Bulimba's new go-to for gourmet sandwiches — including stacked Cubanos, deep-fried numbers and a PB&J on brioche.

If you're looking for a sandwich on the east side of the river, you can now head to a new home of the humble bread-and-filling combo. Setting up shop on Oxford Street in Bulimba, Crumbs only serves up one kind of food — but its seven different varieties definitely won't bring back bad memories of oh-so-many school lunches.

Instead, thanks to a menu designed by Ben Williamson (Gerard's Bistro), Crumbs' sandwich lineup is classic but classy. The Cubano ($14) features ham, roast pork, mustard, swiss cheese, coriander and pickled pepper, while The Green Out ($12) is a vegetable and salad-filled combination of avocado, zucchini, spinach, pesto, feta, za'atar and lime. Feeling indulgent? The Venetian ($10) is filled with mozzarella, then deep-fried and served with tomato garlic dip — and the PB&J ($10) takes crunchy peanut butter, throws in some jam and serves it on brioche, complete with candied peanuts, too.

What you won't find here is pulled pork or beef brisket, with Crumbs going old-school rather than serving up the kind of sangas on many other menus in town.

Blackstar Coffee will take care of your caffeine hit, with Crumbs open for breakfast and lunch from Tuesday to Saturday.

If you're keen to try a sandwich — and you love a cuppa — Crumbs is also giving away free coffees on Thursday, October 17 from 9am–12pm.
