Bar Pacino | 175 Eagle Street, BRISBANE CBD QLD 4000

The other bunnie and I took one look at the breakfast menu and realised that Bar Pacino had made us an offer we couldn’t refuse! Within 15 minutes we had hopped over to 175 Eagle Street and were seated and ordering our breakky.

Bar Pacino is relatively new on the foodie scene in the Brisbane CBD and enjoys a prised position elevated directly above the riverfront. The dining space is simple and has an open air/bistro feel but its food is the real attraction.

Both bunnies were hungry and craving eggs so the other travel bunnie opted for The Pacino – Eggs your way, pork & fennel sausage, bacon, haloumi, Italian flat mushrooms, slow roasted tomato & pane de casa toast ($18.50) while I thought I would take a more conservative option and went with the Omelette – Olives, Italian flat mushrooms, spinach, soft fetta & sourdough w/tomato relish.  Both dishes were generous (I think at one stage the other bunnie described the mounds of food atop his wooden serving platter as ridiculously excessive) but both had rustic, traditional Italian food as their solid foundation.  The highlights of the Pacino had to be the perfectly grilled haloumi, the tasty sausage and the creamy scrambled eggs.  My vegetarian omelette was equally hearty and I particularly loved the combination of feta and Italian olives which were folded into it giving it a unique – almost pizzaesq - flavour.  Unfortunately, I was not up to the task and the other bunnie had to finish off my dish as well.  It was all washed down with a mug of well made cappuccino and a combination juice for the other bunnie (who simply asked the waiter to put something together that was not solely orange juice and he was most presently surprised with the fruity flavours that he got in return).

Bar Pacino seems like the perfect place to get together with friends over a drink on a hot summer day with the cool river breezes pushing through its open spaces but do not discount it as a breakfast spot when your looking for nonna’s big Italian breakfast and you don’t want to leave the CBD.

Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $40
