This is a café and bakery, and thanks to the open kitchen, customers can see the bread being made, so it’s worth paying a visit. As it’s one of the best bakeries in town, it would be a mistake not to try a sandwich here – the sourdough is exceptional. And the wide range of fillings means there’s something for everyone. For sweeter treats, there are delicious pastries and tarts. More unusual options include olive and cheddar scones. The founders of Brickfields come from Luxe bakery and Mecca, so the coffee is something to write home about too. The beans come mostly from El Salvador and have a slight fruity taste. Brickfields is tiny and the best seats are next to the window – good for people watching over a mushroom melt and a delicious flat white.
