Mrs S Highgate
Mrs S Highgate is the younger sister of Maylands' much-loved Mrs S. Despite setting up in larger premises - the cafe takes over the former Solomon's site - the new Mrs S faithfully channels the look and spirit of the original.
Maylands regulars will notice plenty of similarities between the two cafes, from the menus bound in Little Golden Books, to the pretty cakes on the counter.
Scatter cushions add a splash of colour to the exposed-brick backdrop. Outdoor seating is available at the back of the cafe. The coffee is from local roaster Dimattina.
Although the Beaufort Street spin-off serves new dishes, including a meatball toastie and pulled-pork bagel, Mrs S favourites, such as the rose and berry panna cotta and Granny June’s corn bread – and the aforementioned Manwich – are also available.
Baker Thuong Do is responsible for keeping the counter filled with those signature Mrs S sweets. She’ll also trial new cakes and sweets at the Beaufort Street store before offering them for sale at Maylands.
