When you think Randwick, it’s possible you don’t think that you’ll stumble across one of Sydney’s best cafes, but if you head in and check out the delicious Rell’s Kitchen, you are definitely in for a treat. Run by Sydney catering queen, Laurelle Simons, it’s the kind of cosy, friendly café that welcomes you back like family every time you walk in the door. We love this joint because we can always get our fix of naughty and nice, whether we’re in the mood for a green smoothie or a big ol’ hearty sandwich.
Speaking of treats, let’s begin with the knock-your-socks-off muffins that are impossible to resist as they stare at us through the display. Whether you go for a soft, crumbly muffin oozing with gooey Nutella, or a sweet berry and ricotta bad boy, you’ll be smiling ear to ear. There is no wrong decision when it comes to Rell’s Kitchen, especially if you decide to tuck into the fruit and yoghurt parfait, which is almost too perfectly messy to get stuck into. Almost.
When the time comes for something more substantial, we love ourselves a hefty stack of corn fritters topped with avocado, tomato, and a poached egg. Want to go all out? You deserve it! Get stuck into the grilled chorizo and haloumi burger and thank us later. When winter rolls around and nothing but a hearty, soul-warming dish will do, Rell’s offer a generous spread of specials, from cosy soups to vegetarian curries and lasagnes.
For those yummy mummies or daddies that are on the hunt for a child-friendly café in Sydney, Rell’s Kitchen is the jackpot. There’s a cute little corner full of playthings to keep your munchkins occupied while you tuck into a coffee and a plate of soul-satisfying eggs benedict, take some time out to read the paper, and grab the kids a babycino.
Sometimes we’re in the mood for a coffee and a cheeky muffin, and other times we go all out and polish off a full big breakfast, either way we always leave with happy tummies and a smear of Nutella on our cheeks. No shame here!
