open 7am -7pm

Meat Cheese Bread is nestled between some edgy shop and the Thai Thai branch that hasn’t had a customer since 1989, just east of the Vegan Mall.

I’ve described adventurous breakfasting as the sport of ‘extreme waiting’, and when there aren’t a lot of truly unique places to visit, I tend not to step too far out of the ordinary. Ok, fuck it, I’m lying. I’ve had rotating mini-crushes on various Genie’s employees over the years, to the point that going there has become kind of automatic.
