7-Days of bang on brekkie at The Duxton

The Duxton has been on our hit-list ever since winning ‘Best Steak’ at the Australian Hospitality Awards, excitingly we were invited to visit, but to our surprise we were sampling the new 7-days breakfast menu, launching Friday 20 September. Evidently the venue has mastered its quality pub offerings – also being recognised for the best ‘Draught Beer Quality’ at the AHA Awards – so making a bang-on breakfast accessible throughout the entire week appears to be their next feat.

From Pizza Gusto, to Pialligo Urban and the drinking holes along the strip all offering pizza as well, we were surprised (and delighted) to hear Grease Monkey was getting a pizza oven. This transformation required them to build an entire new kitchen for their specialty oven ensuring each pizza is cooked for six minutes.
