Let’s just say, back in the day, a bottomless brunch was truly unheard of. Fast forward to the here and now, and Sydney is a sprawling metropolis of free-flowing mimosas, bottomless margaritas, endless sangria and unlimited bubbles.

Yep, the bottomless brunch train isn’t about to stop any time soon so grab a ticket and get ready to ride out this glorious Sydney rite-of-passage to the best damn feast of your life (and the best way to start out any big weekend, in our opinion).

Here are all the best places to indulge in a bottomless brunch in Sydney.

Restaurant opening hours and menu offerings may be different due to current COVID-19 restrictions. We recommend calling ahead for details and making a booking. 

La Farmacia

Darlinghurst

Tucked behind Mrs Palmers Sandwich on Stanley Street in Darlinghurst, La Farmacia is a mezcal and tequila den heroing proper Guadalajara-style feeds. The joint has already worked up a rep of churning out some of the best margaritas in Sydney (about 20 variations to be exact) and it’s a pretty solid place to hit with your mates, especially if you’re keen to work your way through an impressive menu of boutique Mexican spirits while listening to some bangin’ Mexican hip hop.

La Farmacia has announced a brand new weekend bottomless special—and it's a doozy. Basically, the team is offering free-flowing margaritas (classic or Tommy’s), Mexican beer, or rosé every Saturday, for 90-minutes. With this, you’ll also get a set brunch menu packed with freshly fried corn chips, salsa, flamed-grilled corn, seasonal fish ceviche, tacos and, to close it all off, churros served with dulce-de-leche.

Cost: $85 per person
What you get: Free flowing margaritas, beer and rosé and a brunch set menu
When: Every Saturday, 11am-2pm

Hello Auntie

Darling Square

Every Saturday, the team at Hello Auntie in Darling Square is plating up a mix of Vietnamese brunch dishes with a twist. You’ll be able to order up bo tai (similar to Italian carpaccio) with aged beef tartare, truffle, capers and shallots; ca hoi tai with cured salmon, creme fraiche, tamarind gel and Jerusalem artichoke, XO prawn dumplings, and even Goi Cuon, a baller DIY rice paper roll kit.

To wash everything down there are bottomless glasses of fruity spritz which look like passionfruit grape, strawberry lime, or lychee ginger. You can also get super fancy with Polanco Baerii sturgeon caviar, Yarra Valley brook trout gold caviar, Vietnamese flatbread, and egg salad, and creme fraiche, for an extra $20 per person. 

Cost: $70 per person, $20 extra per person for “baller” additions
What you get: Bottomless spritz and a mix of Vietnamese brunch dishes with a twist (and dogs welcome)
When: Every Saturday, 12pm-2pm

Surly’s

Surry Hills

This Surry Hills American-style tavern slash sports bar (and one of our fave burger joints) is hosting two-hour feasting sessions on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays that involves a bunch of smoked meats and a whole lot of beer. 

From the Ole Hickory smoker you’ll be treated to 8-hour dry-rubbed beef brisket, 12-hour pulled pork, smoked chicken thigh, Texas hot link sausage, smoked chicken wings, pickles, onion, and cornbread. Wash it all down with ice-cold beer, or choose from a selection of wine instead.

Cost: $85 per person
What you get: Bottomless beer and BBQ feeds for two hours
When: Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday

Rocker Bondi

Bondi

Bondi’s casual neighbourhood haunt, Rocker Bondi, has just kicked off a brand new bottomless brunch. If you’ve never been here, the feeds pay homage to all the best things about living on the coast, so you’re in for a European menu with local ingredients from the land and sea. 

The big standouts on this bottomless brunch feast are without a doubt the local burrata served with pumpkin, pepitas and pumpkin seed oil. After this, it has to be the slow roast lamb shoulder paired with honey puree and fermented chilli dressing. You’ll also get Iggy’s sourdough with roast onion butter and to top it all off, Rocker’s signature orange and almond polenta cake (orange mascarpone included).

The seating requires a minimum of four people and your bottomless booze package includes the likes of mimosas, reds, whites or rosé. You can also upgrade so your brunch can have an arrival spritz ($10 extra), bottomless beer ($10 extra), bottomless margaritas ($45 extra) and even an espresso martini to finish ($10 extra).

Cost: $85 per person
What you get: A number of Euro-inspired share plates, bottomless mimosas, reds, whites and rosé (option to upgrade for bottomless beer and margaritas)
When: Thursday - Sunday

Sonora Mexican

Potts Point

Nestled inside the streets of Potts Point and from the same team that brought you Bondi Taqiza, Carbon and La Palma, is the Mexican restaurant and mezcal bar—Sonora Mexican. The feeds here are a nod towards the cuisine of Sonora, a coastal state in Mexico’s north-west famous for its “tacos chingones”, which quite literally translates to “badass tacos”.

Sonora is a frontrunner on Sydney’s bottomless brunch scene on account of its all-encompassing menu which means unlimited tacos, unlimited margaritas, unlimited rosé and unlimited Tecate beer. The session spans two-hours and in that space of time, you’ll get to gorge yourself on grass-fed lamb tacos, roasted cauliflower tacos, marinated chicken tacos, grilled barramundi tacos and wild mushroom tacos (and the flour tortillas here are made in-house and fresh to order).

There are also five margarita varieties to choose from to take your mezcal-fuelled antics to a whole new level, with the top-shelf mezcal sourced from boutique Mexican distilleries.

Cost: $79 per person
What you get: Unlimited tacos and unlimited margaritas, beer or rosé for two hours.
When: Saturday and Sunday, 12pm - 5pm

CBD

The huge 1200sqm space features a live hanging garden terrace and outdoor bar, lots of greenery and multiple private and semi-private dining rooms. Marble plays a big role here too, with stone quarried from all around the world: there’s a luxurious nine-metre bar crafted from Emperador dark gold Spanish marble, tabletops are made with Veria Green marble from Greece and glossy black Nero Marquina marble flooring from Northern Spain.

On the food front, it’s the biggest expression of the best of Middle Eastern fare and the bottomless mezze and mimosas brunch pays huge homage here. You’ll get to knock back everything on Babylon's mezze menu which includes flatbread and za’atar butter, hummus with wattle seed dukkah, olive oil and leblei, pan-fried haloumi, traditional lentil kofte, broad bean falafel and lamb kofte with iskender sauce and herb yoghurt.

Cost: $50 per person
What you get: Bottomless mimosas and Babylon’s entire mezze menu
When: Saturday and Sunday, 10.30am - 12pm

Alongside free-pour rose, Espresso Martinis and Aperol or Persian spritz, you’re in for dishes like the “Al-Muhuffini”, which is Nour’s spin on the classic Maccas McMuffin, made with spiced lamb merguez sausage topped with a fried egg and batata harra hash brown. 

There’s also executive chef Ben Williamson's signature sticky Bekaa chicken wings with harissa emulsion and rose petals from Gerard's Bistro in Queensland, halva hotcakes with cardamom ice cream, and a pressed watermelon and barberry served with pistachio friand, berry salad and set cream.

You’ll need a minimum of four mates to play, but for 65 beans, you score chickpea and mushroom fritters, trout ceviche, shoestring fries and of course, a whole heap of tacos.

Basically, if you order up any main (we suggest hitting the mushroom and parmesan bruschetta or try your hand at the hefty stack of ricotta hotcakes loaded with syrup and pistachio butter), you’ll also be able to add on a two-hour session of free-flowing mimosas for just $25.

From there, you've got the option of two hours of bottomless booze. You can pick and choose between free-flowing Madame Coco sparkling wine, mimosas and bellinis or endless cups of Bertaine rosé.
