The Mews is a little café on Myahgah Road in Mosman, just around the corner from the Fourth Village Providore. You can’t miss it as the café’s name is printed on the large black umbrellas protecting the outdoor seating. The café’s interior is dimly lit and small although mirrors are used effectively to make it look more spacious. It’s decked out with brick floors, wooden ceiling beams, low hanging light bulbs and marble-top tables.
We parked near the Allan Border Oval where a game of cricket was being played. After Boyfriend spent some time checking the score and who was playing, we wandered over to the café and sat inside in the air-conditioning. We sat with our backs against the wall at a long wooden bench made comfortable with pretty cushions. We were also very close to the large display of takeaway items including wraps, pastries, quiches as well as desserts such as Portugese tarts, brownies and pies.
We both ordered the Huevos Rancheros after reading this review. The guacamole and Pita bread was a nice, cool accompaniment to the piping hot dish layered with chorizo sausage, tomato and cumin salsa and an egg. The egg was perfectly cooked without being too runny and mixing with the salsa.
We never order dessert after brunch but we had been staring at the tempting desserts throughout our meal. So we shared a Chocolate Whoopie – two moist chocolatey biscuits with a creamy chocolate filling.
The food was delicious, Boyfriend said the coffee was great and the service was very efficient and the staff were friendly. I recommend The Mews for a meal, but avoid sitting near the dessert display if you are on a diet – it’s too tempting.
