The other week, my fearless weekday breakfast buddies, Z & B had breakfast with me at Von Haus.
Von Haus is a little tricky to find – its in Crossley St, situated behind the Paperback book store and diagonally opposite Italian institution Pellegrinis. The space is dark and quite masculine with heavy wooden furniture and textured stone walls. On the morning we visited it was reasonably quiet and there was a comfortable, relaxed vibe. A few solo diners were reading the papers and tucking into their morning coffees.
On to the breakfast, the menu has a Continental bent and is short and to the point – offerings are mini tarts ($3), danishes ($4), toast ($6-7), fruit bread ($6), croissants ($7-8), muesli ($8) and a boiled egg with soldiers ($8 and a lovely hark back to childhood).
Due to the wheat factor of almost the entire menu, I chose the muesli:
The muesli was nice, the yoghurt was thick and delicious.
B ordered the ham and cheese croissant:
.. which she was happy with.
Coffee was great, service was relaxed and friendly. Given the fairly limited breakfast menu (and the fact that I could only order 1 item from said menu) I don’t imagine I will return to Von Haus for breakfast. Nonetheless, I really liked the place. Von Haus is open all day, right through until the evening and I will definitely be back for a couple of glasses of red and bite to eat. I’ll let you know how I go!
