Finally managed to pop into Glenwood Bakery to marvel at all the delicious artisan breads I’ve been reading about on other blogs and I was not disappointed. It’s a carbohydrate-lover’s paradise!!!
The smell in there is just amazing – there’s not much that can beat the smell of fresh bread straight from the oven, but the fact that there are so many amazing varieties of bread on offer is way bigger a draw card. I can see this bakery being an extremely popular detour on my usual grocery run trip!
They have a small menu of fresh sandwiches and they also serve Colombo Coffee.
Next door to the bakery is Parc Cafe, which has offically become my favourite breakfast spot after I tried their bircher muesli. Rabbit food you might say, but my word, this was the most deliciously creamy muesli I have ever tasted, with freshly grated apple, pomegranate seeds, not-too-sweet honey and cinnamon in the exact right quantities – flip I need some of this again soon! The eggs benedict were impressive too and the lunch menu written up on the chalkboard walls included some pretty yummy sounding salads, sarmies and quiches so we’ll be back soon!
