This is more showroom than cafe, with coffee from one of Sydney's most experienced baristas.
For house-roasted coffee and uncomplicated food.
A menu that doesn’t sacrifice flavour to achieve its nourishing tag, and a drinks list that’s all about fermentation.
Whether you’re stopping in for that iconic lasagnette bolognaise or just a snack, Frat Paz nails it every time. Its groundbreaking wine list introduced the city to many minimal-intervention styles we're now obsessed with.
Don’t be fooled by this cafe’s modest appearance – it can do plenty in its tiny kitchen.
Great coffee and a Thai-influenced menu.
Relaxed and polished with cafe cred.
An even smaller version of Redfern's favourite hole-in-the-wall.
Delicious, uncomplicated food all day.
Here's where we're eating right now.
A laksa institution opened in 1987. A peerless vegan fine diner. A lunchtime only spot by a celebrity chef. And more.
A subterranean French bistro. A Tuscan-inspired steakhouse. A sky-high diner by a Michelin-starred chef. And more.
