Bricks and bakers unite at Brik Café

May 7, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

Rosebank’s 1935 fire station is still a well-oiled machine and with the recent development and its new neighbour, Brik Café, the firemen should be well nourished and well-oiled too!  

The vintage gone modern building needed only one final touch – a fitting food spotBrik Café could not be more suitable – from its name and interior to its community sense

Brik Café combines old and new with a very modest feel that links in well with its surroundingsWith the fire station serving the local community, its only natural that they also wanted to give back. They make use of numerous local suppliers for their ingredients and local crafts can be bought from the café in order to further empower the community. Owner, Sasha, explains that with heritage in mind, they wanted to go back to how food was meant to be prepared and from that, a very nourishing, preservative-free menu came about.  

They serve the most delicious vegan Linguini as well as gluten and refined sugar-free banana bread with homemade butter and ricotta and spinach gnudi. They also have chickpea pancakes and Truthery cold press juicesBefore you leave make sure take a look at what they have in The Glass Cabinet; you can choose from all kinds of treats to take home with you.

The café’s crockery was specially handmade by Duma, pottery lecturer from Pretoriawho refers to himself as an earth bender.   

Did you know?  The name Brik originated from the red brick that was initially the inspiration for the café’s interior  which was meant to fit in with the neighbouring fire station’s heritage. Brik is, interestingly enough, also a middle-Eastern pastry made from flour and oil – order the pastry from Brik Café’s dinner menu.
