Sayers has been on my list for quite some time so I was very excited to finally make it to this busy spot in Leederville.
We arrived just on time to only have to wait a few minutes for a table. Thankfully we got a high table as those along the wall were quite squashed and it was a little chilly outside…we were being fussy but it kept us happy!
We were handed two menus and the dilemma began.
I was torn between the Potato Rosti ($19.50) the Smoked Salmon ($20.50) and the Saffron Doughnuts ($16.50). I normally steer clear of sweet dishes when it comes to breakfast and I nearly went with the Saffron Doughnuts but changed my mind last minute and went for the Smoked Salmon.
Ms. D saw the Potato Rosti ($19.50) go by and debated between that and the Spicy Italian Sausage ($19.50), she went with the Potato Rosti in the end.
I ordered a large Latte and Ms. D went for her usual Flat White. Ordering took quite awhile as there was only one person taking orders at the till, in saying that, the customer service was great as the waitress asked how my morning was!
The coffee was great. We watched the barista work her coffee art magic on the coffees before they were served. Maybe she guessed that I was Irish…that’s a bit of a giveaway as to which one was mine as many people mix up a shamrock and a clover.
How amazing does the Smoked Salmon look! After I cleared away the unnecessary green, I got to the main part of the dish. I hesitated on ordering this dish as I’m not a huge scrambled egg fan, however, I quite liked how Sayers did theirs. The eggs were topped with the feta cheese, I had imagined it combined into the scrambled eggs during the cooking process. There was a very generous serving of salmon, which I love, and the tartlet was fresh but a little dry. The serving of asparagus was small considering the menu mentioned asparagus tartlet. Overall, I still enjoyed the dish but I am undecided as to whether I would order it again.
Ms. D was more than happy with her Potato Rosti. It looked visually appealing and to be honest, I was a little jealous as I know I would have enjoyed it too. However, I don’t see the point in the rocket added to the op of the dish, it was unnecessary but it was not a key point to the dish.
All elements mentioned on the menu description were very present on the dish except the lemon scented wilted spinach. The rosti itself was light, fluffy and well seasoned and you can see the thick line of onion jam running through the middle. The bacon was well cooked and the eggs were well poached with a runny yolk. Ms. D polished off the dish and left feeling very full, which was the purpose of the visit.
If you are keen to try out Sayers in Leederville, an early visit is definitely best. Breakfast is only served until 11.30am Monday to Saturday but served until 2pm on Sunday.
Also in the area is Foam Cafe and this is one of many cafes in Leederville.
