Vivo cafe & restaurant, George St, Sydney

Vivo cafe & restaurant, George St, Sydney
Friday 27 January, 2006

We were looking for a midway point between The Rocks and Town Hall, preferably on George St. I racked my brains for a cafe style destination and only one sprung to mind - Vivo.

This was our coffee shop of choice when I worked in the vicinity many years ago and I didn't know if it still existed - but thankfully it does. It was packed outside with a handful of vacant tables inside. We were greeted and shown to our table by a pleasant staff member who promptly took our drinks orders.

The menu is quite extensive with lots of turkish bread options, salads, lighter meals and main meals e.g. risotto, chicken breast etc. There's definitely something for everyone. We ordered a range of lunch options, chicken caeser salad, chicken schnitzel on turkish, vegetable linguine and a vegetarian turkish.
All the meals were good. I enjoyed the Chicken caesar salad - it had a poached egg on top with a decent piece of chicken and chicken pieces throughout the salad. It was large and I felt like I wasn't making a dint in it.

Everyone enjoyed their meals. It's probably a little more expensive than you would normally expect to pay at a cafe for lunch (the Chicken caesar salad was $18) however the service was really good and you are smack bang in the centre of town.
