I’d heard great things about Taylors and have been keen to try the Swan Valley brunch spot for some time. Taylors Art and Coffee House is found in a rustic building, which has charming little nooks to sit in – like a corrugated iron water tank – it feels like you could be in an outback oasis.
As well as the café, you’ll find quality arts and crafts there to buy.
It was a very hot day so we opted to sit inside. While we waited for all of our friends to arrive, I slurped on a deliciously refreshing beet and veg juice.
Kez had the smashed avo, $16. This was a tasty version of the breakfast staple. Smashed avocado sits on rye with fresh tomato, crumbled feta, balsamic and a free range poached egg.
Kimie chose the gluten free version of the brekkie sandwich, $16. She also added a couple of sausages on the side. Kim soon realised this wasn’t necessary as there are two rounds of sandwiches! The sarnies are brimming with bacon, eggs, tomato relish and cheddar cheese. Yummo!
I ordered the cornbread, $22 served with tasty chipotle butter. It is topped with guacamole, dressed greens and a free range poached egg. There’s an option to add bacon for an extra $8 and of course I couldn’t resist! The egg was perfectly gooey and the bacon slightly crisp. I ooo-ed and yumm-ed my way through this dish – it’s very very tasty! I’d have it again in a heartbeat!
The kids are spoiled for choice too with a decent kids menu for breakfast and lunch. There’s also a large sandpit in the outside dining courtyard – but it was far too hot for that! Miss M had a 2 Pancake stack with maple syrup, banana, strawberries, cream & icing sugar, $12.Little Chef enjoyed his bacon, scrambled eggs & toast $9. The portions served for kids meals can vary a lot and I thought at Taylors these are very generous.
All in all we enjoyed Taylors and I’d absolutely go there again. Hopefully we’ll visit on a cooler day so we can sit outside and enjoy a hot coffee with brunch. The food is excellent and well priced too. Recommended!
