Here at The Urban List, we’re partial to a post-workout brunch. We mean, they do say life’s all about balance. Whether it’s sunrise yoga followed by mimosas and ricotta pancakes, or a harbourside stroll topped off with avo toast and a cold brew on the go – a weekend in Sydney isn’t complete without a visit to our favourite post-workout brunch spots, all at Barangaroo.
So fire up the group chat because we've rounded up the perfect go-to weekend outing for you and your pals...
Stop 1: Get ultimate zen…
Stop, drop and yoga with views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at Barangaroo Reserve. There are stacks of flat lawns for you and your crew to roll out your yoga mats and get bendy by the harbourside, DIY style. Not to mention your Insta game will be level 10, as those sleepy sloths scrolling in bed on a Saturday morning get some serious FOMO.
Or for an indoor option…
The Space Studio
We’ve discovered the sleekest yoga studio in Sydney and it’s tucked away in Barangaroo. Featuring yoga, pilates, barre and meditation, The Space Studio was designed to flip everything you know about exercise on its head, using light projections and soundscapes to inspire the mood and energy of your practice. Kick off your weekend with their signature Barre Amplify class and you won’t be disappointed.
Stop 2: Feed those post-workout cravings…
All those sun salutations got you working up an appetite? Head down to Wild Sage, who offer a special weekend brunch menu featuring highlights like the spiced smashed avocado, baked egg shakshuka and asparagus chickpea pancakes (with prosciutto dust!). If you’re there on a weekday, don’t skip the chilli scramble special.
Joe & The Juice
On the run? Joe & The Juice have you covered - quick smart. Just think fresh juices and shakes, crispy toasted sandwiches and freshly ground coffee #drool. Your post-yoga cravings will love locally sourced ingredients, and so will your bank account – if you’ve outdone yourself this month on your activewear spend like us.
Bel & Brio
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Bel & Brio offers brunch until 11am, serving up classics like cinnamon spiced poached pear, breakfast bruschetta, sicilian baked eggs and their famous warm waffles (topped with hazelnut praline, fresh wild berries and pistachio crumbs). Coffee snobs won’t be disappointed with Will & Co. coffee on offer, but do try to get there early if you want to snap up a coveted outdoor table.
Belle’s Hot Chicken
How does 90 minutes of bottomless bloody marys served with a side of waffles and fried chicken sound? Every weekend from 11:30am – 1:00pm, Belle’s Hot Chicken in Barangaroo serves up this mother of all brunch deals for just fifty bucks per head. Bookings are a must as there’s often a queue around the corner (you’ll understand why once you’ve tasted their signature chicken crunch).
Serving up traditional brunch favourites with an Asian twist, Devon Cafe boasts an impressive brunch menu perfect for those who want to try something a little different. Must-trys from the menu include the Beats N’ Beef (slow cooked beef cheeks with grilled beets, carrots, eschallot, spinach, chickpeas, sourdough and a fried egg) and the Breakfast With The Sakumas (miso grilled king salmon with smoked eel croquette, 63’ egg, radish petit salad and kewpi mayo). Perched across from Barangaroo Wharf, Devon Cafe is the perfect pit stop along your harbourside walk.
