While in Albany over the weekend I enjoyed a very good breakfast at Vancouver cafe with friends. After a terrible coffee experience at another Albany cafe (for unknown reasons, cafes in WA routinely turn anything called a latte, flat white or even macchiato into a huge hot milkshake with a mere hint of coffee), I warned fellow visitors to order their coffees with less milk than they would usually have in Melbourne to compensate. Vancouver did better than most but I ordered espresso just to be safe.
Fortunately the food was really good. From the top down: the charming exterior; a German omelette with bacon, onion and mushrooms; claypot with venison sausage, zucchini, peppers, feta, mushrooms and poached egg; and a mega breakfast (with the eggs replaced with spicy beans), sausages, mushrooms, tomato, bacon and rosti. All came with a variety of toast, which is lovely touch.
The owner and chef had catered for a wedding I attended the previous day in the lovely grounds of Oranje Tractor winery, so I knew the breakfast would be good as the reception lunch had been outstanding. According to the locals I talked to at the wedding and then breakfasted with, Vancouver is the best cafe in Albany and it is somewhere I would be happy to return to if I am ever that far from home again.
