Bartolo’s innovative and delicious brunches

With exciting cocktail offerings and delicious fare, Bartolo’s is the go-to place for brunch on weekends

Currently nominated for Best Host and Best Cocktail List in the 2019 Bartender Magazine Australian Bar Awards (placing them in the top 10 venues in Australia), Bartolo has one of the most innovative (and delicious) brunch cocktails menus in Sydney. There is, of course, the classic Bloody Mary, because what would a boozy weekend brunch be without one – however, there are also some more unusual suspects on the menu at Bartolo. 


On the menu, guests can find a variation on the typical mimosa found on most brunch menus, with a twist on the Puccini – this one using a house-made mandarin cordial blended with prosecco. Using a cordial means you still get that delicious fresh citrus taste to start your morning but without the pulp and density of a mimosa. Or start your day another Italian way, with the Garibaldi – Campari and grapefruit (or orange) transports you to the south of Italy with a single sip.


Bartolo hasn’t forgotten about Sydney’s die-hard coffee lovers and has got you covered with the ‘Coffee Break’ cocktail. This delicious creation, courtesy of Grazia Di Franco, is made up of Manchino Vermouth Chinato, Bruto Americano Bitter, Gabriel Coffee, Strawberry and PS40 Bush Tonic – the perfect pick-me-up.


Of course, no brunch is complete without an outstanding bite to eat. Bartolo’s weekly rotating brunch menu served every Saturday and Sunday ensures guests can always expect to try something different. Some highlights from previous brunches include Nan’s meatballs with poached eggs and toasted focaccia; brioche with apple and rhubarb, vanilla mascarpone, hazelnuts and bee pollen; spaghettoni alla carbonara; poached egg and pecorino; and blackcurrant and nut porridge with rhubarb compote, fresh berries, pistachios and honey… As we said, it’s a pretty spectacular brunch!
