The Fantastic Mrs. S

Maylands is building up quite a portfolio of excellent places to drink coffee on the other side of the tracks.

It started with Milkd, then the fabulous Sherbert, and now Mrs. S has joined the party. We breakfasted at Mrs. S on Saturday morning, on her fourth day of business, and we were not disappointed.

Mrs. S is located on the corner of Whatley Crescent & Eighth Avenue, Maylands. The decor is retro-chic, the bowls (or scales) of wrapped candy are real, the cookbooks dotted around the establishment are for sale, and the service is friendly and attentive.

Although the menu is limited (and only for now — recruitment of kitchen staff is not yet complete), it satisfies and the coffee is very good.

Our entree was the almond croissant that we devoured in dainty portions, like a miniature cake.

M ordered the toasted ham and cheese sandwich;

Matt's toasted sandwich

I opted for the olive tapenade toast with its avocado, grilled tomatoes, coriander and spring onion. So fresh and tasty, it was the most raw option on the menu and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I can see this becoming a favourite cafe for us to while away lazy Saturdays with a bite to eat, a cryptic crossword and a pot of peppermint tea. I highly recommend it now; I look forward to sampling what it will be.
