Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

I have finally ventured into Devon Cafe, the talk of the food instagram world. From the exterior of it yu would think that this cafe is just another coffee shop, but as you head into the depths of the store you are brought into a vintage looking area with wooden accents. It is almost reminiscent of a barn wedding in some ways. We had arrived when the kitchen had closed for its breakfast serving but we are advised by the friendly staff that the kitchen would be open in 30 minutes. 

Cappuccino- $3.50
I decide to get some coffee for the wait. A regular cappuccino is the usual for me. The coffee was very nice. In had just the perfect amount of both milk and coffee. You know how some stores can be a bit too milky? well this isn't one of them, thank goodness, because I hate milky coffee. I find that I am very critical of coffee, but this one was good. Wouldn't mind a cup right now as I'm writing up this review.  

Eggs Blini- $19
There's a pancake underneath all that fresh salmon and there is 2 perfectly poached eggs perched on top of the beautifully presented pile of cured salmon.  I have no idea what Mikado sauce is, but that's what lies on the most visible layer. The Mikado sauce adds a sweetness to the whole dish, almost an overpowering sweetness but there are also citrus scents scattered in the sauce. My favourite part of this dish was definitely the salmon. It was so beautiful and fresh, tasting as though it had just been caught and cured right there and then. The caviar adds texture to the dish and is an interesting element, but it doesn't take away from the flavours of the sauce. The eggs are perfectly poached and come oozing out as I puncture my fork into them. Although the serving wasn't overly huge, I didn't manage to finish it and I am quite a big eater. In all honesty, by the end of the dish, I actually became sick of the dish. Maybe it was due to the taste of the Mikado sauce, I'm not too sure what it was. In spite of that,  I really enjoyed this dish and recommend it to anyone that has a love for salmon.

I really enjoyed my time at Devon Cafe. The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was great and the food is beautifully presented. I would love to try some of the other things they have on the menu because every plate that was brought out to the tables around me looked delicious. Devon cafe is the definition of food for your eyes.
