Quick Chop! Bricks & Stones

Bricks & Stones - 190 Unley Road, Unley SA 5061


Needing a quick lunch mid errands one Saturday, I (Amanda) stop in at Bricks and Stones as it has been one of those places on my to do list for awhile now.  Hidden just off Unley Road, we enter into a large dining space with exposed brick walls and a wall of funky art work.  The premises once was a stable and also a commercial bakery and it's great to see the old school commercial oven and some stable features retained as it gives the place a great feel.  A large counter with mouth watering house made cakes (and also a selection of Abbots & Kinney pastries) catch our eye but luckily for our waistlines we are swiftly taken to a vacant table, coffee and tea orders taken and menu's provided.

Breakfast Burger $15
I find it hard to go past a 'Breakfast Burger', especially one with haloumi and am excited when this one arrives with it's generous overflowing fillings.  The fried egg is served sunny side up with the yolk lovely and runny which was delicious seeping through and covering all the other burger ingredients.  If I was having that fried egg on it's own I would have liked the white of it to be cooked just that little bit more as it was quite translucent still.  The bacon tender with a few nice crispy edges, the haloumi fried to a lovely caramelised outer and soft inner, the mashed avocado providing a nice spread for the brioche bun which held up great with the plentiful filling.  I caught a tang from the tomato relish here and there and the rocket giving it the freshness to complete this well rounded breakfast, or in this case, lunch meal.

Poached Eggs with Smoked Salmon $17
My mum selected the poached eggs with smoked salmon, lime and tahini avocado, capers and pesto on dark rye.  She is always a little nervous when she comes out with me, as I like to try different places and she would rather stick to her regular haunts but today she was extremely pleased with this choice.  She raved about how perfectly cooked her poached eggs were for the rest of the day, as lately wherever she has visited has just not got that runny yolk and nicely cooked egg white quite right.  Bricks & Stones use Kangaroo Island eggs which is a good choice for sure.

Almond Milk Latte
To accompany our meals I had my regular almond milk latte and my mum enjoyed a pot of Larsen and Thompson English breakfast tea.  The almond milk used was good, not overpowering and frothed well.  Bricks & Stones use D'Angelo coffee and today even though it was on the stronger side it was easy to drink and not bitter.

Bricks & Stones Interior
We had a great lunch at Bricks and Stones (they also have a proper lunch menu, if eggs for lunch isn't your thing) and am pleased I finally had the chance to pop in to see what they are all about.  Friendly service with a smile topped off our delicious meals at a great price today and we look forward to sharing Bricks & Stones with our friends and family soon.
