At the quiet end of Oxford Street, a cute Sydney café has opened its doors serving Single Origin coffee, cold-pressed almond milk smoothies and pork belly sandwiches, all of which we’re pretty pleased about.
Fusing Scandinavian design with Japanese influences (which seems to be a new trend on Sydney’s café scene), Four Six Eight boasts a sunny interior, with a tiny courtyard out the back. They’re keeping the menu pretty simple–many of the ingredients are locally sourced, with staples from Pepe Saya, Bondi Yoghurt and Hank’s Jam.
For breakfast there’s Farmer Jo’s bircher, smoked salmon with scrambled egg, avocado and house made tomato dressing, as well as a tasty bacon and egg roll that we’d happily wrap our hands around. On the lunch menu, standouts include braised pork belly with coriander, pickles and mixed leaves in a steamed bun, or a daily pick of rice paper rolls and sandwiches.
There’s a cabinet full of goodies like gluten-free chocolate brownies and raw breakfast bars, which we can’t seem to take our eyes off (needless to say we order a few to take home).
Whether you’re popping in for a takeaway, a sit down brekkie or a lunch date, Four Six Eight has certainly raised the standard for cafes in Paddington.
