This little cafe attached to the City Crown Hotel has gone through a few different incarnations. Negus seems pretty new. Because I had already eaten, I have to turn over this review to Davy. He found their take on an eggs benedict (with a choice of pancetta or salmon) quite original, and he wavered in his opinion. The problem was that it wasn’t that hot, and would have benefited from being served at the right temperature. But he had to say it was pretty delicious, especially the little fried onion bits on top.
The gazpacho seemed like the perfect solution to a big night out. I tasted it and the spices were pretty good, though perhaps it could have had a more concentrated flavour. It had some froth or ice in it or something. Likewise, with my juice, all $9 of it for the large size. I think it had watermelon and ginger and er, something else. Tasty enough but nothing special. The eggs were almost a 4 out of 5, even luke warm, but I think the juices (and price) brings the overall rating down.
