Grain Organic Bakery
Artisan Soudough & Seeded Breads
61-71 Mentmore Ave,
Rosebery, Sydney

Grain is a bakery first and foremost, producing a wide variety of lovely sourdough and seeded bread varieties on the premises.

But it’s important to also realise that this is a café too, with a great menu and a lot of quirky recycled furnishings giving the whole place huge charm and appeal.

It may be a bit hard to find as there is no signage allowed on the building but it’s definitely worth making the effort to find this great place.

The décor is really delightful and certainly interesting, with a row of old cinema seats down one side and both modern and antique furniture living happily together.

The large window, which shows part of the bakery workings, is a nice feature.

To start the experience, Dame K chose a Single Origin Ceylon tea and Dame M had her fix of a flat white from Cabrito coffee beans.

Both were very nice drops.

The breakfast menu is offered until 11.30 each day and the lunch menu follows, with really tempting sandwich and salad options.

Dame K decided on the toasted brioche roll with free-range bacon and eggs, tomato relish, BBQ sauce and Swiss cheese. The combination sounded so good! The brioche roll turned out to be big and beautiful. Despite the size, the brioche was soft and light so it wasn’t a heavy meal. The filling was tasty, the bacon was crispy and the eggs oozed to perfection!

For Dame M, it was the smashed avocado, Persian feta, soft boiled eggs, pistachio and basil.

This smashed avo dish was just as impressive with great visual appeal.

The Persian feta was silky and combined so well with the beautifully cooked eggs and the toast gave it a nice crunch.

What a delicious dish!

We couldn’t leave without trying something from the lunch menu, so we opted for a sandwich with slow roasted pork loin, spring onion salsa, hummus and sesame. It was a very substantial sandwich, stuffed full of goodies which really complemented each other. It was also a winner. We also saw some amazing looking salads come out while we were grazing so we’ve made a mental note to try some next time.

And the bread!!

Where do we start when it comes to talking about the delicious goodies they have here.

We had to take some home - it was impossible to resist!

The Dames love good sourdough and these loaves impressed us with their light centres and authentic flavour.

Grain is open 6 days a week currently (closed Sunday) between 8am and 4pm and is located in a large brick warehouse building.

The building is being renovated to house other specialty businesses which will move in soon and give visitors a gourmet centre experience.

Well done to owner Brian Horgan for bringing this to the people and to the lovely Alfie and staff who looked after us so well.

 Those Dames, who review for Sir and Mlady Dine Out, were guests of Grain. Special thanks to Clive Morley for arranging this visit.
