Tarts is a beautiful little cafe on the street in Northbridge. Don't let the outside of the cafe deceive you into thinking that the cafe is small. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of space indoors and we made our way to our small table at the back.
I spotted what looked like a tart and immediately went to the menu to find it.I convinced Mr. T to share the Strawberry Granola Tart ($13.90) with me so I could still order a main course, I was hungry! Mr T decided to order the Neptune Fritter ($19.90) and I decided on the Potato Head ($19.90). We both ordered a coffee to have with our breakfast.
All ordering complete, we could sit back and take in our surroundings. The cafe was decorated with cook books and various items available for purchase.
Our coffees arrived promptly, I ordered a Long Black w/milk and Mr. T ordered his usual Flat White. The coffee was nice and strong and it was exactly what I was hoping for!
Mr. T's Neptune Fritter was first to arrive to our table. He loved the balance of moisture and crunch packed into this fritter. The fritter was topped with wilted spinach and generous slices of fresh salmon. The dish was finished with two perfectly poached eggs and a light creamy hollandaise sauce.
My Potato Head and the Strawberry Granola Tart arrived at the same time. First, the Strawberry Granola Tart. This could be prettiest dish I have ever ordered as a breakfast dish. The granola tartlet was quite firm and a little hard but it was filled with a smooth and delicious vanilla mascarpone. This was topped with fresh berries and a delightful and fruity banana and mango sorbet. Strawberries and blueberries are my favourite fruits so I quickly spooned a few up with a little of the tartlet and the sorbet.
I didn't forget about my dish. It had a tasty potato fritter topped with mushrooms, which Mr. T ate as I'm not a fan. I also had a serving of wilted spinach on my dish which was covered by two well poached eggs and the same creamy hollandaise sauce as Mr. T's dish. Both of our dishes were quite similar except for a few small elements and equally delicious!
