Surry Hills has long been a bastion of Sydney’s cafe culture, but in recent years that scene has steadily been migrating southward, towards Redfern. And it’s turned the traditionally working class, residential suburb into one of Sydney’s newest – and most exciting – hubs for hospitality.

Whether the needle’s been moved too far here is up for debate – many say that Redfern’s recent explosion in popularity hasn’t necessarily been the best thing for locals. What is inarguable though, is that Redfern’s assorted cafes are continually knitting together new communities and cultures in the suburb, and redefining it in the process.
