Enmore, Sydney

Silverbean is a vintage style cafe in the popular suburb of Enmore, a place where the restaurants and cafes are as diverse as its residents.

The space is intimate and the ambience is warm and relaxed. It's old bentwood chairs and copper lights give it a real rustic look.

Silverbean's menu is inspired by the Southwest of America and if that makes you think of food full of meat, beans and corn, think again.

Silverbean's menu is quite diverse, with lots of delicious options for vegetarian and vegan diets too.

We arrived for brunch on a Saturday morning and we choose to sit inside.

We could have easily chosen a table outside (perfect for people watching) but we were drawn to the lovely wooden furniture and warm interior.

We started with two long blacks whilst we looked at the menu - fairly normal for us. 

They serve organic fair trade coffee from PNG here. 

It was smooth and was arrived with a beautiful crema - a sure indication your long black is going to be superb. 

We loved it.

We don't come across vegan dishes very often, so we opted to try the Vegan breakfast. It seemed weird that we were ordering a breakfast dish that didn't come with any eggs or bacon but we love trying new things so we were somewhat excited. If we could describe the Vegan breakfast in a few words, we would say healthy and fresh. It was loaded with homemade things like baked beans, mushrooms and avocado. The sourdough toast was crisp and accompanied with the most delicious walnut oil, made on right on premises.

Next up a massive smoked salmon stack (and when we say massive we mean massive). Loaded with a hash brown, chorizo and of course poached eggs, this dish is the one to go for if you are in the mood for a big meal. Obviously freshly prepared, the hash brown was crunchy and the smoked salmon had just the right amount of saltiness to it. Count N also enjoyed the chipotle mayo that came with it.

Now, If there's one thing you can always count on with The Counts, it's that there's always room for something sweet - even after a huge meal.

So, to finish up, we ordered some hot cakes without much persuasion at all.

These fluffy hot cakes were served with crispy bacon, berry compote, ricotta and were drizzled with a very unique chamomile maple.

We've had hotcakes served with bacon many times, usually drowned in maple syrup and cream but these had just the right amount of maple and the ricotta instead of cream gave the dish a slightly less sweet sugary taste. We had also never tried camomile maple before and we loved it's fruity and vanilla like scent.

As we finished our meals, we took a look around the cafe, admiring some of the interesting pictures on the wall.

We came across a lovely couch area at the back of the cafe (wish we had seen that from the beginning). It's a perfect spot for some privacy or an intimate catch up.

Silverbean impressed us with their fresh and tasty food, their great service and a real warm atmosphere, a place p where you can just sit back and relax.

We definitely will be back, probably to try a few things from the lunch menu next time. Silverbean is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch.

The Counts, who review for Sir and Mlady Dine Out, dined as guests of Silverbean. Special thanks to Elijah for this invitation.
