301 Brunswick Street
After settling into our North Fitzroy digs we decided to head out for some lunch. We hit Brunswick Street & finally settled upon Don Vincenzo.
It didn't look particularly appealing, but we were hungry & quite frankly didn't fancy walking the length of Brunswick Street.
However, perhaps we should have....
Don Vincenzo is of the Newtown/Glebe type of cafe.....grungy & a bit dirty looking, the type where you sometimes wonder if you will get food poisoning or not.
The menu also was pretty standard...foccacia, bacon & eggs, bruschetta, caesar salad...you get the idea, nothing remotely adventurous.
So in line with that I ordered the Eggs Benedict with bacon. You have to wonder how anyone can stuff up Eggs Benedict....I'll tell you how. Stale, rock hard muffins, semi hard eggs & a fairly flavourless hollandaise. Pretty disgusting.
Buggles ordered some sort of Chicken foccacia and while the chicken was quite moist, the bread was quite heavy and dense. She did however enjoy her fresh apple juice.
All up, not a great first taste of what Fitzroy has to offer!
