Oasis Fairfield is a more modern and airy, albeit smaller, version of the original Oasis Bakery.
Downstairs, there’s a large tiled counter where you order food and coffee, with a casual seating area opposite. Upstairs, more seating and a private event space for cooking demonstrations.
Middle Eastern breakfasts include avocado on za’atar bread with beetroot tahini and feta, and orange blossom hotcakes topped with honey labneh and rose-petal katifi. The popular Lebanese pizzas are here: chicken and spinach, lamb and feta, or vegetarian with extra za’atar. Halloumi chips are fried in rice bran oil then drizzled with a za’atar, garlic and yoghurt sauce, pomegranate molasses and fresh mint.
Local wines are on the list, or try a Lebanese cabernet sauvignon. Simple cocktails – spritzes, Negronis, mimosas – are available, plus local brews and an Almaza beer from Lebanon. There’s also house-made lemonade and stove-brewed Turkish coffee.
The grocery section has falafel, antipasti, cheese, soups and tagines; a rotating selection of salads, freshly baked sourdough and Middle Eastern flatbreads; and dips such as beetroot hummus and labneh. The grocer also stocks sweet pastries, beans, pulses, dried fruits, spices and other specialty products.
