WE ventured into Geelong West one cool Sunday morning for my wife’s birthday brunch and booked a table at Zigfrids for eight.
It’s a big place – light and airy – and I imagined it would be a terrific spot for a drink on a nice afternoon or evening. There were only two other diners when we were there, so things were quiet.
Our friendly waitress took our drink orders and although everything took a while to come out, my strong skinny flat white was superb. Being a self-confessed coffee snob, I’d actually travel to have coffee here – it was that good.
The menu was limited for children’s options, but a few of us were looking forward to the waffle benedict, only to be told that it was unavailable. Disappointment.
I settled for simple scrambled eggs on sourdough. It was tasty and the eggs were cooked nicely. Others in our party had coconut pancakes, bacon and eggs and the Zigfrids breakfast sandwich. Nobody left unhappy or hungry. Food and drink service was slow, but that just meant I could order a second cup of that delicious coffee.
Our waitress was friendly and although some items were unavailable, which seemed odd given it was the Sunday of the Australia Day weekend, we had a good meal.
Prices were reasonable and I would love to return, especially for the coffee or for evening drinks on a warm night.
