Brunch!

Baked eggs with napali sauce was interesting and appetizing. 1 is good to share between 2 and perhaps get the Gluten-free pancakes as well. Coffee was great but it would be better if it came in bigger sizes.

Loved this cafe, in a accessible location with a great vibe. The food was so delicious and the service was really wonderful as well. Reasonable prices as well!

Fantastic first (and definitely not the last) visit to Clipper cafe. We tried the prosciutto eggs as well as the Prosciutto roll and both were great. Being backpackers, we found it more than affordable, with food and coffee for two people coming in at just over 20 dollars. Chilled atmosphere in there and we were made to feel very welcome... More

I must say walking into the cafe it was quaint, warm and inviting. Staff are friendly. Positive things- the freshly squeezed juicies are great and refreshingly different, as well as the eggy crumpets with bacon. A few misses I don't know if the staff know the different between a chai latte and a chai tea latte... I asked for a... More

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!
