Cute Clipper Cafe

Cute, low key cafe with big bench tables and high top benches inside and a few small tables outside. Quite an extensive menu for breakfast and lunch with some good choices for vegos. Servings were quite large and prices not outrageous.

So many delicious-sounding menu options made it very hard to choose just one thing to eat on my recent visit to Sydney. I opted for the mushroom pesto eggs sans eggs and was able to substitute this with another menu item (which was great!). The food came out quick enough, given how busy the café was, and it was very... More

We've been here twice and tried out the soup, coffee, fresh orange juice and pancakes. All of them really good! They deliver more than what you are expecting for the price, the mood is very relaxed. Also, free wifi. Recommended!

Love this little cafe. I go to USyd and love coming here for a cheap but tasty meal. The chai latte is the best chai latte I have had in ever, it tastes like the ones you get in Pakistan (use to live there). If you head there, order it! It is a nice quiet little funky cafe, friendly staff... More

Had a great breakfast here with some friends on a gorgeous and sunny spring day. I had the poached eggs with smoked salmon which was delicious and not overly heavy as I find smoked salmon can be sometimes. The eggs were perfectly cooked with lovely golden yolks. My friends had the mushroom pesto eggs and reported similar deliciousness. Coffee was... More

Great place for breakfast! Cute fit out. Generous, friendly people and super yummy wholesome food! Banana bread the best! Fruit salad yogurt & honey, I'd actually love to have a little bit of everything!

During my exchange semester I became a regular at this place. They have great sandwiches, and cakes and pancakes, and coffees and... (you get the idea) ;) I have nothing but greatness to say about this place. And while you're there, try their "dirty chai". It's chai latte with a shot of espresso served in small tea/coffee pots.

Very nice and welcoming place! I ordered a fruit salad (the best one ever!!!!!), my boyfriend gnocchi with pesto and our friend prawns bruschetta. Gnocchi arrived after 20 minutes or less. Bruschetta arrived when my boyfriend finished his plate... They finished their lunch, and I hadn't started yet! Even if the place wasn't busy, I had to wait almost one... More
