In the spirit of casual European eateries Benzina is about simplicity and quality: stools and brown paper coverings on the outdoor tables under the trees, well-brewed coffee from Milton’s The Odyssey Project and a small breakfast selection unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere in Brisbane.
Stars of the menu are the Mediterranean Morning Pizzetta – wood-fired pizzetta with organic free range eggs, tomato, fior di latte, spinach and pancetta or ham – and the Benzina Breakfast – wood-fired crispy pancetta, organic free range egg, panuzzo bread (a type of flat pizza bread), rocket, avocado, tomato and lemon.
In addition there’s a range of Fired Panuzzo or Gluten Free Piadina Wraps with everything from Nutella and Banana to Mozzarella, Ham, Tomato and Rocket or Capsicum, Mesculin, Mozzarella and Tomato with Ricotta.
For something non-pizza, Benzina also offer a delicious Acai Bowl (berries, house granola, banana, mixed seed and shredded coconut), Sweets (Nonno’s Tiramisu, Pear and Ricotta Bread) and a range of bread (baguette, ciabatta, plain or seeded sourdough).
Pots of Tea include English Breakfast, Masala Chai, Gunpowder Green, Earl Grey and Peppermint and Cold Drinks include Iced teas,, latte, Matcha, Mocha and Milkshakes, Italian mineral waters and healthy Cold pressed Juices (recommended is Johnny’s Morning Glory – coconut water, apple, pineapple, coconut yoghurt and chia seeds).
