Sprouting up across Sydney and Melbourne is the adorably named Piccolo Me chain of cafes. Each location has its own distinct personality, albeit with the distinctive yellow and black Piccolo Me brand.
The North Rocks menu entices diners with a range of gourmet burgers, loaded fries, nachos, salads and their famed desserts, plus an ￼encyclopaedia of drink options.
Feeling fancy, we had the taro latte, and went tropical with the Pineapple Express fruit smoothie, a refreshing blend of pineapple, mango, kiwi fruit and strawberry.
A salt & pepper squid salad is given an Asian twist with slaw, fried onions, crunchy noodles and fresh chilli with a sticky Japanese dressing.
The Piccolo Me Burger is stacked high with a beef patty, American cheddar, bacon, lettuce, pickles and Piccolo Me’s special sauce, and although it comes with shoestring fries you’ll want to add a side of super crunchy waffle fries.
At last count there are now over 25 venues where you can get Piccolo’d, their quirky catch cry to express joy; And there’s plenty to be pleased about with a visit to Piccolo Me, whether that be for breakfast, lunch or takeaway.
