ROADFOOD 'ROAD TEST'
A weekly review of a regional eatery in North-East Victoria or the Southern Riverina
This week: BBB restaurant/cafe, 358 Wodonga Place, Albury
BBB an Albury coffee hot spot
BBB is an Albury hot spot best known for its freshly-brewed coffee, artisan breads and bread rolls, pies, sausage rolls, cakes and slices, and the White Owl blend of freshly-roasted coffee beans to take away.
Barista, Baker, Brewer (hence BBB) operates from a former Pizza Hut restaurant in Wodonga Place, Albury, opposite Noreuil Park and is operated by brothers Harry and Joe Perry and their friendly staff.
While BBB does great coffees, hot chocolate and teas, don’t ignore breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, as they do that as well.
BBB’s extensive weekday all-day breakfast menu includes sourdough toast, granola, schnitzel panini, grilled chicken bagel, bacon and egg panini and salmon, brie and avocado bagel.
On weekends you can choose from granola, eggs on toast, smashed avocado and BBB brekky, with plenty of sides available.
Customers also pack the restaurant just for their coffee and yummy pies and sausage rolls.
If any of the above are not to your liking, you can order blueberry and ricotta pancakes, a salmon stack, a BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato on sourdough toast), or a bowl of chips.
Whatever you choose you won’t be disappointed.
While coffee is the beverage of choice, BBB also serves pots of tea, sticky chai pot and takeaway coffees, as well as milkshakes, iced coffees and a range of cold drinks.
These can be enjoyed indoors or on benches with umbrellas outside.
The restaurant has proven popular with local car clubs and other organisations and on any given Saturday or Sunday morning the restaurant and carpark are overflowing.
But if crowds are not your thing, BBB has a stall at the weekly Albury-Wodonga Farmers’ Market at Gateway Island on the Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga.
Here you can buy fresh bread and rolls and a range of pastries, and you can get to enjoy a White Owl coffee while wandering the market.
BBB is open from 6am to 5pm Monday to Friday, 7am to 4pm on Saturday, and 8am to 4pm on Sunday.
