Glebe Food and wine
Eating and drinking in Glebe
Glebe locals probably invented the term café culture. Because it's oh-so-easy to order a latte and watch the world go by on this bustling strip of inner-west bohemia. That is, if you're not enjoying a bistro meal at one of the area's pubs, hunting down a hidden wine bar or busting a gut at a comedy night.
Cafes, restaurants, markets
From budget eats to hidden bars, beautiful views to old-world pubs, you'll be spoilt for choice with all of Glebe's excellent food and wine options.
For noisy fun, great Mexican cocktails and a wall full of chilli sauces, book a table at the Flying Fajita Sisters on Glebe Point Road. Sunday lunch? The Glebe Point Diner's comfy banquettes and fresh, funky menu has got you covered. For a hot date, you can't go past the Boathouse at Blackwattle Bay, where the fish pie is the signature dish and the twinkling lights of the city view beyond the picture windows is nothing short of magical.
If beers and pub fare are more your speed, head to one of the traditional English pubs in the area such as the Nag's Head, which serves hearty meals at the Stable's Bistro. The Harold Park Hotel, located opposite the former Harold Park Raceway, is also good for a quiet beer and a bite.
Budget eats are big in Glebe, so if you're short on bucks order a drink and a $10 meal at Bedlam Bar and Food, a funky little place with sandstone walls, retro-chic chesterfield lounges and a line-up of stand-up comedians. Or head to the cheap and cheerful Different Drummer for its nightly happy hour, decent tapas menu and ambient soundtrack of funk, soul and groove.
Love a small bar? Glebe's favourites include Tommy's Beer Café, with its Czech, German and Belgian beers. Or park yourself on a mismatched sofa at Mr Falcon's, where it's all about the cocktails, boutique beers and jugs of sangria.
If you've come to Glebe seeking food and wine bars, try the chic, wood-heavy Timbah on Forsyth Street, or wind your way through the second-hand titles at Sappho Bookstore on Glebe Point Road to the lively tapas and wine bar in the back courtyard. It's a great spot to sip a glass of vino and enjoy some live music which could be anything from a string quartet to a local muso strumming a guitar.
