You always join the longest queue when waiting for food. It's a give away of the people's opinion. Wait 20 minutes for a table and you will be rewarded with a really great Breakfast. I had the Moroccan eggs and wife had the mixed platter. Both outstanding. I noted while waiting outside the restaurant all the very positive compliments of... More

Our hotel, QT BONDI suggested Brown Sugar for breakfast for our jet lagged family of 4. The service was good, but the food was fantastic. It was quite cold-so they even had fuzzy blankets to wrap up in aside from the space heaters. Great choice!

Unarguably the best Breakfast I ever had. A small and a busy restaurant close to the Bondi beach, we were lucky to get a table. Food is excellent with friendly staff. Pancakes with bacon, a lovely fusion unforgettable. Honestly, I never had bacon before and I am gonna have bacon every day after tasting here.

At Brown Sugar the food is always excellent. Lovely little spot to come with friends or family. Professional and friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Love the all-day brunch menu they have. My favourite dishes are the Vegie black stone, Mojo eggs and the Onion and mushroom bialy. Great hidden spot away from the touristic streets of Bondi..one of the best... More

We arrived without a reservation when they were obviously slammed. The waitstaff arranged our seating without a hassle and couldn't have been more accommodating. Wow, the black stone eggs and Moroccan eggs. Our coffees were spot on. Great atmosphere. A new favourite. We'll be back to try the dinner menu.

Brown Sugar where to begin! My wife and I were visiting the Eastern Suburb Beaches and stumbled across this fantastic eatery through a flyer where we were staying. We also tried to get into another place near by but were put off by the rude and couldn't care less attitude of the staff seating people. Walked around to Brown Sugar... More

4 of us arrived on a busy Saturday morning for breakfast - no reservation. The coffee and food were great, as mentioned by other reviewers. The service was friendly. I ordered food with marmalade on the side for the toast - on the menu. When the food arrived, it came with an apology that the marmalade had run out, but... More

Can't go wrong with brown sugar - have been going here for years. Service can sometimes be a little slow but who cares when you're weekend brunching

The service is great. Had the bread/olives and octopus for entree. Fish pie for the main was heavenly - I highly recommend. I wish we had room for dessert!! Restaurant is cosy- however you don't feel cramped. Can't wait to come back again!
