Brickfields, Chippendale

Brickfields is a new bakery in the backstreets of Chippendale. They make their own bread and supply the sourdough to Cornersmith, Love Tilly Devine and Flour & Stone. I love the feel of this café, it is quite small though, a few tables inside and outside and the menu is very limited and if you like variety, then you might struggle but I think there is always something for everyone.

We started with this wonderful drink which for the life of me can’t remember the name of. However, it was incredibly refreshing and delicious – even Dragon wanted some but it was a little too sweet for her.


I have heard wonderful things about their beef brisket sandwich with radish, anchovy mayonnaise and chili, unfortunately they don’t make that anymore. When asked why? They want to change the menu – spice it up a little. I can’t remember what they replaced it with but I couldn’t go past the egg, eggplant, tahini and zhoug on sourdough – OMG YUM! The bread was deliciously fresh and the zhoug – fantastic! My only gripe would be that it is a small serving, I would happily eat another serving!


‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the chorizo, spiced cabbage and chili. It was good but mine was definitely better. The chorizo was nicely spice-y but the zhoug – oh my!


Service was efficient, I can imagine this place extremely busy on the weekend. We went on a weekday and we got the last table available. I have heard the coffee is also good but I am still on a non-drinking coffee ban. Oh wells, next time.

I have really missed the café scene in Sydney, will definitely be back for more when I am in town next.

    I went here the other day — I felt like a nice walk to somewhere tasty during the work week. I’m sad too that I didn’t get to try the brisket sambo but what I had was excellent and I LOVE their homemade sodas.
