I recently had an opportunity to try some of the brunch offerings at Yaletown’s Sciue Italian Bakery Caffe where we enjoyed a mix of breakfast and lunch dishes.
It’s the Italian way to start off with coffee and that is what I did with this Cortado. You could also start off the morning with a cocktail if that’s your preference as they offer a complete lineup of Italian cocktails.
Nutella Bombolene – this an Italian donut filled with nutella and it’s very popular here often sold out before 10 am, so go early.
Ciambella – looks like a sugared donut but its the texture and flavour that will capture your heart.
French Toast with masacapone – their classic house-baked sourdough, topped with mascapone with maple syrup on the side was delicious.
Cornetti with salmon – until now I had no idea what this was, it’s basically a croissant sandwich with smoked salmon and frisee stuffed in between the flakey pastry.
Uova Al Tegamino – a classic Italian dish with two sunny side-up eggs, signature meatball baked into a cast iron skillet and tomato sauce, topped with mozzarella and parmigiano. Served with roasted potatoes and toast.
Avocado Salad – one of their popular lunch salads.
Italia Grilled Sandwich -its like an Italian caprese salad in sandwich form with spinach, roma tomato and boccocini.
Brunch is offered daily from 8am -3pm.
