Book in for brekkie at Criniti’s Kotara
The long-time favourite Italian foodie joint situated at The Rooftop at Westfield Kotara has been busily preparing its newest offering; breakfast!
Officially launching on the 11th of August, Criniti’s has been injecting itself into Newcastle’s already bustling brunch scene with its deliciously curated collection of breakfast dishes available from Friday to Sunday, 8.30am-11.30am.
The authentic southern Italian restaurant is keeping with their foodie roots, with a selection of breakfast dishes nodding towards their Italian core but including a selection of your typical Aussie favourites.
So, where to start?
As per usual, Criniti’s Breakfast menu is just as jam-packed as all of their menus. Starting with their Bruschetta and Egg-based meals, there are nine dishes to peruse just from this one section on the menu!
Our top picks would have to start off with the perfect mix of Aussie and Italian flavours with the Avo & Eggs Bruschetta, the Monte Cristo Bruschetta, Fig & Ricotta Bruschetta, and Crinitis Bruschetta; all served on woodfired Italian bread.
Next on the menu, you’ve got a whole section dedicated to pancakes. Whether you’re a sweet or savoury person, Criniti’s breakfast menu has a pancake for you! If you love a bit of OTT when it comes to your meal, you can’t go past the Oreo Pancakes; you’ll get to devour thick pancakes topped with crumbled Oreo, chocolate wafer, strawberries, vanilla gelato, and vanilla Anglaise.
It wouldn’t be an Australian breakfast menu without a selection of big breakfast dishes and omelettes; think a selection of dishes featuring all the favourite breakfast ingredients; eggs, avocado, mushrooms, Italian sausages, hashbrowns, tomato, halloumi, and more!
If we’ve still not managed to get you excited about a Criniti’s breakfast dish yet, we’ve still not finished! The team have also created a bunch of other favourites including the Healthy Breaky, Egg on Plant, Granola Fruit Bowl, Mediterranean Hot Pot, and the iconic Breakfast Burger.
It’s not a true breakfast experience without guzzling down a beverage or two. You can, of course, expect your typical coffee offerings, but it’s their shakes, loaded thick shakes, protein smoothies, and fresh juices that will have you coming back time and time again.
Yep, you read that right – Criniti’s has jumped on the Loaded Thickshakes bandwagon and each of them are blooming delicious.
Choose from the Banana Caramel complete with salted caramel, banana, vanilla gelato and milk topped with butterscotch sauce, wafer biscuits, caramelised banana, and marshmallows; the Nutella Bomboloni with Nutella, vanilla gelato & milk topped with a Nutella Bomboloni doughnut; or the Oreo Smash with Oreos, chocolate, vanilla gelato & milk topped with Oreos and whipped cream.
If a freshly squeezed juice is more your thing, Criniti’s has got four delicious mixes to choose from; Green Detox with apple, celery, cucumber, kale, baby spinach, lemon, and ginger; Super Detox with carrot, beetroot, apple, orange, celery, lemon, and ginger; Vitamin C Booster with orange, pineapple, strawberries, lemon, and lime; and lucky last, the Watermelon Breeze with watermelon, coconut water, lemon, and mint.
