A has been talking about going to Sayers coffee for a little while. When she mentioned to me that she wanted to go I decided to do a little bit of research and it seems like Sayers is a little bit of institution with many of my favourite bloggers loving this particular restaurant. I took a few hours off on a Friday and we tried out the breakfast offerings here. Read more →
A and I were pretty hungry one morning so i said to her “lets go out and get some breakfast”. The subject of where to go came up and she said that she remembered someone saying that boho espresso in Scarborough serves quite nice food. As we made our way there I also remembered hearing some people saying nice things about it too. Read more →
I had been meaning to catch up with A on Sunday. I was being slightly indecisive with what to do so i left it up to her to choose, her response was “why don’t we go to my favourite breakfast place, it’s this little place tucked in the outskirts of northbridge called tarts cafe”. I agreed on going there, normally I do as much research as possible before going to a restaurant but this time i decided to go to tarts without knowing anything about the menu. Read more →
So it was a Tuesday night and evidently it was one of those nights where we couldn’t come to a decision on what to have for dinner. After talking to my sister when we both got home from work we decided to go out and grab a bite to eat.
My decision on where to go partially came from my food blogging. Fast food burgers are something that I honestly don’t enjoy that much so I wanted to review a place that makes some of the best burgers I have had. This also gives me an opportunity to talk about fast food burgers. Read more →
So we had been meaning to go to Lancelin for a little while. A group of about 8 or us normally go every six to nine months. It is a great opportunity to unwind and catch up with old friends; it’s also a great chance for my friends to go motorbike riding in the dunes. We were due for another getaway so on the weekend we all went away. Read more →
So i had been planning to catch up with sarah and caleb to see their little boy tanner for a while. So i thought what better than a beautiful sunday morning in perth to catch up with them. So numerous phone calls were made back and forth and before too long we were about to walk into the rose and crown in guildford.
Now i have been here numerous times and the main reason i chose this place was it has a beautiful maintained garden. So the maitre’d showed us to our table which was under a umbrella which was great as the sun was starting to peek through.
Then the waitress came nearly straight away to take our coffee orders (this is a good sign as while i am at breakfast i like to peruse the menu while sipping on a coffee) So I ordered a cappucino and not too long after ordering, the coffee arrived.
Now the coffee i thought was quite nice. I thought the coffee beans tasted like a generic blend, however the temperature was perfect. Also i am not too sure what kind of milk they used, but it lacked the creaminess of some of the ‘a’ grade of coffee shops in perth. 7/10
Then i got to see the menu, the menu is really delicious at the rose and crown, i also like the fact thta they dont have 20 different items on the menu. They only have 7 items which the option to add a side of extras.
I had decided what i was going to order, the poached eggs on toast with a side of bacon. Then the waitress came to take out orders. When she pulled out the PDA to enter the orders she mentioned that it was her first day so if we could be patient that would be fantastic. However if she didnt say anything i wouldnt have noticed that it was her first day, she did a fantastic job!
So after taking all of our orders she returned shortly, she forgot to ask how i would like my poached eggs cooked (i asked for them very soft). This was a good sign that the staff were attentive and they didnt just ‘guess’ how i liked my eggs.
Then when the meal came it was delicious, the bread was a sourdough item that was large enough to rest the two poached eggs on it and the bacon was quite a few whole loin rashers which were oven baked until they are juicy. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly and the bread perfectly matched the eggs. Sometimes when you get poached eggs on toast the bread seems to disintegrate as soon as the yolk hits it. 9/10
Overall it was a wonderful breakfast with fantastic company and i would definately go back there again.Rose & Crown Hotel (08) 9347 8100 Swan Valley
