Hartsyard is a real favourite with the Newtown locals, and with good reason. They specialise in great service, understated décor and top-notch southern US-style grub, including the delectable pulled pork with maple bacon, labna and apple. It’s a hearty meal cooked to perfection, and it’ll make you damn happy you’re not a vegetarian.

Whiskey. Maple. Bacon. Donuts. You’re probably quite familiar with each of these separately, but have you ever considered the possibility of combining them into one glorious flavour sensation? Shortstop certainly has, and their Whiskey Maple Bacon Donut is an absolute joy to devour. The coffee’s great as well, and it’s super close to the harbour so you can enjoy your meal with a view.
“Their donuts are very well made and unlike other donut shops that play with bright colours and sweetness overload, their donuts have real substance. For example, their milk chocolate & chestnut filled donut was to die for and has always been my favourite. They also have seasonal items so you can always come back and find new flavours.” – Easternian
From the crazy wall mural to the swanky, low-hanging lights, BL Burgers is a fabulous setting in which to chow down on some mighty fine food. These are some of the yummiest burgers in Sydney, and you can’t look past the “Blame Canada” for a proper bacony feast. That’s a BL’s special beef patty, maple-glazed streaky bacon, American cheese, and poutine. Wonderful stuff.
“Some of the best burgers I’ve eaten. Their revolving specials are the highlights of my monday morning waiting for them to launch.” – Isaac Martin
When you want traditional, handmade excellence, you can’t go past Mercado. This amazing restaurant works with smaller, trusted farms to bring us the freshest, highest quality produce available – and you can really taste the difference. The space is elegantly decorated, and the menu switches around a lot depending on what’s available. When you can, however, don’t miss the chance to try the dulce de leche with butterscotch and candied bacon. Our mouths are watering already.
