Sayers in Leederville is one of Perth’s leading brunch and lunch cafes, delivering consistently good food for many years.
Situated in Carr Place, it’s a bit of an awkward but charming design with a mixture of chairs, armchairs, bench seats and high seats inside, and quaint wrought iron tables in the laneway.
Coffees are always great and Sayers are happy to provide decaf and alternative milks.
The menu is one of those menus where everything sounds delicious, so it’s hard to choose. My go to favourite here has always been the potato rosti with spinach, eggs, parmesan and bacon, but on this occasion I chose the kedgeree.
The kedgeree was excellent – hot smoked salmon amongst perfect rice with poached eggs, chilli jam and green papaya salad.
My partner chose the vegan pumpkin, cauliflower, and lentil dhal with poppyseed naan. He loved it, every mouthful was delicious.
If you visit Sayers at the weekend, it can be busy, noisy and an assault on the senses, but if you go midweek, it can be an oasis of calm. Some of the tables are a little small and you will end up rearranging your dishes and coffee cups to make everything fit, and sometimes the tables in the laneway can get very hot in the summer, but Sayers is all about quality food, consistently delivered. You really can’t go wrong with this Leederville legend.
