Disclosure: The Travelling Corkscrew was invited to dine at Muster Bar & Grill with compliments of Muster.
Add a steak for $5 to your plate of pork sausage, bacon, house beans & potato hash, what meat lover wouldn’t love that for breakfast? That is “The Muster” breakfast at Muster Bar & Grill in Margaret River town.
On my recent trip to the Margaret River wine region, I was lucky enough to be served up brekkie at Muster – the name of it may sound familiar as it’s actually the sister property of Must Wine Bar in Perth, you may even spot Russell Blaikie lurking in the kitchen down there! Sean Carter the Head Chef and General Manager of Muster is superb, not only can he make great food but he is an all-round nice guy.
And Mr. Carter has definitely put a fantastic brekkie menu together for meat lovers, sweet-tooths, health nuts, vegetarians and gluten-free peeps. I literally wanted EVERYTHING!!! However with my very tasty coffee in its super funky bright orange mug, I went for the breakfast board which consisted of granola, mini pancakes, poached egg, avocado feta, toast & preserve – it was the best of the best! I don’t know why more restaurants don’t do these types of brekkie dishes at it was simply fantastic, like tapas at breakfast!
Mr. Spittoon wanted something light so he went for the scrambled eggs on toast (sourdough) – being a connoisseur of scrambled eggs he gave them a thumbs up and they were literally gone in the blink of an eye! Being the nice person I am, and for the fact that I was REALLY full I shared some elements of my brekkie board with him and he was drooling over the mini pancakes, they were so fluffy and tasty that I struggled to share them to start off with!

Normally I talk about a restaurant’s decor and atmosphere before the food, however I just couldn’t help myself with this post – the food was so darn exciting and yummy!!
I loved the interior of Muster, it was Margaret River surf culture meets fine wine bar meets manly grill. You had tall round large bar tables, seating at the window to watch Margaret River town pass by, fine dining tables and a gorgeous bar with wine bottle light shades (LOVE!!) and gorgeous wine-inspired art. It felt like one of those places which would so easily do the day-to-night transition. Plus the flat screen TV on the wall displaying photos of the food made both Mr. Spittoon and I drooooool.. the burgers look insane!
I wish we had time to go back for dinner, as I think it would be just fantastic. Next time!! My only downfall about my visit was that there was no Champagne on the brekkie menu! When on holiday it’s just plain rude not to have a couple of Champagne brekkie’s right? A glass of Billecart-Salmon or Louis Roederer would have gone down an absolute treat with my breakfast board. The coffee was great, but I’m a bubbles girl at heart!
