The Bakehouse in Dundarave – More Than Just Pies
It was a bright, sunny weekend when we found ourselves looking for breakfast options out in Dundarave. At first, we were hesitant in trying out The Bakehouse because we thought they just served pies but, once we walked in, we were glad to discover that they also serve a bunch of breakfast and lunch options too.
We picked The Dog’s Breakfast (a yummy hash made with eggs, sausage, mushrooms, and peppers served with roasted potatoes, and multigrain toast) and The Farmhouse (eggs, sausage, muffin, tomatoes served with roasted potatoes and multigrain toast).
Usually, I think of toast as a bit of a filler item in breakfast dishes but I couldn’t believe how awesome the buttered multigrain toast tasted paired with their jam. I’m guessing it’s because the bread must be freshly baked. The sausage and roasted potato hashbrowns were all done perfectly as well.
The interior is reminiscent of how the Bread Garden (now called BG Urban Cafe) used to look like years ago with a bunch of wooden tables in a very casual and communal atmosphere. The staff brings out your order to your table but pretty much everything else (cutlery, napkins, water, ketchup and jam) is self-serve. We finished our meal just as a family with a loud crying baby sat down next to us so we quickly made our departure. Aside from the crying baby, the food’s pretty good and it seems like a perfect spot if you want to meet up with friends and grab a quick bite.
