Located in the heart of Leederville, Sayers has long been an institution for their food and coffee. It’s been a long time since I was last at Sayers for breakkie and was excited to head there for a quick birthday lunch with Elwyn after smashing two gym sessions.
You can’t leave Sayers without ordering coffee. I had my favourite, the honeycomb affogato. I still remembered my first experience trying the honeycomb affogato which brings back lots of memories. Smooth in texture with hints of crunch and sweet flavors from the honeycomb. It’s unlike any affogato I have tried.
I had the gin cured salmon, fennel, orange, radish, lemon, crème fraiche salad ($22.50). It’s a bright, colourful dish which shouts summer. The ingredients complement well with each other making it a refreshing salad, perfect for a warm summer’s day. It’s a lovely combination of fresh and sweet with a touch of cream.
Elwyn had the roasted barramundi, mint pea, smoked bacon, artichoke puree ($27.50). In contrast to the summery salad I had, Elwyn’s dish resembled the colder seasons as it’s a heartier dish. It’s bursting full of strong flavors which stands alone individually from the mint pea and smoked bacon, artichoke puree and roasted barramundi. The barramundi itself however is cooked well, leaving a hint of crispy-ness on the skin.
It’s great to be back once again at Sayers and I would love head back to try their breakfast menu. With the quality of the food, it is no doubt that Sayers will still remain as the place to be in Leederville for a catch up over coffee and food.
