Communiti launches a weekend breakfast menu with options such as Beef Patties and Spanish Omelette
It's December and it’s the perfect season for an outdoor breakfast. While the city has quite a few restaurants offering elaborate menus, Communiti, the brewery on Residency Road, just launched its weekend breakfast and we simply had to check it out.
We headed to the restaurant on a pleasant Saturday morning for a preview. We sat in the alfresco area, right outside the bakery, watching some of our breads being baked by the expert chefs.
The limited but well-curated menu includes a mix of classic omelettes, croissants, waffles, pancakes and muffins. We started with the Chikku Lassi and Avocado Milkshake. The lassi was frothy with the flavour of the fruit coming through quite nicely. But we loved the Avocado Milkshake a little bit more because of its smooth and buttery texture.
We then opted for the TLC Cheese Sandwich and Fried Egg Combo. The former was mashed chickpeas,crunchy lettuce and juicy tomatoes sandwiched between freshly baked bread. A generous addition of cheese elevated the flavours. The combo included two eggs sunny side up, chicken sausages, mushrooms, grilled tomato, roasted potato and baked beans. One cannot go wrong with a classic combination and this dish was no exception.
We then sampled the Spanish Omelette. The omelette, fried with a layer of mashed potatoes, cherry tomatoes, black olives, bell peppers and herbs, was delicious. It was served with a side of chopped lettuce and a slice of bread. We would highly recommend this if you like your omelette with lots of vegetables.

What came next was quite impressive. The Beef Patties and Beef Muffins at Communiti are musttries. The patties, which are actually puffs with a filling of minced beef were hot off the oven, flaky, crumbly and lightly spiced. The muffins too were stuffed with minced beef and freshly baked. The meat was juicy and soft, and the muffin was fluffy and easy to eat.
Our attention then shifted to the pancakes. While there are quite a few options in this section, we tried the Dutch Pancake with Banana. The pancakes, which were larger and thinner than usual, were dotted with slices of caramelised banana and served with sour and whipped cream. The flavour of the fruit blended well with both the sour and whipped cream, making this a winning combination.
This new offering, with delicious and decadent options, is ideal for late risers as it is available until noon.
