Open for lunch, daily (I think), next to the Prince Alfred Park swimming pool, this is a pretty damn fine combination: great food, friendly and competent service, comfy surroundings (inside if it’s too hot, but outside if you’d like) and, of course, a view of the ridiculously healthy and good-looking people of Sydney. In swimming trunks.
I’ve been to the Meadow Cafe a number of times, and the menu is clever and concise, it feels healthy, there’s usually an interesting daily special, and the food is fresh, tasty and somewhat sophisticated. My friend’s crab and corncakes looked delicious. My cobb salad had just the right combo of lettuce, dressing, tomatoes, bacon and chicken: not a complicated dish but well executed.
Each time I’ve been the waiters have been young, friendly and efficient women, providing great service.
