It might be the tastiest long weekend of the year, but it's about more than chocolate eggs and hot cross buns. There has to be a square meal and a cocktail in there somewhere.

If you’re staying in Sydney to enjoy a few days of freedom at home, here’s the line-up of dedicated cafes, restaurants and watering holes that are staying open to have you covered between chocolate courses, bless their souls...

Note: Licensed venues have restrictions on Good Friday and opening times can change, so we suggest calling before you drop in.
