A Brewer’s Tale is a fairy tale themed cafe in Darlinghurst with a whimsical ambiance and decor that does cute and quirky brunch dishes. We had heard good things about this place and finally got around to trying it.
We couldn’t come here without trying their signature matcha hotcakes with fresh fruit, matcha chocolate, pistachios, poached pear, persian fairy floss, coconut slices and red bean. This was amazing and lived up to my expectations. The pancakes were fluffy and full of matcha flavour and went well with the tangy fruit and the sweet red bean. The fairy floss on top was definitely a sweet way to finish off the dish!
We also ordered the smashed avo with a side of smoked salmon, beetroot hummus, micro herbs, cherry tomato, danish feta, fresh lemon, sprouts, dukkah and sourdough toast. This was an interesting twist on a classic dish. The dukkah and hummus complemented the acidity of the lemon and tomato perfectly. Apparently this is the reason we can’t afford houses and it’s well worth it!!
Finally, we ordered the salmon rush with smoked salmon, capers, baby spinach, feta cheese, sprout and hash browns. We were slightly disappointed with the presentation of this dish, it was so plain compared to the other two! The dish tasted good though, with the hash brown cooked nice and crunchy, though we would have liked more elements on the dish.
Overall, A Brewer’s Tale is a nice brunch cafe with creative dishes and cute decor. Definitely worth a visit!
