I keep hearing how good Sayers is, or is it Sayer Sisters? My friend Miss Kuah would beg to differ. She has been on numerous occasions to this establishment and service was poor – where she waited an hour and half for a milkshake (she had to ask the staff 4 times where the hell was it) and for a doughnut and her cousin’s meal. This was on a Saturday.
One of the awesome girls from work, I’ll refer to her as Miss F organised a birthday breakfast for one of the other girls at work. I was hoping Sayers wouldn’t be crap with service, but breakfast on a weekday – you’d think it would be okay.
The line to order got long after 8am, but the food and drinks came out in a timely manner. So all’s good with the service.
I ordered a chai latte and a long mac extra hot to go. For food, I got the Maple & cumin sweet potato, ricotta & pinenut crepe, rocket & yoghurt salad, poached eggs and sweet potato crisps.
I think the sweet potato crisps were the best part. A bit too carby for my liking and the whole dish I felt was a bit too… dry. The eggs weren’t runny, so they over-poached the eggs. I could have done with some butter with the bread, all done without the bread altogether. Having the crepe on the bread was too much as well. I don’t feel it was a good balance – that’s why I say it’s too “carby”. If you’re prone to falling asleep after carbs, this dish is not for you!
The way I judge how good coffee is by how my stomach feels after drinking a coffee. This day, I felt terrible by 3pm. And I would have to put it down to the milk.
My rating for this place – I’m not in a rush to come back here. And I definitely wouldn’t get coffee here. But please, judge for yourself. Just don’t come here on a weekend, unless you have all day to kill! (that’s going by Miss Kuah’s review!)
