Famished Fridays: In the Bread Garden...


I realised how challenging it was to find a quiet and cozy place to study and grab a bite to eat after class... I came across this little bakery in Unley by accident and stepped in as soon as I saw the dainty little chairs and signage out the front.


True to its name, this little Korean cafe was filled with a fresh bed of dough. From Western-style breads to the sweet and soft Asian breads, you'll be spoiled for choice. 


Our favourite was, without a doubt, the Korokke Bread, a Japanese croquette filled with potatoes and vegetables in fried bread. Next up would be the French Toast and the Espresso Rotti. They've come up with some unique treats, as expected of an Asian bakery.


The staff members here are very friendly and accommodating, making good company if you ever come here alone to study. There's Wi-Fi, big soft squishy chairs, and the smell of fresh bread and pastries all day long, what more do you need in this cold Wintery weather? 


We met the owner of the cafe, Matt, who told us about his obsession with acquiring decor for the cafe, his love for the tree by the window, and his impressively fluent Chinese skills (he knows more than me! Then again, my Chinese is that of a first year primary school student haha). 

Do check out this place if you ever want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. They also have another store in Glynde.

Till next Friday!

Much love,
