I avoid driving in the city like the plague. Even when I’m following my GPS I get very confused. Especially with the current road issues in the city, I don’t know why I even try. But when V & I decided to meet at La Veen on King Street for this weeks Brunch Club, I had to buckle up and head into town. Long story short, I took more than one wrong turn, but it was worth it.

Located on one of the CBD’s fanciest streets, La Veen Coffee and Kitchen oozes style. The dark tiles and fresh wooden furniture is a wonderful pairing, and looks classy and fresh. Greeted by a friendly, hip looking waitress, V and I pulled up a school style chair and inhaled the menu. Both breakfast and lunch options are available till late afternoon, but I already knew exactly what I wanted. I had my heart set on smoked salmon (strange cravings) and La Veen had various options to satisfy my needs.

I went with the The Rosti ($17). Perfectly poached eggs, zesty avocado smash, smoked salmon and potato rosti drizzled with balsamic glaze. Mmm. Flavour explosion at first bite. The balsamic added a slightly sweet taste and complemented the meal perfectly. The rosti was delicate, yet crunchy. I just wanted more. And there is nothing better than a perfect poached egg. Craving satisfied. I was in food heaven, no wonder the King Street eatery is very popular.

V opted for the Slow Cooked Eggs Florentine ($14). Served with olive ciabatta, spinach, bƩchamel and hollandaise, the dish smelt delicious. V gave La Veen a four out of five rating, so his brunch must have been great.

La Veen’s drinks menu is very extensive, and we both decided on juices and coffee. My Strawberry, Apple & Ginger Juice was fruity, sweet with that ginger kick. V’s juice sounded just that little bit too healthy for me, and featured kale and beetroot. It photographed beautifully though!

For the coffee, I went with my usual Long Mac with soy milk. I’m not sure if it was because I was going between the sweet juice and the coffee, but I found my brew slightly bitter. Next time I’ll just have a coffee on its own and see how I go.

All in all a wonderful morning. If I can psych myself up enough to drive into the city again I’ll definitely be back.

Where is the furthest you’ll go for a good breakfast?
