Sayers Food, Leederville

Definitively my favorite cafe of all time. Stef & Mark Sayers' niche cafe had become the talk of the town. Fragrance of Five Sense beans, freshly roasted and brewed to perfection floats & welcome you in to a relaxed and funky dining area. Must try the outdoor bench chairs. The shade clothes and the breeze makes this delightful during summer months.

And oh the food:
Pork fillet, Pancetta, pumpkin gnocchi, wilted spinach & port jus
Presentation is clean cut and simplistic. Light and balanced taste of the dish aptly blends the port jus, sweet pumpkin gnocchi with the salty pancetta wrapped pork fillet. Delightfully simple and satisfy all the senses.

Quinoa & shredded pork salad, charred orange, sultanas & pistachio
This can be a definition of summer salad. Light but filling with the use of the quinoa. The quinoa provided an additional layer of texture to the salad. Instead of sultanas today we received the dish with diced honeyed fig - this was a nice surprise and much less sweet than the bursts of fructose of the sultanas. The caramelised onion adds a different sweetness to the dish and aptly off sets the juicy braised pork (belly meat). I've got to try this at home or a variation.

Leek & Parmesan croquettes, poached eggs, rocket leaf & spicy fruit chutney
An old favourite, now available during lunch! Sweet leek in croquette form! Love it. I got a giant croquette, but two poached eggs & extra wilted spinach! Score! Delightful way to start Saturday afternoon.
Carrot & coconut cake
Not a huge fan of desiccated coconut. But walnut & carrot cake can never go wrong. And I love the fact Sayers is one of few cafes which use REAL double cream with their cakes! And real cream with their iced coffees!

Stars: 5 out of 5
But then people have said I'm biased!
