Cook and Archie's in Surry Hills is a friendly, centrally located cafe serving a range of light meals and sandwiches. A great spot to unwind in the coffee lounge or grab some take away on the go.
This place is an experience for lovers of food, beautiful decor and great coffee - you may even be lucky enough to have some amazing 3D coffee art. Cook & Archies have breakfast and lunch options and we were lucky enough to sample both and it's a struggle to pick the best plate. From the breakfast menu we tried the Spanish Baked Eggs, Eggs Bennie, Chilli Scrambled Eggs, Bircher, the Breakfast Bowl, and their French toast. Where to start with these options. Firstly, for a health kick that has amazing flavour and a serving size that will impress we loved the breakfast bowl - avo, miso kale, pickled veg and delicious poached eggs. This dish was massive and would get anyone energized for their upcoming day. If you are looking for a more traditional breakfast grab yourself the Eggs Bennie - the bacon is THICK CUT and the benedict sauce is light and refreshing. The dish is garnished with the most succulent maple bacon crumb, I almost wanted this as a side on its own.read more
Tucked away in the corner of Buckingham street was this little gem! The baked eggs with chorizo, red pepper confit and goats cheese was absolutely yummy and I can see myself going back for more very very soon!! However the calamari was a disappointment as I felt like it did not match the description on the menu and for $22 I don't think I'll be getting it again. Coffee was good also! Looking forward to trying more at the newly discovered cafe!
