I lived in Cairns for a short time almost twenty years ago. Back then it was a sleepy tropical town full of old Queenslander houses and the occasional hotel. Now it is quite the metropolis with a fabulous esplanade complete with a swimming pool and loads of fancy shops.
There are also many restaurants to feed tourists and having Italy on my mind, on the day I was flying back home, I set out to find an italian inspired breakfast.
Perrotta’s, on the corner of Abbott and Shields Street did not disappoint – fresh ricotta, roasted tomato and basil on bruschetta with basil oil . It went perfectly with my strong cappuccino. I still miss Melbourne coffee however the bruschetta (note – pronunciation is brusketta!) was just lovely, even in the tropical climate of Cairns.
What is your favorite Italian style breakfast?
