  • Flying Egg

    Cafes St Leonards, NSW
    Flying Egg is a cute little cafe located at the station complex in St. Leonard's. We went there on a Saturday and it was very busy. We grabbed a table in the sun out the back and tuckered into a couple of coffees and breakfast. We had the baked eggs which were served in a cast iron skillet and a tomato base. We also tried the sweet corn fritters. These had a tangible sweet flavour which was unique from other corn fritters we have tried elsewhere - it was a pleasant surprise. Definitely a good place to stop off for an eat and coffee while in the area.
  • Coogee Bay Hotel

    Pubs & Bars Coogee, NSW
    Nice views of the ocean and the food menu offers up some excellent pub food! We were a group of 40 and pre ordered our meals - all went smoothly and the servings were generous!
  • Chargrill Charlies

    Restaurants Rose Bay, NSW
    This place is an institution in the eastern suburbs and if you try their chicken you will know why! The restaurant at rose bay is well set out and if you visit outside of peak lunch and dinner times you should grab a table and eat in. Ordering their chicken is a no brainer but deciding on what else to have will be difficult between the vast array of salads, vegetables, curries, burgers and other dishes. The lemongrass chicken and super salads are two of our favorites. Be sure to add your favorite Chargrill Charlie's sauce - ours is their peri peri. There is often a line to be served however it is definitely worth the wait!
  • La Mono

    Restaurants Merrylands, NSW
    This place is popular! Chicken, chips, salad, Lebanese bread and garlic sauce - absolutely delicious! Reasonably priced as well - $60 will get you 2 x large chips, 3 x chickens, salad, bread and a drink! No wonder why these restaurants are popping up everywhere!
  • Dymocks

    Bookstores Sydney, NSW
    Who doesn't love a good book store? This is also a great place to have lunch or a coffee particularly if you find yourself solo in the city. Buy yourself an interesting book and find yourself a seat at the cafe on level 2 - there is something on the menu for everyone.
  • Pilgrims Vegetarian Cafe

    Cafes Cronulla, NSW
    A vegetarian cafe not far from Coogee beach. The entrance is nothing to look at but upstairs is bright and well set out. Take a seat where you can and order at the counter. The coffees took a while to come out but they were delicious. Obviously all the menu items are vegetarian but for breakfast it's perfect! The granola was a huge serving and the sourdough with avo, pesto and mushrooms was tasty. Check it out if you are in the area.
  • Via Del Corso Pasticceria e Caffe

    Cake Shop Sydney, NSW
    Chocolates, cakes, macaroons and coffee - this is a place to indulge your tastebuds while you indulge you shopping habits at Westfield Sydney. With a huge selection of sweet tooth treats you are sure to find something that will entice your appetite. We went with the Chocolate Panna Cotta and Snickers Bar cake. The Chocolate Panna Cotta was creamy, rich and just the right mix of flavours. The Snickers flavoured cake was a caramel delight. Grab yourself a coffee to wash these down with a take a well earned rest from your shopping adventure
  • Spanish Fly

    Restaurants Randwick, NSW
    Cool name - check. Tapas - check. Cocktail Happy Hour - check. Heading into Randwick for a quick dinner and this place grabbed our attention. The setting and decor is awesome and instantly eases you into the evening. We enjoyed a cocktail each and the mixed dip plate. At $12, due to happy hour 6 - 7pm, the cocktails were worth it - also if you like them on Facebook during Happy Hour they will extend your hour for another 30mins (7:30pm). We ended up grabbing the scallops, beef carpaccio and paella balls from the tapas menu. All the food tasted great, however, the plates were expensive for the portion size. This place will be a repeat to stop in for a cocktail and single plate when catching up with a friend for a drink or prior to heading to the movies.
  • Jewel On The Bay

    Restaurants Rose Bay, NSW
    Amazing Indian food with a beautiful view. The menu is a huge as my appetite when I know that we are heading there for dinner. I love all the options but we will usually grab the chicken tikka masala and the Indian beer that they are serving at the time. If you can score a table outside you will be treated to an amazing harbour view. They do takeaway and the food is just as tasty when heading home to curl on the couch and binge some Netflix or Stan.
  • Speedo's Cafe

    Cafes North Bondi, NSW
    This is place is literally Bondi Beach. Located to the north - the views are breathtaking and each plate is instagram worthy in looks and a tastebud party for your mouth. Not feeling like heading in for a table - grab a takeaway coffee, a cronut and head over to one of the most iconic beaches in Sydney.
  • Anason

    Restaurants Barangaroo, NSW
    Part of the stunning line up of restaurants - Anason is a stylish lunch or dinner choice. The menu is designed to share and it's the type of place you want to book into for a long lunch. The restaurant offers a twist on Turkish cuisine with an excellent wine list to match.
  • The Precinct Shop

