So we couldn’t leave our houses last weekend thanks to the actual hurricane going on outside—but this weekend nothing can keep us in! The Grand ol’ Queen has granted us an extra day off for her bday and we’re going to celebrate. Time to get outside and check out these Sydney restaurants and cafes.
Eat A Wood-fired Breakfast At Salt Meats Cheese In Drummoyne
What’s better on a cold winter’s morning than a cooked breakfast? Nothing. And when it’s wood-fired it’s even better. Salt Meats Cheese Drummoyne are starting up their wood-fired breakfasts this weekend and we haven’t been this excited to wake up on the weekend since Christmas. The Italian Pide Breakfast has us setting our alarms already and involve runny eggs with spinach, provolone and mozzarella...Yum!
Try The Potting Shed's New Menu
Your favourite restaurant-with-resident-parrot has a new and improved menu to get you up and out this weekend. The share plates at The Potting Shed are perfect for when you manage to drag a few friends along and the main meals are to die for. This winter menu has us heading out the door already to get a table—we’ve got our eye on the super warming game pie.
Check Out The Reservoir In Surry Hills
If you’re a fan of Greek food you need to get down to Surry Hills café, The Reservoir. All day breakfast is always a win for us and with a lunch and dinner menu also available, this is the kind of place you could spend all day. The mezze plates will have your table looking like a delicious spread much to the envy of diners around you.
Head To The Newly Re-opened Deus Bar & Kitchen
To the untrained eye the Deus Ex Machina store on Parramatta Road is just another motorbike shop, but next door Deus Bar & Kitchen have just relaunched after a refurb and they’re bringing Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food to Camperdown. Serving up dishes all day every day and with a cocktail menu bound to please—this place is not to be missed. They’ve got omelettes to get you going, pumpkin soup to warm the soul and roast Bannockburn chook to fill your belly. This is serious business.
Visit Bellagio In Bronte After Dark
It’s said to be one of the best brunch spots on the east side, but Bellagio really comes alive after dark. With over 50 (yes...50!) curated wines on offer and dishes like confit duck leg and charred cumin cauliflower to complement any you pick, we recommend you grab a few friends and make a night of it. Go all out...try it all.
It’s A Wine Weekend At Manly Wine
The ferries are back up and running and Manly Wine is waiting for you. Celebrate the long weekend by pretending you’re on the coast of France… mmm we can feel the sunshine already. This long weekend will see two of our favourite things (wine and cheese, FYI) come together at the Coast to Coast wine experience. Book here so you don’t miss out.
