Nice lahmacun and coffee. Various Lebanese pastries and sweets. They also stock nice Middle Eastern groceries. It is a nice cafe to visit for a coffee and snacks.

A1 might be the only affordable brunch spot left in Brunswick. It’s a long-time fave of mine and I definitely recommend to travellers, including vegos and vegans on a budget - yep, there’s plenty for you here too. The spinach triangle and zataar with veggies...More

For a fast, cheap meal this place is great. However as a first timer it took a while to work out the system. Order at the counter, no dithering because of the queue waiting behind you, and take your cutlery as you head to your...More

Lots of eateries on Sydney Road but this one is a beauty. Huge choice of Lebanese mostly pastries /wraps/pizzas. Good value and interesting flavours with pleasant service even though busy. Transport easy to get there from the city. Must go again..

The A1 is an institution. Run by a Lebanese Maronite Christian family for years, its mixture of cheap and tasty "pizza", kitsch decor, dirt cheap coffee, and specialist groceries - along with unpredictable local color from Sydney Road - make this a must-do. Don't expect...More
