It's all about the coffee right? Well Sayers delivers on this, as it provides coffee from Five Senses.
Five Senses Coffee is an Australian wholesaler that sources its product from around the world. Interestingly this family owned company started as a single roasting site in Rockingham, Western Australia. Sayers uses a mix of Brazilian Ipanema and Balenese Begus Sekali. The result is a rich smooth coffee style.
As you walk into Sayers it strikes you as being a comfortable cosy environment with an eclectic mix of interior decor. It's also a busy one, with the kitchen visibly hustling to get out orders. The counter is laden with an impressive array of cakes and tasty muffins.

We chose to sit inside but you could also sit out on the front pavement or there is another outside area to the rear of the cafe. There are some nice big comfy chairs to sit down on and so we ordered coffee and relaxed.
The choices on the menu are not cheap but according to Sayers their emphasis is on food quality - "Food is our Passion" - and they purport to source their food from the best growers.
At the time we were there, we had the option of choosing from the lunch or breakfast menus. They included a varied selection of interesting meals indicating that Sayers provide options for food that stray from the usual cafe fare, including a breakfast dish of coriander and cumin beans tagine, baba ganoush, poached egg and toasted linseed. The lunch menu included a citrus and vodka cured salmon, blood orange, fresh ricotta and fennel salad. I chose the grilled steak sandwich, Swiss cheese, onion jam, tomato and aioli, which was tasty and well presented.
The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week and is located at 224 Carr Street, Leederville.
