Mary Street Bakery, Mt Lawley

Mary Street Bakery has become a very popular local gem in Mt Lawley for brunch and we've been dying to try it out after hearing all the hype. As you know we love trying out popular places and seeing if they're really worth the hype and this was no exception. Their menu has classic brunch dishes like Eggs on Toast, Salmon with Egg and Avocado, but they also have more adventurous dishes like the Fried Chicken Pancakes, Coconut Rice and Squid Ink Tagliatelle, which is what caught our attention. 

Unfortunately Megan was busy and unable to join me today, so she missed out on the amazing food! I'll be writing this blog post solo which means I was only able to try out one dish but nevertheless there will be food porn. 

Chai Latte ($4.50)

I love it when cafes make Chai Lattes from Chai tea instead of powder or syrup! I liked how they served it in a pot, so I was able to let the Chai tea soak in the latte for longer to suit my personal taste. As expected, the Chai latte was perfect and probably one of the best I've had in a while. I was able to get two glasses out of the pot which is a bonus. 

Fried Chicken Buttermilk Pancake, Peanuts, Maple, Chilli and Fried Egg ($22)

I've always been intrigued by seeing Americans having savoury meats like bacon and fried chicken with sweet pancakes and maple syrup, I'm used to pancakes as a sweet dish so I wasn't sure of how the flavour combination would taste. Now I finally understand what all the fuss is about! I was very impressed with the fried chicken, it was tender, juicy and despite being drizzled with maple syrup it wasn't soggy at all. The savoury and sweet combination was delicious, the chilli added an extra kick, while the egg and pancake neutralised the flavours. The only negative thing I have to say about this dish is that the pancake was a little thick, which made it carby and difficult to finish, it would be perfect if it was half the thickness. I give this dish a rating of 9/10. 

Overall Review

I'm very happy with my experience at Mary Street Bakery despite coming on a busy weekend the customer service and food was on point, even if there was a longer wait on the food. Considering it is in Mt Lawley, the prices weren't too high and you get your money's worth. There were quite a few interesting dishes on the menu that I didn't get the chance to try, so I'll definitely be back. I highly recommend this place for brunch and give them an overall rating of 8.5/10.
