Across the globe, bread is one of the most popular types of food – and it’s not difficult to see why. It’s delicious, packed full of nutrients and extremely versatile, making it a staple food for the majority of people. For this reason, bread will likely feature heavily on your cafe menu – but what’s the best way to incorporate it into your dishes? Here, we’ve suggested six great ways to use bread in your cafe.

French toast

A delicious twist on the breakfast classic, French toast is the perfect sweet treat for customers to enjoy. All you need for French toast is sliced bread, eggs, milk and then a selection of sweet toppings, such as strawberries, blueberries, maple syrup or honey.

Welsh rarebit

Welsh rarebit is another great alternative to plain toast, but unlike French toast is a savoury dish. It’s made by melting cheese with mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and sometimes even beer, and then slavering the sauce all over a piece of toast.

Cheese toastie

What’s better than a traditional cheese toastie? Mix it up with lots of different fillings or keep it simple with plain cheese. This is sure to be a winner with your customers whether served on its own or on the side of a warming bowl of soup.

Avocado on toast

Avocado on toast has become a hugely popular dish recently and has become known as the perfect brunch dish. Once you’ve sliced or mashed the avocado, simply spread it on your toast and top with a poached egg, sliced tomato, hot sauce or any other topping of your choice.

Garlic bread

Garlic bread is one of the nation’s favourite dishes, so why not offer it as an option on your menu? Simply toast thick slices of bread and spread each chunk with butter, garlic and fresh parsley to create the perfect accompaniment to pasta dishes or soup.

Breakfast butty

To appease your customers on their commute, fill two soft slices of buttered bread with perfectly fried eggs, sausages or bacon for the perfect breakfast butty. Cover with lashings of ketchup and serve with a cup of tea!
