Zumbo Cafe is a brand new concept by Adriano Zumbo located in the same location as Fancy Nance and Little Franky. Reachable both by public transport such as tram and trains or car.

I was so excited when zumbo announced on their Instagram, they are giving away free breakfast for 5 days. Every morning from 7-8am starting the 4th July till the 8th. I decided to come in on their second day, arrived at 7.05 am and have to wait for a table around 30 minutes.

We start the meal with some coffee and tea both served hot which I appreciate in this cold morning. The coffee was a bit sloppy and burnt.

Breakfast Burger - house made milk bun with streaky bacon, smoked mozzarella, pancetta, fried egg, ragu, fresh ricotta ($18.5). The bun came in a bit cold to our table and the burger it self was pretty decent but nothing special.

Baked Eggs - ragu, cheese, tomatoes, mascarpone, rocket, toast ($18). It was tasty and nicely mixed, what I love the most is the ragu. They are really delicious. The portion was a bit small and I would appreciate if they toast the bread.

Ricotta Pancakes - yoghurt, fresh berries, honey, verbena, vanilla chantilly ($17.5). This is their most popular menu. The pancake was moist and the fresh berries mixed in nicely with the honey, yoghurt and vanilla.

There was a very long wait for the food and the service was really slow and frantic. I think they needed more staff to accommodate the crowd. Overall, It was a nice experience waking up in the morning for a free breakfast by Zumbo.
