K here; now that working life has caught up to us, Judy and I end up with more time apart but the silver lining is I get to bring you some of my own reviews!

 

I recently took a short trip to see some friends in Sydney and in between everything else we, of course, went to a few choice eateries. The first was a place very close to where I was staying which seemed irresistibly popular, called Three Williams.

 

The exterior was so unassuming I almost walked past it but inside, it’s quite a vast space which still maintains a warm and snug feel on the leather seats. The staff were very quick to acknowledge my presence which is always appreciated and there was something about the central coffee area and symmetrical layout that appealed to me.

Chai Masala Tea (White) ($4.50)

My first trip was for some quick breakfast so I ordered the bircher muesli and a chai latte. Between all the elements in the muesli there was a good balance of sourness, sweetness and acidity. There was also a generous amount of fruit, yogurt and compote while the muesli itself was better than most I’ve had. The chai masala tea was also good, but with nothing particular to write home about.

On my second trip I went for something a little more substantial. The Merchant (which I ended up eating with my knife and fork for some reason) was really quite delicious. The egg was perfectly cooked (although I would raise an eyebrow at its claim to be chilli fried) and everything very well balanced by the pickled slaw. I would definitely go again for a taste of this treat (and so I could eat it with my hands to clear my confused conscience…).

My cappuccino was also solid (in the good way) although I feel a touch on the burnt side. I will freely admit that may just be some Melbourne bias creeping in.

I think Three Williams popularity is justly earned. It would be a regular weekend breakfast stop for me if I wasn’t 1000km away.
