Four.ate.Five has been our breakfast destination of choice for over two years now. During that time it has not once delivered us a disappointing experience. And yes there can be a line on weekends but the tables do turn over regularly, we've never had to wait longer than 15 minutes. There are two approaches to the menu I can recommend,... More

We had a 3 day stay in Sydney and went to this cafe every day. It was busy on Sunday morning but the staff were welcoming and we didn't have to wait long for a table. The coffee and food are excellent.The smoked salmon and avocado stack is superb and could probably be shared between two but if you are... More

Have been to fouratefive five times now, four times with my partner (three brekkie dates and one lunch date) and once with a large group for my sister's birthday brunch. Every time the service has been great. Very personable staff, coffee and food always delivered in good time (and to an exceptional standard). Would highly recommend the breakfast toasted sandwich...

Sweet raptor jesus, this place was good! We stumbled across it while caffeine deprived on a short trip to Sydney and were greeted by the friendliest staff :) The staff were knowledgeable and full of good suggestions for filling our bellies. I ordered bacon and eggs with mushrooms and though it may have seemed a little pricy reading off the... More

Simply love it. Not close to train so had quite a good walk to there. The whole surry hill region has a lots of cafe choice and you can find everyone just sit back and enjoying the morning. Have ordered a latte with almond milk. No disappointment. Have ordered a baked eggs with mushroom, Parmesan and sourdough. Such a good... More

Eggs benedicts on a croissant was really good. BLT is average. Solid second choice cafe, limited seating and slightly out of the way if you do not live in the neighbourhood it's not worth the detour. The dishes are classic but executed well. Service is efficient and friendly. There was a queue on Saturday morning, good sign for any business.... More

This place is known for its delicious breakfast & lunch food as well as top-notch coffee. I will add that the home-made almond milk alone is worth repeat visits: lightly sweetened and flavoured with spices, it is addictive. Sit at the communal table to get a view of the tiny galley kitchen and all the mouth-watering dishes that are served.

Stumbled across 4ate5 whilst strolling around Surry Hills - it was so busy we thought, "this place must be good". Amazing food, tastefully presented with great flavour combinations. Excellent coffee. VERY friendly staff. Good value and such that we returned four times during our stay in Sydney. Go you will not be disappointed!
