Piccolo! Is it me you're looking for?
Its always great to eat at a place where the food is as fun as it is delicious. That is Piccolo Me. Started in 2012 by brothers Charlie & Roy Hachem this cafe is a fun filled hotspot full of the most ingenious and tantalising treats to tickle your tastebuds.
Situated in the midst of the always buzzing Macquarie University, Piccolo Me offers a chic social experience with a range of delicious savoury lunch options and some ridiculously good dessert delights.

Cronut with Nutella & Vanilla icecream, strawberries and blueberries.
This was really one of those moments in life where you just have to sit back and say "I am one lucky bastard!" A flakey buttery cronut covered in cinnamon sugar is cut in half, and by the good graces of Roy (and I can only assume some divine power), is filled with vanilla & Nutella iceceam and layered with strawberries and blueberries. Oh my!
Let me tell you a story…One night a Cookie and an Espresso meet at a club. They dirty dance a little until the Espresso builds up the courage and asks "You DTF?". 9 months later a baby was born. They called it Esprookie.
The Esprookie is nifty little creation combining a strong shot of hot expresso into a nutella lined cookie cup. After a minute or two the hot coffee melts and mixes with the nutella giving you a rich hazelnutty caffeine injection with an edible cup to boot!
This is exactly what the doctor ordered. The Nutellagato! Not your average affogato, the Nutella infused icecream is accompanied by a hot espresso shot, chocolate shavings and chopped nuts. Call it a 'sundae', call it an 'affogato', call it what ever you want. Me, I call it 'Delicious'.
Piccolo me is a great place to have a social breaky and lunch or even a sneaky snack between classes. Whatever you're there for, I've found the experience delightful. The staff are friendly and attentive and the range of options available is extensive ranging from burgers to hotdogs, rolls and salads. Check out their other locations in the Sydney CBD and Norwest area for the same great quality eats and friendly service.
