Bruschetteria in Surry Hills

July 24, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I came across this place when I searched "Best Sydney Cafes" on Urbanspoon. Conveniently, it is located just a ten minute walk from my studio. I was out the door before you could say "bruschetta"

When I arrived at my destination I saw the Bruschetteria specialises in more than just bruschetta...

... they are also known for their nutella coffee!

While it is too sweet to have as your caffeine fix every day, it is a perfectly enjoyable treat. It tasted like a creamy mocha with a bit of nutty flavour. The detailed designs the barista creates on the top of each order is also a nice touch. 

Now, lets talk food.

I came for the bruschetta, but they had this whole section on their menu with homemade fettuccine and gnocchi options. It all sounded so good! So, I came up with a game plan: order the homemade fettuccine with pesto - then come back the next day and get the bruschetta.  

The plentiful plate of pesto pasta was perfect. Seriously, alliteration aside, it really was delightful and I would recommend it to anyone in the area. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the bruschetta I tried today, although I get the feeling I ordered wrong. I had my eye on the cheese, prosciutto, honey, walnut and pear bruschetta option, but changed my mind and ordered the sausage, cheese and mushroom one. The sausage was just OK, it tasted like it was just some store bought packaged meat - and they went skimpy on the cheese.

Never go skimpy on the cheese.
