Nick's Coffee Bar, Melbourne

I'm quite a fan of Italian food. But breakfast isn't really a strength. Apart from coffee and bomboloni, it's slim pickings at the start of the day. Then again, who's gonna complain about a big fat custard donut and a creamy cappucino first thing in the morning? Not me.

Problem was, Nick's - 207 Queen Street, Melbourne, Tel +61 3 9670 4506 - didn't have any bomboloni, and the coffee was really quite average. So I took a risk and ordered some eggs.

To my surprise, the scrambled eggs were pretty good... nice and creamy without being too rich or wet. The bacon was good too. And for six (or maybe eight) bucks, it was pretty good value.

As for the rest of the menu, it seems that Nick is rather fond of ham and cheese. There's a Spuntino Grill with ham and cheese; an omelette with ham, cheese and tomato; ham and cheese on toast; and a ham and cheese croissant... Franco-Italian fusion food, anyone?

Without the lunchtime crowd of suits and lawyers, breakfast at Nick's is a bit of a sterile experience. Take away all the people and you start to notice the 70s pine furniture. Retro.

10/20 "no bomboloni?"

Dear Sir/Madam,

The egg was badly cooked and the waiter was not patient in taking orders and I was taken as guest from my company.

Less quantity and hefty price and average breakfast and a noisy ambiance.

Went to the bar and its out of stock with most of demanding scotchs-Single Malt.

Extremely expensive price for nothing at all.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
