Sydney Food Diary: L’Americano, Alexandria

We were not going to fight with the crowds at The Grounds of Alexandria after dropping off our e-Waste on e-Waste disposal day (this was surprisingly satisfying to do). And while restaurants attached to stores can be hit and miss, … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Royale Specialty, Surry Hills

First, there was the Gnome Cafe. For years and years. I always thought it was cute: a compact place, busy but you could get a seat with some effort, serving great coffee. Then it was taken over by Brewtown for … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Sticky Fingers Kitchen and Bar, Surry Hills

I don’t know it took me so long to try out Sticky Fingers, just a block back from Oxford Street along the strip. It’s super close to where I live, and I’d heard rumours it was good. Now I’ve managed … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Two Chaps, Marrickville

So, walking up Chapel Street in Marrickville, this is a really non-descript street, some businesses which look like they’ve been around for a long time, a school, a boxy old office building. And then BAM. There’s a cafe, full, with … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: The Lookout, Elizabeth Bay Marina

What could be more beautiful than brunch with friends, next to the water, on a sunny summer morning? The last time I was by Elizabeth Bay Marina, it was still being constructed, so was basically just boarded up. Now, it … Continue reading

Is this the best bacon and egg roll in the Eastern Suburbs? I’m going out on a limb to say: yes. I mean, it’s a pretty perfect food already. Crispy bacon. Eggs. Breakfast. Mmmm… But I’ve often had ones that … Continue reading

Coffee in Sydney: Bowan Island Bakery, Zetland

Since I’m from Vancouver, Canada, which is not so far from Bowen Island, the name Bowan Island caused me to do a double-take. But internet research is offering no illumination. Aside from the name of a bakery that has become … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Pott’Spot, Potts Point

I confess: I passed up eating here previously because… of the sign. I couldn’t read it at first, and it looks more like Pott’Spat than Spot, which is an even more terrible name for a restaurant. The childish lettering, the … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: The Sconery, Chippendale

Sometimes you just have to have a scone, you know? Or at least that’s why we’re heading to the Sconery after a visit to the White Rabbit gallery (usually amazing but I was uninspired by this particular show). But Josh … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Bread & Circus, Alexandria

Yup, it was delicious. Conveniently located across from Dan Murphy’s (I’m only kind of joking), this warehouse space has always been appealing as a place for coffee, a snack or breakfast. Bread & Circus is brightly coloured and whimsical, and … Continue reading
