In the leafy suburb of Mosman is a cafe tucked into a laneway, named the Mews. A good amount of outdoor tables allows you to take in the morning sunshine. We visited bright and early, 8am and it was extremely busy when we left, so I’d recommend arriving early too.
We talked to the owners who are absolutely delightful and keen to do the best for their customers, Daniel tells us they recently changing coffee beans for the locals, who like it “strong”.
Using an amazing coffee machine; the Cafe racer from San Remo and the Grand cru brand, in particular the 3 bean from Brazil, Ethiopia and Kenya. A great blend and came out with some skilled latte art. The chai latte is also offered in two forms; powdered (my favourite) or brewed.
We had been scoping out this cafe for weeks, if not months now and following delicious food pics on Instagram, so it was extremely difficult to pick just one thing to eat, hence we got a few to share. The food is a mix of Asian and Australian influences which makes for a beautiful fusion.
We tried the Miso mush with sautéed wild mushrooms on a piece of sourdough, shaved edamame, black sesame, lotus chips and topped with a poached egg. Such a beautiful combination of flavours.
The braised pork Shakshuka, eggs, toast capsicum and tomato, chickpeas, fetta cheese and pistachio dukkah, pomegranates and roti is quite possibly our favourite ever Shakshuka.
The Nutella lava hotcakes were fluffy, almost cake like, filled with warm Nutella and topped with Candied pancetta, lemon curd and Persian fairy floss as well as raspberries and strawberries.
They also have vegetarian and vegan options available to it is suitable for all. It was a pleasure to visit this lovely cafe and the food is amazing.
