[AUS] Coffee Pitt

Sunday, July 01, 2012

The first brunch upon reaching Sydney, it was definitely a great one to kick-start my trip hunting for good all-day breakfasts! Drawn to Coffee Pitt because of its cosy space and coffee aroma, it was definitely a great choice that got me going back and salivating for its eggs benedict till date. 

A simple yet appealing ambience.

Probably the best coffee on Pitt Street! But then again, I haven't had the chance to try all of them. 

Large Green Tea Latte (AUD 4.50)

If you like Starbucks' green tea latte, then you gotta love this! A surprisingly good brew with strong green tea infused, yet it doesn't overpower the senses. Great mix of milk and green tea, it was of the appropriate level of sweetness. Every sip was just so great that they probably need to have a Super Large sized available! 

Small Latte (AUD 3.50)

Classic latte, it pales in comparison to the green tea latte. Well, leaving the comparisons aside, it was abit too milky and wasn't able to bring out the coffee flavour in it. 

Large Mocha (AUD 4.50)

Easily mistaken as hot chocolate, it was lacking in the coffee mix as well. Thought it wasn't worth the price especially if you're looking for a cuppa coffee in the morning to perk you up!

Traditional Eggs Benedict on Bacon (AUD 11.90) 

One of the best eggs benedict I've tried, it was the perfect classic combination. Very well-done poached eggs with golden egg yolk oozing out and blending in with the warm hollandaise sauce, it definitely satisfied the savory taste buds. Together with the slightly toasted bacon and sourdough bread, it gave different textures that complemented very well with the runny egg yolk and sauce. A great dish of eggs ben, I must say! 

Nom Factor: 8.5/10

Traditional Eggs Benedict on Smoked Salmon (AUD 12.90)

After trying the really good smoked salmon eggs ben at Choupinette, I decided to give this a shot. It affirmed my previous perception of how smoked salmon doesn't really go well with eggs ben (all the time) because of its texture. With the runny egg and smoothness of the sauce, the smoked salmon was a tad too slimey to add on to the already runny taste of the combination, making it a bit overwhelming. Perhaps I was being too picky, I usually prefer a mix of different textures to complement my meal in order to have variety. 

It was still a dish that was very well-done in my opinion, just a matter of different preferences. Fans of smoked salmon should try this as they're extremely generous with their servings of salmon! I usually do not fancy smoked salmon but this was really nicely done up without an overpowering taste. 

Nom Factor: 8.0/10  


A known brand in Australia, where they pride themselves on sourcing for the best beans. You can spot them with their specialty stores and queues in major shopping malls. 

It was so good that I went back on my last day to enjoy my warm cuppa coffee while walking along the streets in winter time. It was sheer bliss! 

With great food and ambience, it drew me back into the stores. A place perfect for catching up and even nestling up with a great read in hand, it definitely made an impression on me, having high expectations of the vibrant cafe culture in Sydney!
