Longtime Mermaid Beach favourite Vintage Espresso will launch their new autumn menu on April 1st and it’s sure to be a hit.
Colourful, comforting and with plenty of fun flavour combinations, you might find yourself scheduling a breakfast date every day of the week.
First up, there’s the Pumpkin and Feta Mash with pistachio dukkah on toast and poached eggs perched on top. It’s sweet and savoury and it will warm you from the inside out.
Grilled Madeira, a traditional English dish, is a rich, buttery sponge cake with honey mascarpone, fresh strawberries and coconut and is the perfect choice when you feel like something a little sweeter.
For the healthy breakfast lovers, the Rainbow Bowl is filled with sautéed kale, asparagus, green beans, roasted pumpkin, beets, cherry tomatoes, red cabbage and black sesame rolled poached eggs.
Last but certainly not least try the Quinoa Crusted Chicken Burger with slaw and house pickles. It comes with a side of chips – the Smiths crisp kind – for a unique crunchy spin on your lunchtime burger.
All in all, the new menu is perfectly balanced with a long list of delicious choices that you should definitely hot foot it down to try.
As a pre-launch bonus, small takeaway coffees are only $2 Monday to Friday from 6am to 8am until the 1st of April.
HOURS: Monday to Friday 6am to 2.30pm. Saturday and Sunday 6am to 3pm.
LOCATION: 43 Alfred Street, Mermaid Beach
