Botero House is a popular coffee haunt in the city serving boutique coffee and top-notch seasonal fare from a stunning three-story historic building on Adelaide Street.
Customers can enjoy several blends of boutique coffee by Botero, roasted in the village of Maclean in Northern NSW, along with single origins in the inviting, industrial, chic space featuring high ceilings and exposed brick walls, with dining areas provided across three levels.
The seasonal menu focuses on fresh ingredients with breakfast fare ranging from the Botero Classic (poached eggs on sourdough with beetroot relish) and avocado and goats cheese on wholegrain, to truffled mushrooms on sourdough, and for something sweet and savoury - French toast with banana, yoghurt, ice-cream, mixed berry coulis and bacon.
Lunch dishes include share plates like house-made falafel with minted labneh, chicken lollipops, and prawn and avocado arancini; while more substantial fare consists of orecchiette pasta with sauteed mushrooms, mascarpone, truffle and parmesan, sticky pork belly with kimchi, watercress, and apple and thyme salad, and sesame soy marinated beef rump with vermicelli noodles and Asian salad.
In addition, there's a selection of gourmet sandwiches and wraps, seasonal salads, and sweet treats such as espresso brownies, bliss balls and popcorn donuts.
