Vizio is a chic cafe situated downhill from the Kings Cross towards Hyde Park on the right side of the road. It is easy to spot, just look for a bunch of motorbikes parked out the front, it is next door to a motorcycle dealer. This cafe is also a restaurant at night. As you enter to the right is the coffee machine and a range of sweet options and cakes if you are in a hurry. It is recommended to sit in enjoy the slick modern fit out and order from the menu.
I was lucky enough to get a call up from our instafoodie friend Where_do_I_eat_pete. We started with a couple of coffees as it was a Saturday and we were in need of that caffeine fix. The milk based coffee did the trick, with a latte for myself and a flat white for Pete.
After a bit of deliberation on what to order, the crab Benedict was pretty much self chosen. A beautifully presented egg dish, with that rich pastel yellow benedict sauce smothered on top of the poached eggs, beneath the spanner crab meat and asparagus adding a subtle sweetness and flavour of the sea. This served on top of a thick piece of sourdough. This dish is a must order if visiting Vizio.
Both having done a bit of exercise that morning, we decided to share the Earthy Green Bowl, which are all the rage these days. With the usual suspects making an appearance including the kale chips, baby spinach a poached egg and some broccolini, which was nicely cooked and tooped with ginger and crushed almonds for added flavour and texture. This dish certainly looked and tasted healthy.
Vizio is a sophisticated sleek cafe serving quality coffee and a reasonably priced breakfast.
