Brasserie Bread, Banksmeadow

Brasserie Bread is only about 5 minutes drive from the office.
We have been coming to this cafe / bakery / patisserie frequently for lunch and almost every day to get a cup of Allpress Coffee to go.
So, instead of going to lunch for colleagues' birthdays like the usual, one of us suggested why not do a brunch instead ? 
Later on my suspicion was confirmed, he who suggested it has craving for their Sourdough Pancakes LOL

As Brasserie Bread do not take bookings, we were lucky to get a table for 11 of us when we got there around mid morning !

Sourdough Pancakes w/ Stewed Berries & Honeycomb Cream

The pancakes are rich in flavour but still light and fluffy in texture, and I love the honeycomb cream...mmmmm.

Sourdough Pancakes w/ Banana & Maple Syrup

And seems like there is a sprinkle of coconut shavings too. The banana is incorporated into the pancake instead of placed on top like you'd find normally in cafes. 

The following two are already made up for a quick grab & go for those who are short for time :)

Ham & Cheese Croissant

Brasserie Bread Chicken Club Sandwich

These ones are made fresh to order in the cafe, of course you still can have them for take away :D

Slow Roasted Tomatoes, Avocado, Bacon, Crispy Bacon on Wholemeal Toast w/  A Poached Egg

Florentine Panini

My favourite item here !! Didn't get it this time round since I'm having a big dinner later that night :P
Fried egg, bacon, spinach and hollandaise sauce on freshly baked panini - oh so delicous !!

We have proposed to our group manager that we should move our monthly team meeting to Brasserie Bread since they have food and free Wi-Fi connection LOL
He nodded and smile - who knows what that means ? Yay or Nay ? Hmmm....

Then later on in the afternoon, a birthday cake at the office \^o^/ Thanks guysss !!!!
The cake is from nearby Croquembouche Patisserie in Banksmeadow.

Red Berries - Reduction of berries with spices and vanilla beans with mascarpone cream
