The breakfast menu at Don Vincenzo is lengthy with many appealing choices. They serve cafe breakfast staples such as eggs benedict and eggs florentine, as well as more unusual options with intriguing names such as 'relish me' and 'ma baker'.
I ordered 'green eggs and ham' from the breakfast menu, which consisted of pesto scrambled eggs with grilled ham, served with English muffins. The serving size was unnecessarily generous. Pesto scrambled eggs tend to be slightly oily, so large servings are not recommended. I also ordered a hash brown, which was thicker than the standard hash brown size. Having more deliciously fluffy potato could never be a bad thing.
My companion ordered the curiously named 'bang bang': chilli scrambled eggs served with bacon, a grilled tomato and a slice of sourdough. The chilli scrambled eggs were not as spicy as they sound, with chilli flakes giving the dish a slight kick.
The waitress was willing to swap out ingredients from the dish I ordered; a welcome change from restaurants that charge for swaps.
Don Vincenzo is clearly a popular lunch destination, with plenty of patrons filling the cosy restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. We were squeezed into a table near the poorly-lit back, which was uncomfortably close to the neighbouring tables. The decor was eye-catching, with vintage advertisements hanging on the walls.
A versatile venue, Don Vincenzo also has a lengthy lunch and dinner menu with many pasta options, and even boasts a tapas menu. Transforming into a bar by nightfall, they are open late every day of the week.
