Located just a hop and skip from the station, Merrylands’ Mase Cafe is a popular local weekend brunch spot, and with good reason. Come here for brekkie options that fuse a Mediterranean-influence with classic Aussie dishes.
All of your usual suspects make the cut, including bacon and egg rolls, smashed avo on toast and muesli — and these sit on the menu with the likes of a mushroom and spinach shakshuka (topped with creamy feta and served with za’atar sourdough) and kafta plates served with hummus and fattoush.
For drinks, expect taro, turmeric and red velvet lattes to accompany your typical coffees and teas. Queues should be expected on weekends, so be sure to book ahead or plan to wait.
