Firebrand is a cosy, friendly, intimate bakery with a family feel. It's an ideal neighbourhood spot for picking up your daily bread, or for getting a sandwich or cake slice to-go
When baker Dave Brown found the building at Ripponlea, it was being used as a book distributor’s office. The oven had no roof over it but these days, after early renovations, it sits cosily in the back of the long narrow building. The woodfire oven has since been retired in favour of a newer model, and Dave son Seamus and daughter Lily now own and operate Firebrand. But aside from those changes, the quality here is as good as it's ever been.
