Rustica’s large glass panel windows welcome you off bustling Brunswick Street and into the cosy bakery.
Drop in for a cup of coffee paired with a cheeky Portuguese tart or popcorn-flavoured macaron. If you’re really hungry, the Rustica breakfast board is great value, consisting of house-made granola, a poached free-range egg on your choice of bread, organic yoghurt, seasonal poached fruits, smashed avocado, and organic juice.
House-made gourmet pies (with fillings such as slow roasted beef cheek or roast vegetable) and lentil pasties are baked daily – eat them with house-made pickles, relishes and sauces. Rustica is also fully licensed – offering a small craft beer selection and wild yeast fermented wines, in keeping with the sourdough theme.
