time for another update. took my girlfriend to dolcini for brekky for her 30th, the other day. booked an outdoor table in the sun. ok, no sun (until a little later), so it was a little cool; but at least it ostensibly avoided the blaring radio. play music, sure. but who needs to hear ads, while in a cafe? (and I'm in advertising.) ordered eggs florentine with smoked salmon; benedict, with double-smoked ham. in both cases, the eggs were delicately poached: perfectly formed, snowy-white and cherubic, oozing rich, orange-yellow yolks. the almon should've been warmed over slightly, but was high-quality and sat flat, on top of excellent seven-seed sourdough. presentation was excellent. mind you, if you specify doubt-smoked ham on the menu, it's not ok to execute with bacon, no matter how lean. not without checking, anyway. this quibble aside, it was all very fine. service was very good, for the most part, too. guava & mint and apple, lemon and mint juices were good, also. importantly, my large long black was both hot and strong, as requested. and my partner was complimentary of her cappuccino, notwithstanding a heavyhanded dusting of chocolate. it's still a little expensive, but f this quality proves consistent, we'll be back more often : ) a big lift in their game since I first went there. though I'm still not game to venture the 'italian omelette' again, quite yet.
