Apologies for this review being up a week after the experience but I have been so busy with working and my other online pursuits I have neglected my darling blog. Good news though – I HAVE A FULL TIME JOB!!! YAY!! So now I can afford to go out for breakfasts again and get some more reviews rolling in! It’s such a relief after being made redundant back in December. Financial stress SUCKS.
Anyway… Cafe Villa. Well after dragging my sorry arse out of bed at 4am to go to the dawn service with my friend Chowder le Clam, we decided to get some breakfast afterwards to fill our cold, empty stomachs. We got off to a bit of a false start as there was a line for the cafe and I don’t think they prepared well for the influx of people after the dawn service. There was one poor girl working on the floor, rushed off her feet. We decided to sit outside because there were no other tables and we resigned ourselves to the fact we’d have to be patient to order.
The menu isn’t very inspiring but it’s breakfast food and you can’t go wrong with the old favourites like eggs benedict, pancakes, full breakfasts etc. The prices were very reasonable I thought, with a “Villa Big Breakfast” (2 eggs chipolatas, bacon, hash browns and grilled tomatoes with toast) weighing in at $18.90 down to $5.50 for toast and spreads. The beverage selection was larger than the food menu with coffee’s every which way, a selection of teas, ice chocolates and coffees (and ice WHITE chocolate *drool*) , juices, san Pellegrino drinks.
Despite the wait and the stressed out waitress, the food was quite nice at Cafe Villa. I would definitely go back again. It’s a nice place for a standard breakfast and they have room for big tables. Also being fully licensed means you can take advantage of a champagne breakfast!
Oh.. and we eventually did get our water.
