A beautiful greenhouse-like shed in Parramatta Park is home to Misc, an all-day diner celebrating Mediterranean flavours and communal dining. And whether you choose the large indoor dining room or the outdoor space surrounded by trees and lush greenery, the Misc menu is one of the most versatile you’ll find in Sydney.

For breakfast, you can build your own plate from options including focaccia with rosemary oil; smoked labneh with salsa; pea, zucchini and kefalograviera (a Greek sheep’s milk cheese) fritters; and more. Substantial breakfasts include Misc’s take on the spanakopita; a sucuk and egg roll with cheddar; and hotcakes with berries and ricotta.

The lunch menu is similarly organised – but there are also heftier options including rigatoni with mussels and tomato sugo; a roasted half chicken with toum; and the spectacular deli sandwich stacked with mortadella, salami, pastirma and chilli mayo.

To drink, there’s a make-your-own Margarita tray, which comes with options including chilli, grapefruit mist and spiced macadamias and citrus. There’s also a good selection of natural wines, and several alcohol-free cocktail options. Drinks and coffee are made behind a curved counter, with shelves of wine and spirits sitting beneath illuminated arches.

Misc also stocks supplies for picnics in the park, including Olsson’s salt, tins of Ortiz anchovies, and a range of hot sauces and olive oils.
