I finally got to go to breakfast at Sayers the other day. I had been years ago and had a really lovely time and since then I had wanted to head back. I finally got the opportunity early one week day and braved the cold weather and raced from my car into the warmth of this welcoming little café. An ever popular feature of the Leederville café scene, with long lines a common sight on the weekends, thankfully it wasn’t overly full when I arrived just after 7 and met up with my fellow breakfast crew on this particular morning.
Quite an interesting menu they have available for breakfast. There’s your standards – eggs, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, muesli, etc, but as well as that there’s more some elaborate options – coriander and cumin beans tagine, babaganoush, poached egg and sourdough or beetroot curred salmon open omelette, baked ricotta, toasted rugbrod (rye) and poached pear salad. They all sounded great!
I kept things fairly simple on this visit – free range poached eggs on toasted extra virgin olive oil ciabatta ($11) with a side serve of red capsicum relish ($3). Now don’t get me wrong, they were nice eggs and lovely crispy bread, but the star of the dish by far and away was the relish. Added a punchy burst of flavour, which made the whole experience a little more special.
So this is only a brief review of my visit. I’d liked it, but I think if I headed back on the weekend I would be slightly bolder with my selection and I suspect this would give me a more solid appreciation for Sayers fare.
Tis a lovely spot and staff had been really friendly and the range of cakes that were available by the time I left looked just incredible and I suspect will definitely see me head back soon. You can have cake for breakfast right?
