Rustica’s large glass panel windows welcome you off bustling Brunswick Street and into their cozy bakery.

Drop in for a cup of Roastcraft coffee to sip in the morning sun paired with a cheeky Portuguese tart or popcorn-flavoured macaron. If you’re really hungry, the Rustica breakfast board is great value, consisting of housemade granola, a poached free-range egg on your choice of bread, organic yoghurt, seasonal poached fruits, smashed avocado, and organic juice.

Housemade gourmet pies of slow roasted beef cheek or roast vegetable and lentil pasties are baked fresh daily, and a small revolving dinner menu is also available on Friday and Saturday nights. Highlights include the lamb burger on brioche with housemade pickled cucumber and onion, the spinach and ricotta gnudi with burnt butter and sage or the slow cooked beef ragu.

Rustica is also fully licenced offering a small craft beer selection and wild yeast fermented wines in keeping with the Sourdough theme.
