About Brunch in Sydney

Sydney has many wonderful dining grounds where you can start your day, with sun-filled cafés, innovative restaurants and pleasurable outdoor settings found thoughout the city.

Relax at the neighbourhood hangout The Grounds of Alexandria, in a beautiful ambience of lush olive trees. As well as a vegie and herb gardens with roaming chickens, there’s a bakery with a huge bread oven, coffee roastery, café and regular market. It’s a buzzing meeting spot for locals and out-of-towners alike at the weekend.

The Grounds of Alexandria, Sydney

Redfern's Three Williams is a cool, warehouse style café with an innovative menu. Try one of the signature ‘naan' sandwiches with soft, freshly made bread filled with marinated tempeh or glazed beef brisket. Surry Hills nearby institution Bourke Street Bakery is famous for its freshly baked tarts, pizzettas, quiches and pies, and now also has a café in Barangaroo

Devon Café continues the tradition of brunchtime excellence in Surry Hills. This popular dining spot has a big following, with an inventive menu that features fusion-styled breakfast and coffee. Experience their 'Breakfast with the Sakuma's', a miso grilled king salmon with a radish petit salad and kewpie mayonnaise.

Kurtosh, Sydney

The Yellow team in Potts Point love to be innovative, and their weekend brunch offer is no exception. The poached eggs come in an onion broth and the lightly salted sweet-savoury liquorice bread is a must. At Alpha in the city, weekday breakfast mornings mean ouzo-cured ocean trout on bagels, baked eggs with roasted peppers and rice puddings spiked with sour-cherry preserve. 

Try a Hungarian 'chimney pastry' at Kurtosh in Randwick. And at Balmain's Efendy, Sunday's breakfast menu comprises more than 30 types of Turkish breakfast delicacies. Newtown hotspot Brewtown is one of the neighbourhood’s many cafés where breakfast reigns, with fabulous coffee and inventive plates, from mini eggs Benedict rolls to freshly baked 'brewnuts' and 'cruffins'.

Meanwhile, Bill Granger continues to serve sunlit brunch favourites from the menu at his Bill's, in Bondi and Surry Hills, that started the trend years ago - ricotta hotcakes with banana and honeycomb butter, sweetcorn fritters and fresh fruit throughout.
