The Maillard Project
The Maillard Project comes to us from Adam Wang, the coffee connoisseur behind Coffee Anthology, one of the city’s most popular cafes. There’s a distinctly different vibe here though, with a minimalist stone, concrete and timber interior in contrast to Coffee Anthology’s industrial style. The most impressive section of the venue though, is the roasting area, which is visible behind a wall of glass and is where you might catch The Maillard Project’s beans being roasted on the daily.
Though the new spot is very much about being a hub for coffee lovers to hang out and share their love of the bean, the breakfast menu is no afterthought. On the morning roundup you’ll find sweet cardamom pancakes with yuzu curd, meringue, chestnut mascarpone, orange and berries, and a pork bone broth congee with smoked ham hock, pickled bamboo, mixed herbs, crispy shallot and halved soft boiled egg, with more options on their all day breakfast menu.
There’s a handful of lunch dishes too, plus a selection of baked goods at the counter if you just need something to get you through the afternoon.
