Bruschetteria 102, Surry Hills

I have heard wonderful things about this place. It is where Café Ish used to be before they moved to their new location. No guessing what Bruschetteria 102 specialize in, bruschetta of course, and Nutella coffee – that’s right, you heard right – NUTELLA COFFEE!

I came here one weekend with two of our dearest friends, S and her hubby, T. They recently got back from their honeymoon and we hadn’t seen them for a while. I love the layout of this café, everything in this café is for sale, the tables, the chairs, the fans and the lights. If you see a price tag on the item, then you can purchase them.

I love the place mats – so bright and colourful!

I couldn’t go pass the Nutella coffee ($4.50). Nutella and coffee – two of my favourite things combined together, INGENIOUS! As much as it was absolutely delicious, it was a little sweet for my liking, as I like my coffee without sugar or any sweetness.

A small cup was not enough and had to order another, I was on a high. I love the patterns on each individual coffee. The coffee had a hazelnut flavour which was just lovely. I could have easily drunk four cups on my own.

As the name suggests, Bruschetteria 102 offers a wide range of bruschettas, ranging from savoury to sweet. I couldn’t go pass the capricciosa – smoked salmon, boiled eggs, red onions and tomatoes ($14). Two generous servings of smoked salmon, boiled eggs on toasted bread on top of a wooden plank were placed before me. It looked absolutely divine and tasted more than divine. The crusty bread was crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside. I love smoked salmon and I love egg – the perfect breakfast combination!

T opted for the Uova e Verdure – grilled vegetables with scrambled eggs ($10.50). I almost ordered this, grilled sun dried tomatoes, zucchinis, capsicum on a bed of scrambled eggs. It looked good, and T devoured this, so I can only assume that he enjoyed it.

‘The Mother’ had the homemade pasta served with 2 slices of toast with garlic and pesto ($20). I love homemade pasta – only because I am too lazy to make it myself at home. The homemade pasta was tender and cooked with perfection. Served with tomatoes and buffalo cheese, this was just incredible. It ‘looks’ small but it was definitely filling. ‘The Mother’ absolutely loved this, he kept giving me stares (unpleasant stares) as I kept asking for more.

S had the crepe like lasagna, thin slices of crepes with vegetables ($20). It had a strong walnut and cheese flavour. I had a couple of mouthfuls of this and did not eat any walnut, S, on the other hand, each mouthful she had consisted of walnuts. Unfortunately she is not a massive fan of walnuts, so didn’t enjoy it as much. It was good, a little too heavy and cheesy for breakfast but it was certainly hearty and perfect for a wintery day.

I was tempted to order some desserts but my stomach was definitely saying no! It’s such cute little venue, service is friendly and fantastic and food is stupendous.

Check out the huge 5kgs tub of Nutella – I could easily eat this by the spoonful whilst watching tv! Dangerous!!

Apparently they change their menu according to season so will definitely be back again.

Had a wonderful time catching up with both S and T – thanks for listening to all my cumbersome problems!

    Ahh interesting to hear about the new tenants. Nutella coffee does sound very sweet. I do like the sound of that homemade pasta. Buffalo mozzarella is awesome.
