Sydney’s best breakfast spots

Sydney's best breakfast spots.

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so give it the attention it deserves and start the morning right at one of these four fabulous eateries.

Opera Kitchen

Tucked away in Sydney's city centre, this eatery serves customers on the lower concourse of the iconic Sydney Opera House. In the morning light, the view across Sydney Harbour toward the Sydney Harbour Bridge is absolutely stunning, so you'll need an amazing breakfast to go with it!

If you want to try something a little different, order one of the Opera Kitchen's delectable Breakfast Burgers. For just $10, you can get bacon, egg, hash brown, aged cheddar, aioli and barbecue sauce, all on a freshly baked bun. There is also an equally delicious Vegetarian option available.

Breakfast is served here from 07:30 until 11:00, so it's perfect for both early and late risers.

The Grounds of Alexandria

Ths restaurant is found in Inner Sydney and is also a must-visit. It boasts delicious coffee made from beans that are ground on the premises. They also pride themselves on using locally grown, organic produce in all of their dishes – some of which comes from their own private garden!

This restaurant's flavourful food is matched by unique decor, which combines the industrial charm of bare brick walls with globe lighting and modern table settings.

It should be noted that The Grounds of Alexandria only takes group bookings of six or more people. So gather your friends and meet up for a morning meal you'll never forget!

Bangbang Espresso

There's no better way to start the day than with breakfast at Bangbang Espresso, a bright-coloured and stylish eatery located at 113 Reservoir Street in bustling Surry Hills.

It takes about eight minutes to drive here if you're staying in the city centre, and it's open every day of the week – so it's the perfect place to grab an early breakfast before you head out sight-seeing!

If you're into big, Brit-inspired breakfasts, Bangbang Espresso is definitely worth a visit – we recommend the black pudding and bacon butties! Or you can opt for the gut-busting Bangbang Breakfast Stack, which includes potato rosti, spinach, poached eggs, delicious pancetta and creamy hollandaise sauce, all for under $20.

And, for those who don't eat meat, a reviewer on Urban Spoon says Bangbang Expresso's Vegetarian Big Breakfast is well worth the trip.

Bangbang Espresso was opened by a former DJ in 2009, and has been a popular breakfast spot ever since. The cafe's combination of hearty food, urban decor and modern music makes it much sought-after by locals and out-of-towners alike.

BlackStar Pastry

Located in scenic Newtown, this chic bakery is an excellent place to get breakfast on the go if you want a quick bite before heading out for a day of exploring.

Who says you can't start the day with cakes and cookies? BlackStar Pastry is home to a wide and delicious range of sweet treats that are sure to put a smile on your face. Their blueberry bundt cake is simply divine, or you could try pairing a couple of Earl Grey macarons with the classic tea of the same name.

If, however, you'd prefer a pastry that's more traditionally associated with breakfast, you can't go past their heavenly cinnamon scrolls, danishes and chocolate croissants. Pair one or all of these with a strong coffee or home-brewed iced tea and you're good to go!

They are open all week from 07:00 – so, if you're staying in Sydney for a while, you might want to pay this bakery a second or third visit.
