There’s an abundance of toppings from smashed peas with salty sheep feta, creamy buffalo curd with plum jam or Fix and Fogg peanut butter with sprouts. Grab one of the chewy chocolate cookies as a great post-toast snack and stock up on the homemade pickles, chutneys and fermented chili sauce to take a taste of Were Bros home with you.
