  • Country Road
    Clothing Retailers    Ryde, NSW

    Great country road with friendly staff and lots of stock. The layout is clean and open so you can for a pram through the aisles and comfortably shop. The staff are friendly too. The store is a little hard to find as it is 'outside' the main building on the left the opposite direction from the restaurants.
    The quality of country road clothes are good, but I prefer buying their clothes when they are on sale.

  • Esprit
    Clothing Retailers    Drummoyne, NSW

    A newly renovated store with lots of casual wear. As I walked past the entrance I saw "50% off marked prices" and "75% off marked prices". My heart leaped at the possibility of finding some nice bargains... Unfortunately I didn't find anything nice, my friend found a pair of track suit pants that looked to be of good quality. They were $89! Even after 50% off we thought that was a but much.

  • Sheridan
    Department Stores    Drummoyne, NSW

    Most people will agree that Sheridan is the brand in linen. Bedding and towels are their specialty and this store is an outlet where you can often find sets at half price. If you are not fussed with designs you can find king sheet sets for $150, quilt covers for $105 and pillow cases for $20. There are not many staff but the store wasn't that busy when I was there on a Saturday.

  • Witchery
    Clothing Retailers    Drummoyne, NSW

    This store is a mishmash of clothes from different seasons. With the sales just ending in store, this outlet shop was full to overflowing with stock just sent in. Lots of clothes but you need to rummage a bit to find sizes.
    Shoes are on the left as you walk in, directly on the right lies kids and men's, and the second row is all women's clothes.
    Always check what you are purchasing though because some of the seconds sometimes get mixed up.

  • Springfields Designer Labels
    Clothing Retailers    Drummoyne, NSW

    If you love bargains and beautiful dresses this is a treasure trove for formalwear! I've been to a few of their other stores but this one seems to have more stock. The clothes are arranged by size so it is easy to browse through and find something. They usually have only 1 of each dress so it is a bit of luck finding something you like, and in your size- but when you do... It's fun! Staff are friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable with formal dresses ranging from $99 to $300.

  • Revolver
    Cafes    Annandale, NSW

    Amazing place for breakfast and it seems many others agree... Vintage and rustic tea cup adorned the shelves, and ole stools and chair create a homely feel to this corner-cafe. The line is a little long so be prepared to wait around 20 minutes for a table. Belle who greeted us took our names down and ensured we were comfortable. We ordered the big breakfast and it certainly didn't disappoint. A cast iron pan filled with warm-belly ingredients such a pork and fennel sausage, beans, mushrooms, baked eggs... Served with a slice of delicious sourdough and some heavenly oil-parsley lemony side. Delicious! The service is friendly and even though they are very busy they are still attentive. Will definitely recommend this place!

  • Oasi Wine Bar / Drink Better Wine
    Restaurants    North Sydney, NSW

    Beautiful food, friendly service and a good selection of beers and wine. Lots of seating on large wooden tables.

  • Big Bear Shopping Centre
    Shopping Centres    Neutral Bay, NSW

    The local shopping mall of neutral bay/ mosman. The bus stop is right outside so it is very convenient. There are pretty much just basic shops, an optometrist and medical centre outside the main area. Good for a quick grocery shop.

  • Big Stone
    Restaurants    North Sydney, NSW

    Japanese tapas- great idea! The food is delicious and the menu is varied enough to visit a few times. They have a good assortment of beer and the seafood is fresh and presented nicely. The $18 lunch special let's you select 3 tapas dishes (restricted menu items) and you get pumpkin soup and bread.
    Nice leisurely lunch but the food take a fair bit of time to come out.

  • Jonga Jip Korean Restaurant
    Specialty Food    Eastwood, NSW

    I love coming here on a cold winter's night. Hot flaming BBQ and hot pots full of spicy soup and seafood. The service is quick and anytime you need something you can just press the doorbell on your table. The food is delicious and the ambience is family friendly and casual.

