“Nice to wander”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Wander down the main street, there are plaenty or restaurants & cafes. Also, gallerys & antique shops on and off the main drag. Markets there every Saturday are quite good, a lot of second hand clothes but often there are good quality, hand made items. Definitely try "Friend in Hand" pub. Just a short walk down Cowper Street from Broadway and Glebe Pt Road.

“Nothing to do on a Saturday, visit Glebe.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

What a wonderful place to visit on a Saturday. If you enjoy the layed back, bohemian lifestyle, then Glebe is the place to visit.This Village becomes alive on a Saturday. If your looking for a place to eat, then there are numerous, multicultural cuisines just waiting to tangtilise your taste buds. If you want a great coffee, you can't beat Mano Cafe on St John's Road, their open from 7am & make the best coffee in Glebe. The local pub, ", The AB Hotel ", (abbrieviation for the Australian British hotel), on the corner of Glebe Point Rd and Pyrmont Bridge Road is a gem. The beer may be a little expensive but the atmosphere and food are to die for. It's a haven for the locals & back packers. You can't miss visiting Glebe markets, held every saturday, there's something to suit all. Glebe has so much to offer, food, art Galleries & culture. Worth a vist !

“great eats!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Glebe Point Road is the main road in Glebe. There are so many wonderful restaurants there of all different nationalities. My favorite was a Turkish place down on the right hand side of the road.... started with an M and was amazing! The Glebe Markets leave much to be desired. There is also a wine seller on the left hand side of the road specializing in Spanish wines. The owner is super nice and helpful. The area attracts a large crowd from the nearby Sydney University. Definitely a great place to visit if you're hungry!

“Close to town but hidden away”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Glebe is fantastic it is full of little parkways and water side walks. It is very close to the city but you wouldn't know it! When in Sydney taking a walk along Glebe Point Rd down to the water is well worth it there are lots of cafes and restaurants at an affordable price which makes for a fantastic atmosphere!

“Still vibrant and colourful, but a lot more expensive”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Kind of like North Kensington, but with Notting Hill prices. I miss the Valhalla. Badde Manors still looks the same although I remember the food being better twenty years ago...
