Depending on when you visit, Surry Hills can feel like two totally different suburbs. During the week it's an extension of the CBD, where suits hurry by and takeaway lunch spots barely get a break. But when the weekend comes around, the pace slows down and sit-down cafes such as Reuben Hills and Cuckoo Callay are populated with chatty groups of friends. As such, there's a diverse range of options here that suit almost any occasion.
