I have heard a lot about Sayers Sister, so decided to give it a try for Sunday breakfast. It is in Northbridge at the Bulwer St end of Lake St. I haven’t been to this area before and was quite surprised to stumble across some other places that I have heard of such as Tarts and The Dizzy Witch.
Sayers Sister was the only of these restaurants with a queue, so we persevered and queued up. The restaurant is not quite as chaotic as Sayers in Leederville, the whole layout is better, and the staff allocate tables, so it is a much fairer system.
We were seated at the long central communal table, which has lots of sweet treats in the middle that you can graze on while you are waiting – you just put your payment in the little jars on the table. I think it’s nice that you can do this in Perth – you wouldn’t be able to get away with it in London – those coin jars would disappear on the first day!
I chose the potato rosti with bacon, poached eggs, rocket, spinach, parmesan and bramley apple/thyme chutney.
Every mouthful was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You could really taste the quality of the ingredients.
I also had a white peach and passion fruit lemonade to accompany it.
My companion had a coffee – which was really delicious and smooth with a caramel richness. He also had a full breakfast which was equally enjoyable – lots of nice quality ingredients, and a lovely cumin mousse/sorbet on the beans which was unusual and tasty. It consisted of home made beans, crusty bread, eggs, bacon, bubble and squeak, mushroom and pesto.
Sayers Sister also has a very attractive selection of home made cakes – if I were not on my January diet, I would have tried one (or two).
I will definitely be returning to Sayers Sister. I think it is slightly better than Sayers, but they are both good quality restaurants that I will always be happy to dine in.
This is another blog post a few years later:
I haven’t been to Sayers Sister for a few years now and wondered if it was as good as before. It is affiliated with Sayers in Leederville – a cafe that consistently serves great food and a brunch stalwart in Perth.
When we arrived there was a queue and we were told that the wait time was 15-20 minutes. They very kindly gave us a lovely chocolate and strawberry muffin to eat while we waited. Once we got seated we ordered coffee which was a lovely smooth rich blend.
The menu was full of delicious sounding options like baked apple waffles, zucchini and tomato bread with minted ricotta and zucchini flowers, leek and parmesan croquettes, but I chose my favourite potato rosti with poached eggs, bacon, spinach, rocket, parmesan, mustard, and apple/thyme chutney.
This was such a perfect brunch dish, and every ingredient added value. Quality oozy eggs, perfectly cooked bacon and the oh so yummy rosti with a little piquancy from the mustard – this was everything that I wanted on that chilly morning.
My partner chose the coriander and cumin beans tagine with babaganoush, walnut pesto, poached egg and toasted linseed. There were a variety of beans which made it interesting, the linseed bread was tasty and wholesome, the egg was nicely cooked and the babaganoush sublime. He loved every mouthful.
Sayers Sister is still delivering one of the best brunches in Perth – no wonder there’s a queue. Consistent quality and beautiful ingredients is a surefire winner here.
Unfortunately our last visit was not so great, it felt as if everything had changed and the service and quality had deteriorated. We haven’t been back in recent times.
