The Mews | Mosman

At first glance, the menu is filled with the usual cafe suspects - granola, smashed avo, eggs benedict and a ricotta hotcake. Upon further inspection, you'll notice a burst of yuzu gel, a drizzle of lemon garlic balsamic, hollandaise speckled with nori and lashings of black sesame caramel. These elements add so much unique dimension and pure deliciousness that it shames regular avo on toast into hiding...

A unique menu, which isn't afraid to offer Sydneysiders something completely new and different. Don't worry, there's still lots of matcha...
