As Sydneysiders hit the beach or head up the coast for the Christmas and summer break, the coastal exodus means that the city can become a bit of a coffee and dining desert. But for those of us holidaying at home this summer, never fear, here’s a list of the dedicated restaurants and cafes that are keeping their doors open and the food and coffee flowing.

Note: times can change, so maybe call before you swing by. After all, everyone deserves a holiday!
