Venture towards the slightly quieter end of Newtown and you’ll stumble across 212 Blu on Australia Street. With a totally chilled vibes and god damn delicious food and drinks, it’s the kind of place you’ll want to seat yourself all day and gorge on everything.
Whether it’s the sirens of the Newtown Fire Station next door or one of their speciality slow drop filter coffees that wakes you up, you’ll feel in full swing for the day with a side of their house-made banana waffles, topped with ricotta, macadamias, maple syrup and chocolate. If you’ve got more of a savoury tooth, we strongly suggest you opt for the infamous 212 toastie, aka the bossone-handerr, jam-packed with shaved ham, soft boiled egg, pickled carrot, slaw and relish.
On Fridays and Saturdays they’re staying up way past their usual bed time to help you through the night with a meat and cheese boards as well as selection of other plates that were made for washing down with a wine (or three). See you there.
