Lots of people are talking about Mrs S and for good reason. They have the right combination of ambience and tasty food making it popular with any diner. I am yet to hear of someone not enjoy their experience at Mrs S.
As my hubby was in the area for work I offered to pick him up if he took me to Mrs S for a late breakfast. Of course he didn’t argue with that! Mrs S is located on the corner of Whatley and Eighth Avenue in Maylands which is becoming a trendy spot for quirky little cafes. It is open for breakfast (until 11:30am), lunch (until 3pm) and of course sweet treats in between. Mrs S has a very homely feel with a large sharing table in the centre with smaller tables around the edge of the room. The staff were friendly, quickly welcomed us and helped us find a table and highchair for our son. I loved their menu idea of pegging the menu inside a Little Golden Book (ours was a Garfield book today) and the drinks menu blackboard decorated with Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit characters.
Feeling rather hungry I chose the Croque Madame ($11.50) where thick slices of ham sat amongst cheese and bechamel sauce sandwiched between slabs of toasted bread, then topped with a fried egg still runny enough to delight my tastebuds. It was truly noshtastic. It also had a pot of fresh tomato relish and rocket on the side. I also ordered a Flat White ($3.50) which came with the traditional art design on top. (I love it when cafes go to the effort of doing this) The coffee was well made, quite strong and the top was creamy more than frothy.
After spying the sweet treats on the counter, my hubby ordered the Lemon Curd Cake ($4.50) and an Iced Chocolate ($6.00). The lemon curd cake looked very pretty on its vintage plate, the lemon was really tangy and it came with real thick cream! Definitely a two thumbs up for him. His iced chocolate was incredibly chocolatey too.
Mrs S is a popular cafe and I’m already looking forward to our next visit.