  • AIR Coffee
    Takeaways    Castle Hill, NSW

    Great sandwiches and pasta for a nice quick lunch. Their coffee is fantastic and there is plenty of space for kids and lots of seating for groups.

  • The Boathouse Palm Beach
    Restaurants    Palm Beach, NSW

    After falling in love with the balmoral boatshed, only to have limited seating availability issues rip away one of my favourite spots in Sydney- I decided to visit the original. Situation in the heart of Summer bay, I mean, Palm Beach, this trendy, nautical themed cafe is identical to the vibe of the balmoral one, except there are lots more places to sit here. If you aren't familiar with the 'process', you come in, find a table, anywhere there is a seat really, then you line up to order. The line is long so I suggest you have someone queue up, while the others stare at their phones, looking at a photograph of the menu at the table. The food is simple, fresh ingredients presented nicely. The staff are friendly and given this place is packed, they do a great job serving and cleaning up promptly. If it gets windy and cold, they provide ikea felt-like blankets.
    The only downside? The bathrooms... But I don't want to talk about the details, but the state it was in was not ideal.

    Overall, I love this place, couple it with a walk along the beach and a little hike to the lighthouse and you have a perfect Sydney stay-cation.

  • Istana Restaurant
    Restaurants    Thornleigh, NSW

    Been coming here for years and it is a family favourite. The prices have increased but their standard is still good even after decades of serving Malaysian-Chinese cuisine in the hills area. As you can tell from the photos the chicken rice here is very popular. Sweet and succulent chicken with all the necessary accomplishments such as ginger, chilli sauce, shallots and black sauce. Their what-tun hor is great too and the servings are large.


  • Kintaro Restaurant
    Restaurants    Neutral Bay, NSW

    I have been coming to Kintaro for a number of years, but it had been a while since my previous visit. 'Country style Japanese bistro' is the way Kintaro describes itself. With a homely feel, the dishes are delicious and resemble traditional comfort food. Fried Chicken here is very popular and the sashimi is very fresh. The staff are attentive and the prices are reasonable given the portion sizes are generous.
    Great place and I can't believe I hadn't been here in so long.

  • Yoros Seafoods
    Butchers    North Sydney, NSW

    Fresh seafood cooked to order. $8 lunch special is great value. They also sell fresh fish! I like to see what looks good and they cook it- salmon, snapper sea perch... It's all delicious!

  • Mecca Cosmetica
    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    Mecca Cosmetica is probably the closet store we have to 'sephora' with multiple brands and skin products. The staff are super friendly and let you try different products, giving you plenty of information about skincare and what beauty products suit different skin types.

  • The Body Shop
    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    The Body Shop stocks their own cruelty free products that aren't tested on animals and have earth conscious packing. I especially like their vitamin serums and body balms. The prices are a little pricey but the prices are pretty consistent around the world.

  • General Pants Co- Chatswood
    Clothing Retailers    Chatswood, NSW

    Located right near the entrance of the Westfield complex this General Pants is large store with the latest street wear. Stocking brands such as All about Eve, Nudie Jeans and Havianas, its a great store to grab some on trend high street clothes and accessories. The staff are really young and friendly, there is definitely a fun vibe!

  • Tokyo Bike
    Bike Shops    Surry Hills, NSW

    Located in the back of the Paramount Coffee Project cafe, there is a fun hipster themed bike shop selling Tokyo Bikes. The space is clean and bright and there are lots of beautiful retro bicycles to look through. They also sell cool accessories, such as see-through bike bells, wooden finished helmets and custom bags.
    Great place to wander into when you are waiting for a table at the cafe.

  • New Shanghai Chinese Restaurant
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    Still one of my favourite places to eat with friends and family. It may be located in humble surroundings, but the food is delicious. They have specials and large portions in this New Shanghai compared to it's sister store in the Chatswood Chase food court, plus there are more seats. The service is very quick and they are happy to provide chilli paste and tea.
