Just the spot for a quick bite coming into Liverpool Street Station before a visit to theatre. Good food (no problems with vegan options), lively atmosphere, busy, but we were seated and attended too very promptly (a special mention to our server, Summer).

About the restaurant

Bringing the lively spirit of Australia to London, Brickwood Cafe has been a cherished hub for breakfast, coffee, and brunch enthusiasts since 2013. What began as a cosy Clapham café has blossomed into a network of five distinct locations across the South West, winning the hearts of locals while proudly remaining 100% independent and organically nurtured.

In the early days, terms like "Flat White" and "smashed avocados on toast" were unfamiliar to many, but Brickwood Cafe introduced Londoners to these breakfast delights with flair. A highlight is their Banana bread adorned with a sliver of espresso butter—a sensation that captivated taste buds and created devoted fans.

Step inside, take a seat and immerse yourself in the genuine Aussie breakfast experience at Brickwood Cafe—an enduring favourite in London's vibrant breakfast scene.

Brilliant little cafe, tucked away under one of the mega towers in elephant and castle. We visited for breakfast and really enjoyed our avocado 🥑 on toast, vegan yogurts. The coffee was delicious too. Possibly one of the best breakfast options in the elephant and surrounding Southwark area 👏👏👏
