It's about to be a whole lot easier to get your hands on Berkelo's crowd-pleasing breads and baked goods, with the bakery adding two new retail sites to its stable.
Having clocked up two years in its original Brookvale space, owners Tom Eadie and Matt Durrant are gearing up to take a even bigger bite out of Sydney's Northern Beaches. The pair has opened the doors to a second cafe, on Mosman's Military Road, with a Mona Vale location soon to follow.
Open daily, the new Mosman space is built around that same passion for simple, healthy fare that's made its sibling such a hit. It's slinging a range of revamped breakfast classics and seasonal lunch dishes, most of them starring Berkelo's legendary, long-fermented sourdough breads. Think, smashed avo with fermented vegetables, and duck served with mushrooms, onion jam and potato focaccia. You'll also find freshly baked croissants, a daily-changing lineup of generous sandwiches, and coffee made using Single Origin beans.
And of course, there's plenty of that beloved Berkelo bread available to go, all naturally leavened and crafted with all-Aussie, unbleached stone-ground flours.
Find Berkelo at 8 William Street, Brookvale, and 2/557 Military Road, Mosman. A third venue will open soon at 1/7 Bungan Street, Mona Vale.
