Located at 33 Bridge Street, Erskineville under the newly finished apartment complex just there – Food Craft Espresso and Bakery is a hop and skin away from Erskineville station (just walk along Bridge street) and you’ll get there soon enough. Housed in a lofty 3.8m high space is the Foodcraft Espresso and Bakery; itself a cafe/bakery with plenty to like. They also sell a signature range of donuts called Tellaballs and contrary to the name, isn’t just Nutella. There’s vanilla Ricotta, salted Caramel, Jam and of course Nutella Donuts.

Foodcraft’s cafe space has that generous volume that makes it look and feel very airy and generous. They’ve done just enough in the space; the simplicity in this instance works. Accents include copper piping, some nice brickwork and attractive use of graphics/fonts. There’s al fresco dining and also a seating inside. The menu is broadly broken up into bevvies, breakfast then lunch eats like paninis, burgers and sandwiches and salads.
We popped in for lunch and ordered a chicken sandwich (panini), their hotcakes with blueberries, a chocolate cake and their mango cake as well as coffees and a fresh juice. There’s plenty on their menu to pick from from panini’s to burgers and salads. Cakes were delicious and the mango one was a delightfully fruity treat.
Foodcraft Espress & Bakery was a nice al fresco option that sat away from the bustle of king and also Erskineville’s main stretch. There’s plenty of reasons to check back in; our mate Bobby recently devoured 3 of their donuts in a sitting and this was after pizzas and mr crackles. If anything is testament to their deliciousness, that is it.
