The pedestrian area of Myagah Road in Mosman has become a café haven. I have previously visited Fourth Village Providore which scored very well but after a recommendation I though it was time to review The Mews.
I arrived expecting an expansive establishment only to discover that it looks so large in the promotional photo on the website because of some creative use of mirrors!
The interior was buzzing when we arrived and quite cramped so we opted for outside. We seated ourselves and promptly received menus and water. Throughout our visit, service was excellent.
I could not fault the Dose coffee (espresso $3, regular $3.80) which definitely gives other establishments in the area a run for their money!
We were surprised when the iced coffee ($6.50) arrived as we were expecting a tall clear glass with the ice cream on top. Instead it was a milkshake version with the double shot, ice, ice cream and vanilla all blended together. We ordered two, with one of them being colder and boasting more of a coffee flavour which was disappointing for one of my guests who missed out on this improved version!
The first of our three extremely tasty dishes was the huevos rancheros ($16). The piping hot dish contained a tomato salsa base flavoured with chorizo, corn, cumin and spices. The salsa was fantastic and there was plenty of pita bread to scoop it up with. The guacamole and lime on the side was a nice touch.
Try as we might we couldn’t distinguish the flavour of ‘truffle’ in The Mews truffle ($18) but what we could taste, we thoroughly enjoyed. We just couldn’t pinpoint the ingredients. The combination of poached eggs, oven roasted mushrooms, tomato, spinach and sourdough makes a great vegetarian dish. My guest added bacon for $4.
I’ll find any excuse to choose the burger when I see it on a menu. The Mews beef burger ($14) is apparently a new addition so I thought I had better force myself to try! I was might impressed. The patty itself was flavoursome and very juicy. The copious amounts of cheese and caramelised onion sure helped. This was all flavoured with a tomato relish and whole egg mayonnaise A very filling and well-priced burger.
Judging from our dishes which tasted superb and were well-presented, the rest of the menu is something worth returning for. Other dishes I spotted were homestyle maple-nut-crunch or cranberry muesli servied with honey yoghurt & forest berries ($12), The Eos (bacon and egg on lightly roasted oven Pita bread with wild baby rocket and chunky tomato relish ($8) and The Catalan roll (chorizo, fried egg, baby spinach, caramelised onion and chunky tomato relish on a bread roll, $9.50).
There’s plenty to love about The Mews. The quiet laneway it resides in is away from noisy traffic yet is bathed in sunlight through the morning. The staff were quick and personable and best of all they serve gorgeous dishes. Make it a spot to try on the way down to Balmoral Beach.
