La Veen, has long been on my brunch hit-list. I’d heard the hip inner city café, found in a heritage listed building on King Street, serves up some of the city’s best brunch and coffee. I needed to check this out for myself!
The dining area of the café is compact, so be prepared to get close to the person on the next table. Service is friendly and prompt.
The five senses coffee is delicious and smooth.
I chose an XO “Popsicle” tea of hibiscus, peppermint, elderflower, guava and strawberry. This combo was sweet and refreshingly delicious.
I absolutely adored the dish I picked – a crisp potato rosti ($23), topped with an avocado smash, two runny poached eggs and crisp thick cut bacon.
My Dad enjoyed the avo smash ($16) with beetroot and Danish feta.
Little Chef ordered the adult sized “eggs your way” (we helped him out!). LC’s favourite way is scrambled. He also chose extras which included mushrooms, chorizo and crispy bacon.
La Veen is definitely worth paying a visit if when you happen to be in the city. I did find the prices a little on the high side, but the drinks and food are all high quality. If you love a bustling atmosphere, a trendy brunch and great coffee, this spot is for you.
