The best thing since sliced bread has come to Braddon. That’s right, Canberra’s first toast bar, Toasted, has opened its doors. ‘What’s a toast bar?’, you may ask.
“Well, we specialise in all things toast, of course,” explains co-owner of Toasted, Brittany Lindores.
“Ranging from the simple PB & J to elaborate toasty toppings like the decadent Smores toast.”
Serving up slabs of toast and topping out of Lonsdale Street’s Mode3 building, the crew at Toasted have all the crowd favourites, along with some more eclectic options for those who live and work in the heart of Braddon.
So how does it work? Customers can choose a base bread, ranging from gluten-free and multi grain to the wood-fired jalapeno sourdough, and then pick from an assortment of tasty spreads. The ‘Epics’ range features the BAE (bacon, avo and egg) and the Nut’in But Love comprises of wood-fired fruit loaf, topped with almond butter, honey and spiced nut sprinkle.
Those after a classic toasty can enjoy a Tuna Melt, Rueben, or the timeless Ham Cheese Tomato. Frequent specials keep the menu on trend; this week try The Big Smoke with Pialligo Estate bacon, cheese, and hickory BBQ sauce.
Don’t feel like toast? Why not try a freshly made acai or muesli bowl?
“Get ready to turn your morning breakfast or boring work lunch into something spectacular that is affordable, quick and easy,” says Lindores.
Toasted has a focus on keeping it local. Their sourdough varieties are sourced from Gundaroo and the produce comes from Boxgum Grazing, located about 150km from Canberra. New local roasters, Kyo Coffee Project is supplying the beans for Canberra’s coffee-lovers.
Everything here is made to order, but for those looking to grab a bite on-the-go, Toasted has its own app coming soon, allowing customers to order ahead of time.
