About The Brooding Italian

Kiama locals get their café groove on at The Brooding Italian on Manning Street. This cool espresso bar is where friends gather for an aromatic coffee and bite to eat in cosy surrounds, styled with recycled timber, reclaimed floorboards and a centre light fitting salvaged from an old satellite dish. Hanging Edison light bulbs cast a golden glow as guests soak up a friendly and cheery vibe, whether stopping by for breakfast or lingering over a leisurely lunch. Perhaps begin with Italian eggs – scrambled eggs with prosciutto, tomato, basil and hollandaise sauce on sourdough, or go straight to all-day lunch options like the parmy crusted chicken burger with housemade pesto on a Brioche bun, served with Italian fries. Those time poor can take a wrap to go, with plenty of hearty choices.
