Unlike its name suggests, Smalltown is biggest café in the beach side suburb of Avalon, this coffee hub is a favourite among locals for their always-on-point Single Origins coffee, trendy interiors and friendly vibes. The biggest selling point is their creative seasonal inspired menu, which offers all the Sydney favourites (yes, a delicious version of avocado on toast is on there) and some exciting others too. If you’re there for breakfast, the house muesli with sous vide rosewater pears, honey yoghurt, toasted macadamias, coconut shreds and fruit goes down a treat.
When lunch time hits, we find it hard to see past the pulled pork, cabbage, apple and carrot slaw, fried onions and chipotle mayo bursting from a Brassiere Bread Japanese milk bun. Whatever you order, you simply cannot leave without taking away one of their adorable daily-made donuts with new flavours each day; think chocolate peanut and vanilla-rose dusted freeze dried strawberry, glazed with so much attention to detail, its almost a crime to eat. With their customisable meals, high quality ingredients, free dog biscuits and all day brekkies, Smalltown is the type of Sydney café you can bring the whole family to.
