Ando: It’s hard waking up early on a Saturday morning but that’s exactly what I did along with other food bloggers to avoid the Saturday brunch crowd. Following directions from my GPS, I was surprised to see a group of ladies waiting outside at 9.30am. I was shocked and I thought to myself ‘did Saturday brunch sessions just get earlier?’ Thankfully they weren’t there for the cafe, but for a pole dancing studio a few doors down!
In the past few months my Instagram feed has been inundated with food pics from this cafe and I was glad that I was finally here to check this place out for myself. Parking at Three Williams was a breeze as there was ample parking directly outside the cafe and on the opposite side of the street.The clipboard menu acted like a map pointing and guiding me through all the delicious treats on this trip.
On a side note, Three Williams does get quite loud at times. Especially being a child friendly cafe, you do get the occasional kid running up and down the wooden ramp. But this just adds to the vibrant atmosphere.
And you can’t have a child friendly cafe without the additional kids area! I would totes bring my kids here if I had any!
A flat white ($3.5) was what I needed to start the morning. Oh and the use Single Origin Roasters beans here.
The Merchant – chilli fried egg, crispy bacon, pickled slaw, ranch dressing on a warm brioche bun ($12). The hint was chilli in this dish was subtle and worked well with the tangy pickled slaw. The brioche bun was light and did not make the dish feel too heavy.
Poached eggs, marinated bull horn peppers, serrano ham, feta, dukkah, on toast ($16). The egg was poached perfectly and the feta gave the dish that extra tanginess. I would have liked more of the thin slices of serrano ham though.
Big William – bacon, fried eggs, nuremberg sausage, roma tomato, hash, onion relish ($18). A breakfast/brunch classic you can’t go wrong with!
Spicy smashed beans with avocado on charred toast with two poached eggs ($16). I wasn’t too sure about the ‘smashed’ beans, but this was a mouthful of a dish. As I am a coriander fan, I thought it was a nice addition to the dish.
Crunchy brioche french toast, blueberries, yoghurt, roasted pecans and maple syrup ($14). This was the dish I was looking forward to eat the most and I wasn’t disappointed. Crunchy, sweet, tangy, creamy, fruity… all in the morning? YES! Reward yourself!
Narnies with grilled prawns, avocado, sweet corn and tomato salsa with aioli ($14). The naan-style flat bread is signature house made and was fluffy and not too doughy. I wish I could pick this up with my hands but this was not feasible, as it would fall apart. Knives and forks at the ready!
Narnies with fried tempeh, asian-style pickled veg, sriracha & lime mayo ($12). A great choice for vegetarians.
Beer battered chips with house aioli ($6). Triple cooked, these chips are immensely crunchy and super addictive!
Fish croquettes with lemon and aioli ($3 each). The presentation of this dish is just too adorable.
Granola with hibiscus pear ($12). Another one of the great vegetarian dishes here at Three Williams.
Caramelised cauliflower tabouli, with quinoa, walnuts and preserved lemon ($12 + $2 with chicken). A healthy dish that will leave you feeling satisfied!
And some additional desserts were needed to finish off an amazing brucn session! Strawberry flavoured doughnuts and brownies! Beetroots were used here in the making of the pink icing. Yum!
