Baker & Cook (Dempsey)
Time Out says
This Baker & Cook outlet off Loewen Road in the lush Dempsey precinct might differ a little from the others. Not only is it located in a bright glasshouse with garden views and even a play area for the kids, but it will be the only branch to have exclusive dishes you can only find in Loewen Road. The outlet is also part of a vibrant cluster which includes other names like Plank Sourdough Pizza, Core Collective and Swish Swimming.
The menu has plenty to offer for the breakfast crowd and some highlights include Peter Gordon's Turkish Eggs ($20), a hearty and comforting dish with whipped warm yoghurt, poached eggs, Aleppo chilli butter and sprouted wheat sourdough for dipping. For a sweeter option, the Dutch baby pancake ($22) which is topped with earl grey poached pear, berries, maple yoghurt and lemon curd.
Besides the breakfast stuff, you can also order pizzas from Plank while dining in-house, as well as a selection of small and large sharing plates like miso-glazed eggplant ($16) with wakame brown butter, spring onion and cashew; and blackened corn barley risotto ($25) topped with grilled baby corn, sage and goat’s cheese.
