they are also a bakery (hence the name). Located in the back of the restaurant you will find a wood-fire open, where organic bread is prepared each day. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try any of the bread on it’s only (only in one of our breakfast dishes), however it smelt AMAZING! Condiments and bread are also available for purchase, which are displayed near the wood-fire ovens.
Since I arrived before everyone else who were parking the car, I decided to order the first round of coffees so they would arrive when everyone else did.
Although their breakfast menu isn’t extensive, there were a variety of different dishes to choose select from, including smaller items like pastries, to larger items like beef brisket and pork belly.
I decided to go with the ‘Yoghurt’ with blueberry compote, pecan & linseed granola. The yoghurt had a slight tartness to it, however was a nice mix with the sweetness from the berries and pecans. I definitely enjoyed this dish and was a perfect size!
IC ordered the ‘French Fruit Toast’ served with strawberries and whipped ricotta. Again another fantastic dish and a great twist with the fruit bread instead of just plain bread. The strawberries on top were a great added sweetness to bring the dish together.
The last dish to come out was the ‘Cured Pork Belly’ with fried eggs, baked beans and homemade hot sauce. The pork belly had the crispy outer skin with a juicy interior, the eggs cooked to perfection and the beans delicious. The hot sauce was brought separately to add as much or as little as you wanted. It had a bit of kick to it, however nothing too strong.
Overall this was a great find for us today! The food was tasty, the service friendly and the atmosphere amazing! Definitely look forward to heading back and trying out their lunch/dinner menu.
