Ave Cucina & Coffee Bar | 16 Eva Street, Coorparoo QLD 4151

The morning after mum had seen a spectacular show of fireworks, the other travel bunnie and I nodded in agreement that we’d done pretty well to impress mum and that the only thing left to do in order to leave her with a memorable weekend, was to take her to an equally impressive breakfast.    

We thought of Ave Cucina & Café in Coorparoo, a place where we’ve wanted to go for breakfast for a long time.     

We drove out of the city, past an industrial area, then into the suburbs.  Mum was sitting in the back of the car, obviously a little confused as to where we were heading.

It was early in the morning and we easily got ourselves a table at Ave Cucina & Café. I know that the place is popular among the locals but we weren’t acknowledged by any wait staff for a good 10 minutes after we were seated, so I got slightly anxious (to be fair, they were training two new staff). 

The breakfast menu was filled with Middle Eastern affairs.  The other travel bunnie ordered Shadi’s breakfast wrap – messy eggs, bacon, grilled haloumi & herbed mushrooms wrapped in Lebanese bread, ave tomato relish ($14.90), I ordered the ave vege breakfast for mum, which came with toasted pane, spinach, roasted balsamic tomatoes, field mushrooms, grilled haloumi, two fried eggs and ave pesto ($18.50).  And as for me, I couldn’t resist the temptation of their Sunday only fluffy ricotta pancakes ($19).  The fluffy ricotta pancakes vary depending on the chef’s creativity every week, coincidentally the one I had was inspired by the Riverfire.The portions were extremely generous and the food were flavoursome.  We all agreed that the ave vege breakfast was the clear winner, despite the other travel bunnie and I being big fans of anything that oinks or more relevantly, that once did (truth be told – anything meat related will do) for breakfast.  The combination of pesto, haloumi and mushrooms worked like magic, leaving you craving for more… and more.

Needless to say, we left breakfast feeling satisfied.  It’s no wonder Ave Cuicina & Café is so popular.

Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $66.20
