Wholly Crumpets

The perfectly dense discs made by Wholly Crumpets are a menu fixture at many Brisbane cafes, but those keen to get the goods from the source can do so at the brand’s own cafe on Oxford Street in Bulimba. The 20-seater cafe, which occupies the site formerly home to Crumbs Sandwich Bar, is a largely alfresco establishment with a crisp-white dispensary overlooking a scattering of shaded tables. Though it boasts a small footprint, the menu offers plenty of variety, starting with buttered crumpets coated in lashings of Hive & Harvest honey, house jam, 100s & 1000s, Butta Nutta honeycomb butter, Vegemite or three cheeses. Sweet options like banana with honeycomb butter and bee pollen lead into layered savoury selections like smoked salmon with dill cream cheese and capers, tomato with ricotta, herbs and balsamic or avocado with fetta, lemon and hemp seeds. Those with a larger hunger rumbling in their stomach should look to the Crumpy section – crumpet sandwiches stuffed with the likes of fried egg, bacon, cheese, mayo and HP sauce, mushroom, jalapeno, cheese, sour cream and chutney, or Branston pickles with three cheeses. Beyond crumpets, Wholly’s cafe also serves granola topped with Greek yoghurt and fruit, and soup of the day with a side of crumpet soldiers for dipping. Local roaster Tim Adams Specialty Coffee is Wholly’s caffeine supplier of choice, with espresso, one and one, batch brew, cold brew and a signature sip called the Morning Glory – an invigorating mixture of cold brew, tonic, bitters and orange – on offer.
