Perched on the corner of Elizabeth Street and Wentworth Avenue in Sydney’s CBD is Basket Brothers – a local brunch favourite that has Sydney foodies talking.
With its welcoming and friendly atmosphere, exceptional all-day breakfast and lunch dishes, and outstanding coffee, it comes as no surprise that people are raving about it.
Basket Brothers specialise in café food that uses only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. They even smoke their own in-house meat! Dishes such as their signature Smoked Brisket Hash, which walks the line between breakfast and lunch with ease, will have you beyond satisfied. Some of their other “all day” menu options include French Toast, Brothers Pancakes, Brothers Benedict, Porridge, and Sourdough Toast.
On our recent visit, we couldn’t go past sampling the Spiced Avocado with cherry tomato, dukkah, goat cheese, and poached egg on sourdough. Generously sized, fresh, and absolutely delicious. The sprinkling of dukkah really gives it that extra bit of oomph which had us licking our lips with satisfaction.
We also couldn’t resist trying the Veggie Basket. This one is more than generously sized with two eggs, truffled mushrooms, fresh avo, halloumi, hash brown, wilted spinach, roasted tomato, house relish and sourdough. If you get through this one, you’ll be good for the entire day.
While the menu is a vegetarian’s delight, there are also a variety of burgers and sandwiches for meat lovers to wrap their hands around. The Brothers Burger sounds absolutely scrumptious with two grass fed beef patties, double cheese, chutney, pickled jalapenos, sweet onions, aioli, tomato and lettuce with a side of fries. Not for the faint-hearted. Other lunch options include the pasta of the week, grilled salmon, and the grilled chicken salad – plenty to feast on!
The cafe brews Pablo & Rusty’s coffee blend to satisfy all your caffeine cravings. We found it to be one of the better coffees we’ve had in recent times so if anything, check this place out for its good coffee. Highly recommended!
