As I’ve said before, Sydney’s a tough place to open a restaurant or cafe. It’s not enough to have good food, or a good idea. It has to be the right vibe for the right place as well. So, it’s great to see that the corner of Devonshire and Holt Street is hopping busy at the Ouroboros Organic Wholefoods Cafe.
Rather than the usual Surry Hills chic, this has a really casual cafe feel to it, as you can see. But on the rainy Thursday morning that I stopped in for coffee, there was a sizeable line waiting to order, and when I did order, I got a really, cheery and warm welcome, so sincere that I was jolted out of the rain!
I can’t really judge the cafe as a whole since all I’ve had both times I’ve been there is coffee (delicious) and one of the rather delicious sweet treats (this time a pistachio, coconut, cranberry bar: gluten-free!). But it’s easy to guess this cafe is doing just fine, and is a good option if you’re in the area.
