It’s a looong weekend (YAY!)—so that means you’ve got a whole extra day of eating to do. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out breakfast, lunch or dinner we’ve got one delicious weekend planned for you. 

Here are six Sydney cafes and restaurants to add to your long weekend hit list.

Laneway Cammeray


Tucked away in Cammeray, this little gem of a Sydney café will feed you good and proper. Focussing on fresh quality food and, of course, some of the best coffee in Cammeray, Laneway is the place to be for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The smashed avo on toast has become a cult favourite with poached eggs, spinach, feta, red pepper macadamia pesto, but if you’re after something heartier try the ‘good morning burger’ which is sure to leave you smiling. 

Devon on Danks


Sake to me! Devon on Danks has teamed up with Young Henrys and Sakenet to bring you an Asian inspired banquet with perfectly matched beer and sake. Head Chef Zachary Tan has drawn on his Malaysian upbringing with a menu that fuses East meets West flavours including some Devon by Night favourites. Go for the $85 Miyagi-San menu with lobster spring rolls, agedashi tofu, salmon tartare, and sticky pig tales or the smaller La Russo San menu for $70. With a banquet this good and drinks already sorted, the hard work is done so all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy. 

Boathouse Palm Beach

Palm Beach

Escape the chaos of the city and head up to The Boathouse for lunch at picturesque Palm Beach. This sunny café is popular with Sydneysiders for its fabulous location and exceptional modern Australian menu (which is why they’re always full to the brim on weekends). Grab a bucket of prawns, a couple of beers and find a spot on the back deck to soak up the sun and watch the seaplanes fly in. 

Ironwood Coffee


Ironwood Coffee is not just a coffee roaster and cafe, they’re also known make a mean Greek feast too. Greek favourites spanakopita, haloumi with peppered figs saganaki or the meze Greco are a good starting point, if you’re having a hard time deciding. There’s also wood-fired pizza, pasta, slow roasted lamb or pork belly and seafood all nestled into that menu, so you’d better come ready to eat. 

So 9


At some stage this weekend take yourself down to Danks Street for some tasty, tasty banh mi from So 9. Pork rolls are not the only thing on the menu at this new Sydney restaurant—there are many other Vietnamese favourites here too. Perfect for fuss free lunch or dinner that’s full of flavour, So 9 is exactly what you want on the long weekend.

North Bondi Fish

North Bondi

Enjoy the cracking weather this weekend and head down to Bondi like a true Sydneysider. With summer in the air there is no better way to enjoy spectacular views and delectable seafood than with lunch or dinner at North Bondi Fish. Savour the afternoon with a mix of small plates like the seared scallops, snow crab sliders and whiting tacos over a couple of cold beers. And why not top it all off with an adult popsicle?!
