It's no secret that here at The Urban List we're always looking for the best cafés in Sydney. So naturally when we stumbled upon the newly revamped Marcelle café in Potts Point we were immediately salivating. Think brioche with dulche de leche laden with hazelnut and banana or French toast dripping with orange mascarpone and mixed berries and you'll start to get a sense of what we mean. Yes, here it's all about the good stuff.
Set right across from the iconic Potts Point fountain, Marcelle has already garnered a cult following amongst the locals, and it's pretty easy to see why. There's outdoor seating where you can soak up the sun, or get cosy within the small space indoors. There's no set breakfast or lunch menu, but a mouthwatering range of options to choose at anytime, as well as daily specials.
Locally sourced ingredients feature heavily on the menu, for example Brasserie Bread provides the carbs while organic Ovvio tea will nourish your insides. Come midday when you're looking for something to dig your teeth into, be sure to order one of their delectable sandwiches with toppings like cured salmon with Spanish onion salsa, spicy eggplant, bocconcini and rocket pesto, or roast chicken with aioli and slaw. Off the gluten? No worries, Marcelle has you kids covered with their signature maple crunch, soft-baked eggs with goat's curd and salmon and quinoa salad. Most of the menu items are also available for take-away which is super convenient for those on the go.
Now for you caffeine nuts, coffee from Allpress is brewed to perfection. Choose from the Carmelo, a lively and full-bodied blend with distinct caramel flavours, or go for the rich Full City with long fruit flavours and a spice finish. Non-coffee drinkers, we highly recommend Marcelle's creamy salted caramel milkshakes that'll take you back to your childhood. Or, for the green enthusiasts, there's also a selection of tasty fresh juices such as the Vitamin C Hit (orange, carrot and ginger) and Revitalise (apple, beetroot, celery and ginger).
Yes Marcelle, you have thought of everything and we are predicting big things for this Potts Point café.
