We’ve been wanting to visit Acustico since we first arrived in Brunswick. This place is seriously cool, opening out from the counter out the front to a large open area at the back, full of things to capture the eye and the imagination.The longer you look the more you find to love and appreciate. We settled in at a table and our coffee orders were taken while we perused the menu. The service is quite relaxed, not surprisingly for a casual hide-away as unique as this one.Acustico serve nice coffee, creamy with some richness but a mostly smooth and mellow flavour. Our first selection was the porridge, the special of the day. It came with vanilla, rhubarb and hazelnut. It was a filling and sweet breakfast, but much healthier than many of the meals that have graced these blog pages.
For our next selections we went with the classic eggs on toast and our own add ons.One of these being the poached egg, chorizo and mushroom. We also tried the poached eggs, goats feta and chorizo. The toast was a bit cold but the eggs were well poached and the feta and chorizo just worked. One of our pet peeves is knives that aren’t capable of cutting your meal and we were rather frustrated trying to get through the crusts and chorizo!Finally we also tried the pancakes served with cream and raspberry as well as hazelnuts. It was a little tart and there was more topping than pancake but with a few tweaks this could have been a great dish.
Acustico is a kooky little spot with a lot to love in the heart of Brunswick!
