Located in the heart of Darlinghurst is a pink-hued cafe haven known as The Mayflower. Built into an art deco-style shop front (which used to be a florist), this dreamy corner bunker pays homage to its floral history, sporting delicate art, lavish Parisian-style flower installations, a full caviar service, and dreamy marble pink finishes.
And now, it’s home to a dish you’ll definitely want to conquer at your next brunch date. Enter the cafe’s new Ferrero Rocher brûlée French toast. This decadent start-your-day plate is layered with Valrhona dark chocolate, the French chocolatier known to create some of the best choc in the whole entire world.
"We use a torch to make a brûlée and then coat with Valrhona 70% dark chocolate," says founder Kevin Ly. "And then we cover with roasted hazelnuts, [and] finished with sour cream, a grilled peach, and raspberries on the side."
The result? Decadent French toast with all the hazelnut-choc crunch of a Fererro Rocher.
On top of this, The Mayflower has also done a full reno on its menu, just in time for spring. There’s now a boujee “Mayflower Roll”, which is loaded with butter-poached lobster, dijon, celery, and caviar all on a potato bread roll; and a “Kurobuta Katsu” burger with wasabi mayo, apple, and cabbage; and a “Fill-O-Fish” studded with fresh John Dory, tartare and tomato sauce on a potato bun.
You can scope out the rest of the menu here.
