Pansabella Providores is a welcoming cafe for visitors to the quiet regional town of Coffs Harbour. It is conveniently located in the town centre. You will not miss the charming French-style Delicatessen Café with an in-house flower market. The interior was very pretty and well decorated with a lot of natural light.
You can sit quietly at a corner and read the morning paper without interruptions or you can start a friendly conversation with the staff. The fresh flowers for sale have a lovely fragrance and there is a soft French melody playing in the background. It is really a lovely, calm and relaxing café to have a leisurely breakfast.
We started our breakfast with a nice cup of coffee. The coffee was outstanding. It was freshly brewed and aromatic. We picked our own table by the window and enjoyed ourselves in this beautifully decorated and designed cafe.
We ordered a serving of Organic Apricot & Fig Fruit Loaf ($8.00) which has just come straight out of the oven. The warm bread slices were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The extra sugar dusting turned this into a sweet delight. It was deliciously served with fresh house-made ricotta & honey.
The Truffle Scrambled Eggs on Sourdough with Roast Tomato & Avocado ($17.00) was my personal favourite dish of mine. It was vibrantly presented and the distinctive truffle scent was unmistakable. The truffle scrambled eggs was smooth, creamy and velvety. Together with the roasted tomato and avocado made this a smashing breakfast. In one word: YUM.
We also ordered the Special of the Day which was a Toasted Turkish Breakfast BLAT with Fried Egg, Tomato, Avocado and Pancetta ($16.00) It was highly recommended by the staff. We were glad that we followed his advise.
It was a generous serving filled with crispy pancetta stripes, crushed avocado, tomato slices and topped with a fried egg. It was more like a deconstructed sandwich, we could not hold everything together but the taste was sensational. We loved the golden toasted Turkish bread and this breakfast combo worked well for us.
After the savory meals, we wanted something sweet, so we ordered a Vanilla Bean Pancakes with Caramelised Banana and Ice Cream ($14.00) to share.
I think we really got the best value for money here. We were served with 3 lovely soft fluffy vanilla bean pancakes stacked tall. They were topped with grilled bananas and a large scoop of ice cream. Two spoonful of this sent us to a happy sugar high.
