Mrs S Revisit

Its hard not to love Mrs S, their charming cafe and vintage inspired decor just give off good vibes, and their food, well that’s just something else again. We haven’t been here for some time and it was about time we headed back over for a revisit. As always the coffee here was great. It just has so much flavour, was a good strength, smooth and creamy. A wonderful morning brew. Mrs S’s style favours dishes like this lovely cardamom rice pudding, because it’s a mix of delicate and nuanced flavours with the potential for artistic presentation just like this. There is a lovely combination of flavours and textures with the pudding, black sesame crisp, dates, nuts and coconut. There’s a subtle sweetness to the dish, and its light but filling. We were really impressed with the rice pudding, it was the heart of the dish and it wasn’t gluggy or overly firm as rice puddings can so often be. The crunch of the sesame crisp was perfect to top off a fabulous and unique …

Chapels on Whatley Revisit

Chapel’s on Whatley is a beautiful, oriental styled cafe on Whatley Crescent in Maylands. It has a welcoming atmosphere, helped both by the wooden decor and artwork, as well as the friendly staff. We sat at a table overlooking the windows onto the street, giving us a view of the stylish interior and the outside world. The chairs are particularly beautiful, but not the most comfortable. Our favourite part of coming to Chapels has always been their bottomless tea for $5.50. Yep you read that right, as much tea, and as many types of tea as you desire for only $5.50 within 2 hours. You can even buy your favourites to take home on your way out. We ordered a couple of pots to share and the owner was kind enough to suggest that he bring out the new pot when he noticed we were low. The owner was lovely, happy to help in any way he could, and his passion and genuine love of tea and the food they serve here was obvious. The …

Get Milk’d, Maylands

for the love of the bacon stack Have you ever had an experience that you can’t wait to revisit, that you enjoy so much that you go back again and again and again? Well this is how we experienced the Milk’d bacon stack at a time where we were only just discovering the wonders of breakfasting. We’d go once a week and could never bring ourselves to order anything else from the menu, and after a long hiatus we once again headed to Milk’d in Maylands for our bacon stack fix. The cafe was much the same since out last visit, nice and open, white walls some plastered in posters, and a mix of furniture. The staff are friendly and you order at the counter. As always we went for a couple of lattes and two bacon stacks, concerned at the lack of variety we also justified ordering mango and coconut bread to share. The coffee came surprisingly quickly, it had a nice flavour and good microfoam but it was just too hot to drink. …