    Cafes Barangaroo, NSW
    This is a busy spot for coffee in the morning and the cafe gets very crowded with people ordering and then standing in the middle waiting for coffee. The toast and brekkie options are good however the staff are rude at times and a couple of times I have visited I have seen one particular staff member arguing with a customer over the counter whilst the other staff stood and watched. Unfortunately I have to say I would not recommend this spot.
  • Joe & The Juice

    Juice Bars Barangaroo, NSW
    Smack bang in barangaroo Joe & the Juice is popular. I wouldn't recommend the coffee here and they don't even serve toast but it's all about delicious fresh juices!
  • Ragu Pasta & Wine Bar

    Takeaways Sydney, NSW
    Ragu is a stylish Italian cafe/restaurant on lvl 5 of Westfield. This place is far and above what you would expect to find in a food court and is the perfect place to refuel from your shopping adventures. With the option of table service and a wine and beer list that deserves a home in a restaurant this is a great place to treat yourself. The menu options have a plethora of great Italian feasts to decide from. For starters we suggest that you grab the antipasto misto board. Heaped with cured meats, pickled veggies and cheese - this is something to start the meal off right. We ordered from the specials menu and had the scaloppine alla pizzaiola with a sweet potato salad. The meat was cooked perfectly and the combination of the black olives, roast potatoes and oregano toppings were delicious. Paired with the suggested red wine made this meal. We also tried the Pasta Dell?Oceano - spaghetti with prawns and calamari with a tomato base. Whether you are single or a couple try and grab a seat at the bar, the staff here are friendly and know their food and wine and are willing to talk you through the menu. Definitely recommended if you are in the area.
  • Where the Bean Drops

    Cafes Rozelle, NSW
    Where the Bean Drops has been open for about 4 months now and it is in a great spot on Darling Street between Rozelle and Balmain. The staff will make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. Make sure you try the coffee it is a brewtown blend the perfect combination of creamy and strong. It was a tough choice between the brekkie and lunch menu but we went for the breakfast bruschetta and the classic Mediterranean baked eggs. The baked eggs are the best choice for winter combining roast tomato, chorizo, Spanish onion, homemade sauce and Parmesan cheese with sourdough. The breakfast bruschetta had perfectly poached eggs and make sure you add salmon or prosciutto for something extra. This cafe is a little gem!
  • Butcher and the Farmer

    Restaurants Forest Lodge, NSW
    The tramsheds is a great place for brunch or dinner with friends. This cafe is in a good spot with tables outside. The menu is simple and the meals are not overly large.
  • West Juliett

    Cafes Marrickville, NSW
    A fabulous cafe in Marrickvile where the meals are restaurant quality. We were lucky enough to try a large selection of dishes including some new ones to be added to the menu. The house made granola with fruit and passion fruit curd tasted as delicious as it looked. For something different try the wild mushrooms on toast! The combination of mushrooms and the salsa verde worked perfectly and it's a nice change from the standard smashed avo. The green bowl here is my new favorite in Sydney and it is all to do with that salmon (tataki style). Even meat eaters will be loving this healthy option. The cafe offers an all day brunch menu but you will also be tempted by some of the lunch offerings - the Asian style barramundi was our top pick. On your way out grab yourself one of the massive in house made cookies - the pink salt choc chip is one you will get addicted to! Make sure West Juliet is on your regular brunch list and enjoy the fabulous menu made with only the freshest local produce.
  • Love.Fish Barangaroo

    Restaurants Barangaroo, NSW
    One of the beautiful new restaurants on the water at Barangaroo. A fantastic selection of wines and I'd recommend to share some of your favorite fish, starters and a side salad.
  • East Village Sydney

    Bottle Shops Darlinghurst, NSW
    Can't decide where to go in winter? East village hotel in Darlinghurst has you covered. A rooftop bar may be the last place you think of in the cold but the one at East Village has been transformed into a winter garden with fairy lights, heating and magnificent views of the city. To keep you warm opt for the mulled cider which was delicious. There is plenty of food on offer including some great share plates. The grilled halloumi skewers and the honey glazed ham board with spiced pear chutney were stand outs.
  • Long Kin

    Restaurants Pyrmont, NSW
    Long Kin is a fun, casual and tasty Thai place in Pyrmont. We went with the owner recommendations and left feeling full and satisfied. The vegetarian spring rolls were a tasty starter and we followed this up with a tofu stir fry packed full of veggies. The turmeric grilled chicken worked well with the stir-fry and boiled rice and had a delicious chilli and tamarind sauce. Our favourite dish was the noodle with mixed seafood ? soft & freshly made noodle with veggies, calamari, prawn, mussels and fish. To finish we just had room for dessert ? black sesame ice cream and sticky rice with banana. Grab some friends, order some wine and enjoy some freshly made Thai food.
