The verdict

It’s no secret that we love a good rooftop bar, especially when it helps us combine a little bit of sightseeing, with sitting on our bums and sipping cocktails. Well, No.1 William is one of those kinds of places, sitting on level 4 of the iconic Australian Museum, this 180-seat restaurant boast floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor terrace that overlooks Hyde park and Sydney Harbour.

Head here anytime of the day (no, really), because they’re open for breakfast, which will see you feasting on classics like the William’s Eggs Benedict or a super healthy coconut, chia and quinoa granola with Greek yoghurt. We also have to mention that the coffee is by local Sydney roaster, The Little Marionette, which happens to be one of our all time fave brews.

For lunch, there’s sandwich specials as well as salads, burgers and steak. We obviously recommend that you leave it until later in the day, so you can settle in and shamelessly quaff a few wines while indulging in a chocolate molten lava cake or pavlova.
