Caf Ella is great with a great range of breakfast and lunch selections, its definitely the place to go. The staff there are very pleasant, a little bit hip and quirky and the tucker is tasty and honest. A favourite of mine is the lentil stew, with a chunk of goats feta, an olive and thick sliced bread for good measure, its a more than generous helping you can share between 2 (depending on how hungry you are of course!). Its simple and delicious. They do tasty pastas and all of the portions I have seen are very generous. They have a nice section downstairs and out the back in the courtyard and theres a lovely light and airy upstairs area with big tables. I quite like the idea of sitting at the same table as strangers, its a nice communal feeling. Definitely this is my pick of the cafes on Abercrombie street.
This Redfern/Darlington local is rather perfectly positioned halfway between Redfern station and the University of Sydney. It is one of those great local cafes that have regulars who come every day, the staff are friendly, if a little eccentric, and the food menu is all written up on a chalkboard behind the kitchen. Everything is cooked and prepared fresh after ordering, and there is sure to be something for everything on this extensive menu. Choose from breakfast options, sandwiches, bagels, salads, and then hot options like lentil stew and pastas. The pasta arrabiata is my favourite, a slightly spicy tomato sauce, with bacon, onions, olives and capers, covers penne, and comes with a slice of bread with a peppery olive oil sprinkled on top and freshly grated parmesan,read more
Peter the owner/cook of Cafe Ella cooks his his own boiled bagels every morning. There are only two kinds - blueberry and poppy seed. Both are delicious.
But don't leave it until the end of the day to call in as they might be all gone.
It is worth a trip to Chippendale just to try them out.
