Hard to get a table inside or outside but worth it if you can. Try the Pork Sald, it's awesome with the pulled pork and crunchy noodles.

Dozens of people cue up at this place every weekend, we never made it in! Today (Tuesday) we made it! And it is worth while cueing! The coffee was great, perfect crema, nice temperature, just like you want it! Food was delicious: fresh ingredients, lovely crisp artisan sourdough bread, tasty, right amount. Definitely a brekkie worth waiting for! We will... More

Wow, this place is packed on a Sunday morning but well worth waiting for! Inside or out? Get amongst it with the enthusiastic diners inside even though it is 38 degrees and probably hotter in the kitchen. Service is good considering how busy they are! Great coffees to start. Fight the Power superfood smoothie with banana, cacao, soy milk, toasted... More

A great place for breakfast or lunch, with plenty of menu choices and generous sized, very tasty meals. The option of having both breakfast and lunch choices from 11am for the family was great. Good coffee and juices, with very welcoming, friendly, and helpful staff. Definitely worth a return visit.

Love the good menu, the friendly and apologetic service (an inevitable wait if more than 1) and the general ambiance of the place.

This place was recommended to us for breakfast on a recent visit to Sydney - so glad we took up that recommendation! We visited twice during a three day stay, staff very friendly and greeted us with a 'welcome back' on our second morning. Lovely to see the regulars being greeted by name as they dropped in for coffee on... More

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
