Time Out says

If you walk down Gore Street in Fitzroy there’s a chance you’ll be able to smell the inviting scent of freshly baked bread. That heavenly aroma is coming from Faraday’s Cage, an artisan bakery located in an old warehouse that once served as the home of recording studio Adelphia. Owner John Petrou started the café on the back of his baking skills, which he perfected across almost three decades as a hobby.

Step inside and you’ll be greeted with a counter full of freshly baked pastries as well as shelves full of various kinds of bread. Everything is baked in house, staying as close to traditional techniques as possible.

But baked goods aren’t all they do. The menu is built around seasonal variation and features classics like eggs benedict as well as ricotta pancakes and the brisket burger. For those who have a little trouble picking and choosing there’s the appropriately named ‘Can’t Decide?’, a tasting plate of breakfast goodies that will satisfy even the pickiest of brunch diners.

Coffee comes from Dukes Coffee roasters, so you know who to thank for that caffeine fix.
