Kimbo is an Italian-American restaurant offering heartwarming, comfort food in a relaxing yet elegant atmosphere. From breakfast to dinner, to a chat over coffee and dessert, you will surely find something to please your mouth and soul.
We arrived around noon just in time for a big brunch and started with the Authentic Breakfast. This consisted of two sunny side up eggs on a layer of sourdough bread accompanied by slices of turkey and beef bacon, mini portions of cream cheese, labneh, honey and jam along with a freshly baked plain croissant. All breakfast choices come served with a green salad on the side.
Next up we delved into a dish of creamy Polenta topped with two poached eggs, garnished with sautéed mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, and sprinkled with chia seeds for a final nutritious touch. The polenta was a pleasant surprise, tasty and loaded with flavor – highly recommend.
We were served one more breakfast dish, the Salmon Poach. Smoked salmon on a layer of sourdough bread topped with two poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and capers. We enjoyed an Almond Croissant with a nice warm cup of coffee to wrap up our lovely brunch. We also sampled the Popcorn Latte, a signature Kimbo drink consisting of popcorn syrup, coffee and milk. A tad sweet, we were still amused by the taste of popcorn syrup.
