Common Loaf Bake Shop

We’d gone surfing earlier in the day and hadn’t had time to eat a normal breakfast so we were famished by the time we made it to Common Loaf Bake Shop.

We dropped in on a Thursday afternoon (around 1:15pm) and were greeted to a line out the door. Be prepared to wait; service is incredibly slow and inefficient. We were in line for half an hour and waited another 10 minutes for them to make our order.

The menu is split into breakfast (only available to 1:00pm), grilled sandwiches (only available to 3:00pm) and hot drinks.

They also have a small selection of pastries (bread, muffins, baklava (randomly) and tarts/cakes/bars).

Ham sandwich ($7.95)
DSC03026Chipotle mayo, spinach, ham and mozza cheese. At least the bread was toasted and the cheese melted.

Other than that, decent but you could easily make something similar at home. I was still hungry afterwards.

Vegan hummus sandwich ($8.25)
DSC03028Homemade hummus, spinach, tomato and caramelized onions. The hummus was light and caramelized onions subtle. Same bread used in all their sandwiches. Not sure why the vegetarian option is pricier than the meat one.

Cash only. Don’t bother with CL.
