Bric-a-Brac

Blink and you might miss Bric-a-Brac, the petite French cafe that’s just opened in the bustling Thornbury Village strip.

Bric-a-Brac is no Café Vue, nor is it trying to be. Instead, owner Mathilde wants her quirky café/bar/manger/deli to have a relaxed, unpretentious environment.

Currently an all  day affair with a bar coming soon, Bric-a-Brac’s seasonal menu boasts all the favourites that French café cuisine is known for.

Croque Monsieur and Nicoise Salad sit comfortably in the “French Classics” section, while ratatouille has double billing with the baguettes and galettes.

Both the sweet crepes and galettes (savoury crepes) are made with organic buckwheat flour. And proving that organic doesn’t have to equal a broken bank crepes start at $4.50, while the top end smoked salmon, crème fraiche and lemon galette will set you back $10.50.

The medium range Mushrooms and Cheese Galette weighs in at  $8.50.

Bric-a-Brac sources everything locally where it can and proudly states that their fruit and vegetables are from across the road from Psarakos Market.

Pastries are from Noisette, beans by Coffee Supreme and milk courtesy of Jonesy’s. Even their cured meats and eggs are sourced locally, with Barkly Smokehouse in Preston getting a mention. The exception is the cheese, which is sourced from France (of course!)

If all this sounds tres bien, then take a chance and come a little further down High Street into Thornbury. Just keep your eyes peeled at the Normanby Road junction.
