Breakfast at Italianni’s

with 4 comments

If only they sold jewelry, someone would have created a movie out of it. Okay, fine. I’m being funny here. But two months ago, I graced the invitation by the Bistro Group’s family member Italianni’s at their Bonifacio High Street branch to savor their newest addition to their already sumptuous food – breakfast items.

At first I was taken aback when they said to meet at Italianni’s at 9:00 AM. Don’t they open starting lunch hours? Until someone mentioned “breakfast.” Oh, okay. Pizza and pasta for breakfast. That’s new. Hahaha! What a surprise.

Italianni’s has always been iconic because not only was it a date place for me and my former better half and a regular Sunday lunch with my late dad and our holy family, we even held the party for the christening of my eldest child and daughter Cara at their very first branch at what now is Greenbelt-4, which was then beside Mario’s and Wienerwald renamed Schwarzwälder. See how stories can be retold a thousand times? Italianni’s has a great history in my life.

Of course, the first thing I looked for was Eggs Benedict and there it was, together with more than a dozen varieties of Continental breakfast items and ala carte, to wit:

  • Hi-Fiber Oatmeal
  • Italianni’s Waffle
  • Spam and Eggs (breakfast wouldn’t be complete without Spam!)
  • 3-Egg Omelette
  • Classic Eggs Benedict
  • Eggs Benedict Adobo
  • American Platter
  • Western Platter
  • Pancake and Sausage
  • Fruit Platter
  • Arroz Ala Cubana
  • Vegetarian Arroz Caldo
  • Arroz Caldo Supreme
  • Chicken Teriyaki
  • Champorado
  • Spicy Tuyo Fillet
  • Sardines in Olive Oil
  • Smoked Salted Bangus
  • Chicken and Pork Adobo
  • Beef Steak
  • Crispy Bacon
  • Pork Tocino
  • Primera Tapa
  • Vigan-style Longanisa
  • Boneless Bangus Belly
  • Filipino Platter
  • Chocolate Mango Crepe
  • Peaches and Cream Crepe
  • Spinach Mushroom Feta Crepe
  • Tuna Lemon Mayo Crepe
  • Tomato and Basil Crepe
  • Chicken Pesto Shitake Crepe
  • Lotsa Muffins, Croissants, Ensaymada and Bibingka
  • And breakfast creations by Chef Josh Boutwood


I took a bite at most of the main breakfast items the group ordered and like the taste buds of all the Italianni’s chefs since the 90s, I like them all. Of course, I ordered the Eggs Benedict Adobo for myself (No sharing! Hahaha!) and it was superb. I think most of the main items are served with complimentary coffee.

I’ve been to Italianni’s during its breakfast hours three times already, twice telling my business colleagues to meet there than another usual (and drab) coffee shop. So, for those of you having reached this paragraph reading my short story, it’s time head on to Italianni’s at Bonifacio High Street or Greenbelt 3 as these are the only two branches they serve breakfast. It’s probably because some of their locations are inside the mall which usually opens near lunch time.
