It was my first wedding anniversary on Saturday, and to kick off the day we decided that a delicious brunch was in order. We have been meaning to try Cavellero (300 Smith St, Collingwood) for a while now, and it was decided that Saturday was going to be the day. And what a great decision it was!
For me, dining out is as much about the service as the food, and Cavellero's staff delivered the goods. It was very busy, but we were greeted with a smile at the door and directed to seats at the bar, menus and water appeared immediately, as did a lovely waitress to ask if we wanted coffee. Our order was taken promptly, and our food showed up after a minimal wait, despite the crowd.
Mr B ordered the baked eggs with roasted tomatoes, spinach, herbs and parmesan ($13). It was his first time experiencing a runny egg, and he loved it! He was also expecting the stock standard chunks of roasted tomato, but instead was presented with a beautiful rich sauce, which he likened to the delicious pasta sauce his Nonna makes.
I ordered the zucchini and spring onion fritters, with a poached egg, spinach and feta ($17).
The fritters were beautifully soft and cheesy, with the perfect amount of crispness around the edges and my poached egg was just how i like it; not too soft, and not too hard.
My meal was accompanied by two delicious and creamy latte's, as the first was so good I absolutely had to have another.
Cavellero is also open for dinner, and my understanding is that it becomes a bit of a happening bar in the later hours. We will definitely be going back!
