The Different Drummer, Glebe

The Nag’s Head is a traditional English pub where you can enjoy a steak and pint in the bistro. The Toxteth features a fine mix of modern fare with old school touches and beer garden,  while the famous Friend in Hand is a classic Aussie pub, with colourful memorabilia throughout. It has a bistro and hosts events upstairs, including the popular poetry nights.

Local diner-style cafe Badde Manors is the go-to for everything from eggs on toast to a slice of their killer baked ricotta cheesecake. They’re open for all three meals of the day (and snacks in between), and everything they serve is vegetarian. Clipper Cafe is another great cafe option, with simple breakfast, great salad and well-made coffee. 

Astor Espresso Cafe, Glebe

For bread and traditional French pastries and cakes, visit La Banette where you will find decadent eclairs, danishes and petit fours.

The Astor Espresso is a great little cafe and a local favourite. Found in one of Glebe's classic Art Deco buildings, next to the former Astor cinema, this relaxed venue serves all-day breakfast specials, such as haloumi stacked with poached eggs, as well as burgers, soups and sandwiches.
